Author has written 24 stories for Fantasy, Fantasy, Life, Love, Friendship, General, Thriller, War, Romance, Supernatural, Horror, Fable, and Mystery.

I'm a dedicated novelist, poet and blogger. I've inventing stories for as long as I can remember and writing them down since before I learnt to read.

I've published one book, Aigaion Girl. It was originally posted on Fictionpress and the readership and reviews I received on this site were what kept me writing - and editing, once the book was finished. Aigaion Girl is available all over the world in paperback and for kindle, in no small part because of the Fictionpress community.

I write mostly fiction and mainly for an adult (as in mature, not X-rated) audience, but I will on occasion write a children's story or non-fiction piece. A lot of my stories have silly, improbable romances in them, because, well, who doesn't love a silly, improbable romance?

I miss things that died out long before I was born, such as silent films, chivalry, clean air and the London coffee-house. In an attempt to revive the latter, I started Devereaux Court, a multi-author blog where writers of all ages, genres and levels of experience can gather, bounce ideas around and shamelessly plug their work. Please feel free to check it out.

Please check out my official website, AthenaMcCormick.com.
