Half Irish by @Petewaugh24
“A must read!” – Rachael Waugh
“A perfect read for teens or someone looking to explore Ireland.” – Anne Patterson
Follow 17 year-old Tyler from the busy streets of Manhattan to the empty beaches of Ireland. From gigging in coffee shops in Tribeca to standing on the Cliffs of Moher, busking in Belfast to late night drives with his beautiful summer girlfriend Tabitha, Half Irish takes you on a journey as you rediscover what it means to fall in love all over again and again and again.
Thanks to the wistful hope-filled thoughts and a driving narrative Half Irish, the debut novel from Peter J. S. Waugh, is one of the best debuts to come out of Belfast in decades. This heart-warming coming of age love story will make you laugh until you cry, and cry until you begin to dream again.
TylerSontoro loves life. Follow this wistful, charming teenager as he bags his first job, finishes high school, pours his heart out on The High Line before heading to Ireland for a summer vacation that might just change the direction of his life. On a crisp November evening Tyler discovers that he is going to visit Ireland for the summer.
Half Irish was described by Ulster Tatler, Northern Ireland’s leading monthly magazine, as ‘A wonderful debut novel that not only fits perfectly into the Young Adult genre but will also appeal to those readers who will forever be young at heart. Delving into themes of hope, love, loss and self-discovery, I completed the novel with a feeling I had been on a journey with Tyler and I loved every minute of it.’
Biography of Peter Waugh
Peter J. S. Waugh is a 30 years-old writer from Belfast, Northern Ireland. When he writes, something happens. Call it peace, call it comfort, call it love. Writing provides Peter access to one of the most powerful tools he has been gifted with, the place where reality meets fantasy; a vivid imagination.
When Peters imagination is free to run wild he creates stories, characters and books that will make you laugh, love, cry and live a better life. Peter is currently working on two projects – a WW2 love story and the first in a series of kids mystery books. When Peter isn’t writing he loves playing and watching sport, being in nature, dreaming, creating, laughing and also grilling on his BBQ.
“I read this book, cover to cover in less than 2 days. Could not put it down. I felt like I knew the characters and was part of their journey. Hoping for prequels, sequels and spin offs to this novel. A really enjoyable, light and inspirational read.” – Kevin Havekes
Definitely a book I need, and want, to read! :)
