Irish Author John A. Brennan's “The Journey: A Nomad Reflects”
From ancient Ireland to the majesty of the Egyptian pyramids, author and poet John A. Brennan tells his life's journey in a series of melodic rhapsodies. He is a quintessential traveler, philosopher and composer of rhythmic narrative. Through his poetry, the reader gets to accompany John on an amazing journey through time as he pays homage to the likes of Caesar, Yeats, Patrick Pearse, and Bobby Sands. John is the winner of the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Award for his book "Don't Die with Regrets, Lessons My Father Taught Me."
New York, N.Y., Oct. 22, 2015 (News-Wire)
The Journey represents Brennan’s second book, and like last year’s “Don’t Die with Regrets” which was chosen as best memoir in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, reflects a spiritual sojourn that begins with homage to the author’s Irish roots. However, while ancient Ireland sets the stage for Brennan’s combination of narrative and poetic wanderings, such ancient and mystical locales as the Boyne Valley, Chaco Canyon, Rameses Temple, Nubia and the Mayan ruins also become part of the reader’s itinerary.
About the Author
John Anthony Brennan is a native of Crossmaglen, a small town in County Armagh, Ireland. He left his beloved, sacred green isle many moons ago to see the world and has been island hopping ever since. He once lived on another island called Manhattan, which he calls the largest open-air lunatic asylum on the planet. He finally escaped to the sanctuary of the Long Island just in time to save his sanity, or so he thought. He was trained as a master carpenter but soon after arriving in New York, he changed career and studied to become a building manager. He managed a residential property on prestigious Park Avenue for many years and another multi family dwelling in Garden City, Long Island. The urge to travel and explore the cultures and sacred places of the ancient peoples has always been his driving force. Starting in 1993, he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do just that. He spent seven years traveling and absorbed the energies he believes emanates from all sacred sites. From Newgrange in the Boyne Valley in Ireland, Stonehenge in England, the Mayan and Aztec temples scattered throughout South America and the colossal pyramids in Egypt. John has visited them all, and is convinced that a common thread connects us in ways we did not think possible. John incorporates his experiences in his works and some of his writing expresses a spiritual dimension.
Delighted and Honored to have my second book recognized.
