Banking, Beer & Robert The Bruce is a fictional novel depicting two slowly entwining families from Irish/Scottish and English descent in a humorous and real-life way. Mixing bawdy British humor and American-style action-adventure, this is good old fashioned story-telling at its best.

Volume I of The Book of Tolan begins in 1779. Murphy Patrick Tolan needs to get out of Ireland - the potato famine is starving the population. The wealthy stand-in queues for the Great Ships bound for Boston and the poor are trying to travel to the closest land over the Irish Sea, Scotland. Here they have to learn how to wear skirts, listen to screeching heavy-metal music and drink brown and horrible-smelling, gassy beer; unheard of in the Olde Country. The Tolan family survives these dilemmas and the family goes on a down-to-earth, money-making, hilarious and often poignant world journey of which most of us can only wish for in our lives.

    " This is a great frolic through the past with a taste of Fielding, Benny Hill and storytelling that follows a family through Ireland, France, England and other countries. A sprawling panorama with unforgettable characters. "
