    Hi Paula.
    We have really deeply enjoyed your Chronicles of Iona and eagerly await the 4th book. I understood it was to be released to coincide with the900 th anniversary of Columchille. I haven’t seen that it’s published yet, am I myopic ?

      Hi Alan/Fhearghuis! Many thanks for this. I’m delighted you are enjoying the series! And not to worry–your eyesight is 20/20! I had hoped to have ‘Cradle of Saints’ finished in time to mark Columba’s milestone anniversary this past December but the book got very big. So much to say! I’m finishing it up now with an eye to launch this April. I will certainly keep everyone posted as to my progress. In the meantime, keep well and thanks again for checking in. Paula
