David K. McDonnell 

David K. McDonnell is an Irish-American with a passion for both Irish and American history. Here’s what David says about himself in the “About the Author” section at the end of ClanDonnell: “If you are an astute reader, you may have gleaned a few things about me already. That’s what happens when you write a book in the first person. I am an American and have lived all but a year or so of my life in Michigan. I was born in Detroit in its west side area called Redford. I am married, and my wife and I raised four children in the Detroit area. I moved “Up North” (which is how folks in Michigan refer to the northern half of the state) when I retired. I now live on Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan. Rarely does an evening goes by without me enjoying the sun setting over Lake Michigan. I attended the University of Michigan in my favorite town, Ann Arbor, as both an undergraduate and law student. I was in school in the turbulent years of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Neither the city nor I settled down much until I was in graduate school in the mid-‘70s. I practiced law in Detroit – in the city and suburbs – for over thirty years. In the parlance of the British Isles, I was a barrister for a decade or so. My practice evolved thereafter and I became a solicitor. My job, as I saw it, was problem solving. I helped get clients from where they were to where they wanted to be. Sometimes I helped them see where they ought to be. On a few occasions, I helped clients stay where they were, when the world around them was changing and pushing them to change with it.
