Authors On Their Own Writing: Luke Eastwood

I've interviewed Druid and writer Luke Eastwood about which of his own books he most liked and why, continuing my mini interview series with authors.

Q: Of the books you’ve written, which is your favourite?

A: The Journey

Q: What’s it about?

A: It's a multi-spiritual book, about the core of religiosity/spirituality and the questions that we all have as humans about, life, the world and the meaning of our existence.

Q: Why is it your favourite?

It's not my usual thing and I think it says a lot in a very small amount of words. I've always tried to be succinct as it's easy to lose or bore people with long rambling and pretentious writing, I'm particularly pleased with the brevity of the message and I think it makes it more impactful.

Q: Tell me a bit more about yourself and any other books you’ve written.

A: I'm 53 now and I've moved 24 times I think, the last one (I hope is coming soon) and I'm a bit of a chameleon, having worked in many jobs and different types of arts too. I try to make every book different, but I've written 3 books on Druidry to date and I have 1 more, final Druid book in progress, which will take a long time to complete.

However, I've always been interested in magic and esoteric arts since I discovered a book of Egyptian myths when I was 10, in the school library, purely by accident. I love all mythology from across the world, it teaches you a lot about other cultures. Of course I love the Irish myths too, it's even recorded in the landscape here.

The Journey is published by Moon Books. It can also be viewed at Amazon
