Hi everyone my name is Aubrey Wynne and I am one of over 100 authors/bloggers/ on the Little Things Blog Hop! For those of you don’t me, I am an historical romance author and you can find me and my books on all major retailers. Browse my site and see what tickles your fancy.
So what are the little things in your life that rate at the top of your list? For me it’s music and books. Let me share! On my visit to Ireland last summer, I met some local artists in Ennis, Co. Clare that made my trip. Meet Pat O’Connor of the Custy’s Traditional Music Shop (also a musician) and two more local artists that made us feel at home and welcome.
The lovely chap in the middle is Cyril O’Donaghue who not only signed his CD but invited us to a pub session a few blocks away. It was our first introduction to a real local gathering, and it was everything I ever imagined. Click on the photo above, and check out the authentic Irish music at Pat’s shop, including his own instrumental collaboration. Or stop by Cyril’s Facebook page by clicking his name above.
Here is the CD I have been listening to for St. Patrick’s Day. Click on the image and watch both Blackey O’Connell and Cyril creating some lovely music together! Or visit Blackey’s Facebook page by clicking on his name.
My other little thing I couldn’t live without is a good book. I write, I edit, and I read. But lately, my love of a good story has been renewed by audiobooks. There is something about a great plot partnered with a strong narrator that makes a story come to life. My latest fascination has been the combination of Laura Kinsale’s extraordinary prose combined with the voice of Nicholas Boulton. I am on my third book with this team and enthralled.
