Here we go, my first Blog post.
I suppose I should start with an introduction. My name, as you'll have guessed by now, is T.P. O'Dúnín. I've been a writer for most of my life, in one way or another, and to date this has been the source of many of my frustrations. I wouldn't change it, as you can't acknowledge the good without the bad. My principal interests and inspirations come from Fantasy, and Science Fiction, but also a smattering of Popular Science, Action Adventure, Horror, Thrillers, and Historical Fiction for good measure. When it comes to writing, Science Fiction, and Fantasy are where I prefer to be, but I'm open to dabbling in other genres.
Outside of writing, my interests are varied. I drive Motorcycles for fun and for necessity. I Snowboard, badly but enjoy it thoroughly. I travel. I practice HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) focusing on the Longsword, I'm awful, and I don't get to train anywhere near as often as I'd like, but I love it, and I play the ukulele, not as well as I'd like, but I do the best I can.
Cats! I love those domineering domestic despots, and have one of my own, or he has me I guess, if I'm being honest. He's the boss around here and I the, mostly, willing servant.
I guess that's enough about me for the time being.
