What an absolutely great discovery today for Ireland's ancient past.
Archaeological excavations at Dowth Hall, Co. Meath have uncovered a monumental passage tomb, complete with kerbstones, quartz and STUNNING rock art. This added to the scale of the already impressive Boyne Valley site.

The Witch of Ballyvale

What do people fear? The unknown, the ruling classes, or individualism? Aged four, Mags Rose was plucked from her home that was alien to her and placed in a world where she would grow to be an individual, strong in her beliefs and values. Others fear her, wishing to dominate, and wanting her submission to the norms of society. She stands firm.

I would like to wish everyone a great weekend where ever you are in the world! Enjoy and make the most of it! Be who you are and remember you are blessed with all your talents and gifts. Do not be afraid of them - embrace them.

Life has distracted me much of late however now I am getting back into my writing and working on revamping the awards and author programme with the Ben Kesp Academy. Soon, there will be a self-study option to work from the comfort of your own home at your own pace.

The next two and final two instalments of the Dr. Elizabeth Bannon Series are out this year in 2018 and after many years I will be wrapping up this series that first began in 2012 with the first instalment published in 2014.

A new weekly serial is due to begin soon and this will be available to read from the Ben Kesp Website. Spend some time this weekend with a good story, fall in or out of love with a character and feed your imagination.

Wishing you all the best
Hugs
Ben

The Portrait of Isabella Simmons

Chapter 1

1924 Western Connemara, Ireland

The white linen twists, dancing with the southerly breeze, its repetitive flapping sounds comforting to her ears. Ever since turning twelve four years earlier, fear has taken control of her body, cowering each time she hears or sights her father. It was like he suddenly emerged in her life from a dark pit. As a child, he was often absent, working locally as a labourer; but then he stopped, and his days were spent in her home. Johanna soon discovered his nature and his moods.

This morning is no exception. Her hands tremble while holding the white pillow case between her fingers. The outline of the blood stain still visible in the morning sun from another beating her mother received at his cold and callous hands. The flapping of the sheets returns her attention to the clothes lines once more as she pegs the pillow case allowing it to join its comrades in a dance with the wind.

Raising her eyes to the blue sky dotted with only a few specs of white clouds, Johanna inhales the morning freshness. She loves her home, but not the man that rests within it. Her recent memories of her father are ones of fear. His body is large, a stocky man with thick arms and legs. His shouts are like howls to her ears. She would watch as her mother cowers under his commands.

Moving her gaze to her little home, a small cottage with a low roof and

Palace of Versailles - An Expression of the Ancien Rรฉgime

On visiting the Palace of Versailles, located a short distance from Paris City, and its wonderful landscaped gardens with numerous water fountains, one can only marvel at the creation. On a recent trip to the palace and grounds, I was delighted to explore the magnificent groves and fountains including Latonaโ€™s Fountain, Apolloโ€™s Fountain, The Ballroom Grove, Neptune Grove and the beautiful Colonnade Grove consisting of 32
