Well, enough of that. Back to my Epic Music mega mixes.
I wanted to introduce another character from Book Two, Captain Sean MacRoy. I had thought he was an interesting character, but it wasn’t until after talking with several friends that are beta reading the story for me that I found out just how cool he is. So I’m introducing him here.
Captain MacRoy is Irish, but his decedents come from Scotland. His ancestors intermingled with Norse Settlers before they were invited as a group of almost fifty families to Ireland by the Irish Nobility as mercenaries. The locals called them “Foreign Geals” instead of Scotts due to their mixed heritage, which they later adopted as their name becoming known as the Gallowglass Clan. Sean is a big man with bright blue eyes, curly red hair and broad shoulders. He’s tall, standing at 6’4” or 193 cm, and was born in Belfast, Ireland. Brought up as a Protestant Unionist, he followed the family’s business of hauling bulk-cargo with his ship named Triumph, which was built during the Second World War. Over the years he’s traveled the world, mostly working off the coast of Africa and India where he became a smuggler and gun runner until meeting up with Larissa Evens. Although, once a smuggler always a smuggler.
Sean has a close nit crew of Irish, German and Polish merchant marines that have a number of unique skills acquired over the years from their legal and nefarious activities. Although now-a-days they run mostly legit operations depending upon the corruption of the local governments they are forced to deal with.
Anyway, the story is coming along good. I hope everyone likes the quick update.
