Michael Whelton is a retired medical doctor who has also dedicated himself to art and literary pursuits. His work has previously appeared in publications such as The Consultant, Irish Medical Times, as well as being broadcast on RTÉ’s Sunday Miscellany radio programme.
Portraits of the Past
Life, death and all things in between, including the decisions that we make, or have thrust upon us and how we face the consequences; how we allow those consequences to shape our destinies. These are among the poignant moments and personal epiphanies captured in a skillfully blended collection of bittersweet tales.
Through the Pages of History
Was Mozart really buried in a pauper’s grave? What role did yellow fever play in the construction of the Panama Canal? How did the painter Renoir cope with rheumatoid arthritis in his old age? While history has vilified King Herod, could it be that the verdict has been overly harsh?
