About Séamus Mac Aogáin
I fell in love with rural Spain in 1970 and moved to the Sierra Guadarrama in 2003 to continue my creative writing as John McGahern had suggested many moons before that. Since then I've written The Road to Abbeyshrule, Tell Me Another, Someone's Always Watching You and La Reina de Corazones/The Queen of Hearts. Right now I'm writing As Far As Turn Back and hope to have it up and running sometime in 2022. I do a little teaching, a lot of fasting and abstinence to keep body and soul together in the fond hope that one day soon my writing will allow me a modicum of creature comfort. In the meantime, if a White Knight were to come along I'd be happy to spend all my time writing.
Along the way they meet the good, the bad and the ugly that can be found in any village in any part of the world. Tess tries to save the young couple from the undue influence of organised religion, a State enmeshed in such traditional values as well as the powerful passion that rises between the young lovers.
