Sean Roberts, a novel, is fiction. Some ideas are based on actual history or perceived truths. I mention real people in the story, Mozart, for example. Many sub-genres exist within the story line; however, it’s not true historical fiction. I deviate from historic fact often. For example, Cork is mentioned as a major medieval territory in Ireland. I used Cork because it was believed my ancestors came from County Cork. Parts of the book show England as a tyrant, invaders of Ireland, from the Norman invaders to the mid-seventeenth century wars. Sean Roberts was not written to misrepresent the past, or to compare the violent Irish conflict to any tragic atrocities committed against any people. I also use religion throughout the novel, mostly Catholicism, not to judge but perhaps to ask my own questions, stemming from my Catholic school, altar boy upbringing.
I do have a tale to tell and I want you, the reader, to be my audience. As you read on, you will realize Sean Roberts is all about love, undeniably.
I believe love is far greater than hate, not only in biological or psychological terms but also in percentages. Love is more prevalent than hate; it’s clearly in the majority. Strength in numbers says love not only dominates, but it has the power, through these numbers, to stamp out hate, once and for all.
We’re born with love, all of us, a hundred percent. Not everyone is born with hate though. In fact, I believe no one is born with hate; it can only be acquired through the human experience of life. It’s almost always triggered by contact with another human being, consistent to the way an infectious disease is spread, human-to-human. Love, however, is connected to the human spirit. They both mean the same thing. Hate does not.
Everything we do is influenced by our perception of love. The bottom line is love conquers all. Always has and always will. We have no control over our own love, we love naturally. However, we can choose to spread this love to others. Our only hope is our love is reciprocal. If you return the love, it will spread, like a fire, faster and with more force than any other response possible. Love can change people. It has throughout time. People changed by love can change time. The proof is in the depth of their love.
I chose to display an Irish flag on the cover of Sean Roberts. Perhaps it would have been better to have a world flag representing everyone, an undivided world. I truly believe we are all one, brothers and sisters—humankind—all races, religious beliefs, sexual orientation. It shouldn’t matter; we’re all one and the same.
Sean Roberts’ message is simple: love one another. Imagine what the world could be like if everyone understood this simple notion, especially nowadays. Think of a world with no wars, no hatred, and no oppression—only peace.
