Richard Sutton Good to hear from you, Dustin!


Richard Sutton I'm going to look into setting up a group for those interested in Irish-themed literature, fiction and writing. Let me know if this seems like something you'd be interested in. I'll try to secure some interviews with writers in the genre, etc.
