Author has written 2 stories for Historical.

It's been a while since I was here, but I'm going to take up the mantle I had before, I think.

My specialty is Trojan War cycle-related, and Apollo-related, Greek myth. I love regency romances, so if you happen to find a good one here please feel free to send it my way.

There's a chance that I might be branching out from there, although at this juncture I'm not sure whether or not I will.

I was renowned when I was more active in these parts for being a pretty good beta-reader, and although I've taken what I was working on then down, I'm certainly going to see if I can rewrite most of what I was working on back then. So if you do need a beta, feel free to drop me a line.


Stories

Troia -- The beginnings of the prologue are up, and it's July 23rd, 2010. Troia is, as you can probably imagine, a retelling of the Trojan War. Although eventually it will end up being a Cassandra story, I'm making a conscious effort to weave in a lot of the myths and history surrounding the Trojan Cycle (as you'll no doubt notice). The Prologue will take us until Cassandra's birth, although I can't guarantee what happens after that. Chapter 6 addresses the Oath of Tyndareus. Please read, enjoy, and review!

When the Hands Meet at Twelve -- A Regency Murder Mystery is upon us! Maybe I've just been reading too much Heyer lately. I don't know. Either way, I'm revamping this story--which I began many years ago, and then lost my copy of--hopefully bigger, better, brighter, and more mysterious than the last time I attempted to make progress with it.

Troia reviews
She learned many things that day. She learned of a love so strong that she felt her heart break in her chest, of a hate so deeply trenched that thousands would die for the strength of it. But what she remembered from it all was a name: Cassandra.
