About Connemara Press

From a peaceful hillside in the tiny community of Yellow Spring in historic Hampshire County, West Virginia, Connemara Press provides the umbrella structure for a variety of books and other writings by Robert Flanagan, who has been a columnist for The Hampshire Review of Romney, WV, since 1999 and has contributed guest columns to The Winchester (VA) Star as well.

Bob Flanagan spent 38 years living in exotic and not-so-exotic ports of call around the world. After a military career in two services (both the United States Marines and the United States Army), a span of years with high-tech corporations, and various stints as a college English/Literature/Writing Instructor, policeman, insurance investigator, steel mill roustabout, salesman, as well as a variety of lesser-interest jobs, he finally made the transition to the one thing he had been in pursuit of all along—full time writing, with all its attendant risks and, hopefully too, a modicum of its rewards.

In addition to columns in the newspaper, Flanagan has published dozens of short stories, articles, poems, book reviews and interviews. Another novel and two collections of poetry await publication. Several of these books are now offered through Connemara Press.

All three books of The ASA Trilogy are available on this website.
