Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.

Rage - Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus' son Achilles,

murderous, doomed, that cost the Achaeans countless losses,

hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,

great fighter's souls, but made their bodies carrion,

feasts for the dogs and birds,

and the will of Zeus was moving towards its end.

Begin, Muse, when the two first broke and clashed,

Agamemnon lord of men and brilliant Achilles.

Iliad, Book 1

It's really tricky to know what to write in here; it reminds me of really bad writers block.

I suppose the bio is to help the readers get to know the reader as a person, so here's a little about me. I love reading, cooking, swimming and sailing - in that order of preference. While I can make really, really good chocolate brownies but I get a bit stuck when it comes to pasta and rice unless I have very detailed instructions. My memory for names, and directions, is absolutely dire and I'm always too nervous to ask someone's name in case it offends them that I haven't remembered it. This leads to some rather interesting situations in which I can end up talking to someone fairly regularly for a month and not have a clue what they're called!

I'm British in nationality and hence I use British spellings in my writing. I also like tea - tea's good.

The Holly Crown reviews
Men have dreamed of immortality and everlasting youth since the beginning of time. Yet for Ralph Raord, these gifts prove to be more of a curse than a blessing, especially when the world seems fit to erupt in blood and fire as long hidden secrets emerge.
