Author Biography

Time and relativity have fascinated me ever since childhood. That was when I first noticed that time could on occasions literally stand still. Of course, Einstein had already realized this, and it first came to him during one of his favored thought experiments in which he would he would use his imagination to beta-test a new theory.
That is how I write a story - I take an idea or a concept and work it through in my imagination first. And before I even write the first sentence, I sketch out a storyboard to make sure it has a flow. The characters come next and they are all facets of different people I have known. Then along comes the words, and of course, it helps to shop around and pick the best ones.

A Stitch in Time: Six Thought-provoking Stories About Time & Reality comprises tales of various lengths and styles, but always capturing moments in time that are special to one or more people. Or perhaps not capturing it, for is your “now” mine? The first story, Clocks Slay Time, can be read straight through or in chapter number order, and the story is different; it is a matter of perception. Who knows what mysteries the others hold? Romance, horror, computer manipulation, sci-fi, and an Ireland divided: thought-provoking stories indeed come from the mind of Senan Gil Senan, beautifully and vividly written, but are you ready for a roller coaster ride through a miscellany of emotions? Will you accept the challenge, and end up utterly confused or possibly wiser?

A Stitch in Time: Six Thought-provoking Stories About Time & Reality by Senan Gil Senan captivated me completely. Every story is different in length and subject, but the concept is always the same: time. There is even an element of comedy, for who could resist Cynthia Parkes, a lonely widow who makes sure her home is spotless before she turns on her laptop, just in case anyone is looking? Her worry is the camera! My favourite is Timeless; the description of an eight-year-old boy’s experience of an explosion during the Irish troubles in Belfast, and its lasting effects, is a heart-breaker. For me, it encompasses everything Senan Gil Senan has expressed throughout, and he does it in the shortest story of all. A Stitch in Time is a marvellous book from a very talented author.
