‘Can you see what sunset will bring?’ Owain murmured . ‘Death and victory.’ ‘I predicted as much. Which side has death?’ ‘Both have death and neither everlasting victory. – ‘I think you have taken lessons from the Greek oracle,’ Owain snapped. ‘Whoever was behind it, was expert in giving ambiguous answers.’ Crach grinned. ‘Ambivalence is an art coveted and cultivated by soothsayers, my prince. God’s decrees were made before the existence of time. They are eternal, and comprehend all events because unlike us, He is aware of the eventual outcome, which given his wisdom we must trust to be the only and right one.’ – ‘He has granted you the sight.’ – ‘He has granted me the ability to glimpse ahead of mortal time, but I hold to the wise words of Abbot David. “God hath already decreed the end, so He hath also decreed the means for attaining that end.” It is not for us to see, determine or criticise God’s plan.’ ‘Are those last words also Abbot David? – ‘Pure Crach,’ Crach admitted.

This site has been expertly and beautifully constructed by the talented designer/s @ Web Design Wales. At the moment it is an ongoing project which will allow for time for all of my books to be re-jacketed by the brilliant firstname.lastname@example.org. As a result some of my books still have temporary jackets, but given the quality of Steve’s work I think you will agree the results are well worth the wait. Thank you for your patience.
Check out my blog on the ‘Random Thoughts‘ page, which will be updated over time.
