The Raid


(Picture: Owen Law)

I find the above place quite appealing. It's called Dolbadarn Castle and it was built in the late 12th Century (and was mainly used by Prince Llywelyn to keep his brother prisoner for 20 years!) It's located at Llanberis, and I've featured it in my writings tonight. Without saying too much, let's just say it becomes 'reused' and is subject to a raid. It's a fairly crucial stage in the book, so I will need to spend some time working at this one to get it right.

I finished the section regarding the Duel last night, so it was now time to move onto this event. Again, I'm imagining a battle scene, which I hope will still be realistic and exciting enough to keep the reader enthralled. Of course, that'll be for you to judge when you read it!

The location of this site is particularly inspiring – perhaps you might agree from the picture? As well as some pretty magnificent mountains in the background (I think I've climbed the one behind!) it has a fantastic view over Llyn Peris towards Dinorwic Power Station. You probably might remember the view featured in a past a few weeks back. Well, that was taken from here! If you're ever in this neck of the woods, it's well worth a visit! The castle is owned by CADW and has open access to the public. It's a lovely spot (looking forward to visiting there again soon!)

Until the next time…..

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008.

I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
