The Last Land

The Celts did not fear death, but they did fear to lose their memorised doctrines and were forced to try and save them, against a massive empire and the dark forces of the underworld; a boy Druid could twist their fate.
Turlough (the leader of the Druids) knew that the most important decision ever to be faced by any Druid rested firmly on his shoulders. More

About John Hayden

Hi, I am from Ireland, born in Finglas, Dublin in 1966. I am a family man who loves writing and self-expression. I have been writing since I was eighteen years old when I versed my first poem. Since then, I have written hundreds of poems. More recently I have published a collection of my Poetry on It' called '63 Poems' Watchers of the mind
I never thought of myself as someone who could put together a book or books. I might not have received the opportunity were it not for me falling ill with cancer in 2004. I see that illness, which was the worst thing in the world back then, as the key that freed my mind to indulge in what I can only call absolute passion. Back then, in my convalescence, I captured the essence of three stories. I quickly published the first two stories; fearing in my heart that the cancer was coming back to get me. I was on the verge of releasing the last story when I paused. The story told of a sacred manuscript, and I had not given sufficient insight to the reader, as to where this sacred manuscript originated. So I decided to take some notes about the origins of the sacred manuscript.
My first note 001, turned into my present novel. This is my debut novel, The Last Land, will be released on 13th April 2020
All my life up to the time when I had cancer, I worked in construction. Since then, I am so grateful for receiving the opportunity to step into my creative sphere. There's little so special than to be caught up in the wonderment as it comes to me, I am all but in the scenes as my fingers dance on the keys.
I began writing my debut novel in 2012, and I completed the first draft in 2015 and have been polishing up my work since then. So grateful am I for the graceful attentiveness, excellent guidance, and assistance from some of the most selfless people I have yet encountered. I extend my sincerest gratitude to those beautiful people; without them, my work may not have come to fruition. They are mentioned in my acknowledgements.
To be afforded enough time to tap into the river of creativity and to indulge in my life's passions. That I may express that which flows there; I have been allowed the freedom to be me — such a gracious gift.
