About the Author
Jim Landers is 51, lives in Nottingham in the UK and has a wife and one son
They have a dog, a bearded collie on who they based our illustrations for the story.
His dad was from Clogheen, Co. Tipperary, and his Mum, from Bookeen, Co. Galway
I wrote the book whilst on Covid Lockdown in Clogheen during March to July 2020.
It really is amazing what long dogs walks and quality reflection time can do with the imagination.
This is my first book.
'Lardoolin' as he was referred in his day, was my great great grandfather and the town undertaker during the famine.
A phrase referring to him at the time was 'Lardoolins yellow cart or van'. He must have painted his horse or donkey drawn cart/hearse yellow for some reason.
Reigh cemetery that was used during the famine is still there and was used for mass burial.
The character Ma' is my grandmother Margaret Landers nee Grey.
Previous to the book, I worked as a project manager in healthcare for 18 years and was made redundant in April 2020.
I am establishing my new career in developing the Lardoolin adventure through some sequels and have a special edition planned to launch in the next couple of months.
