Iâ€™m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer ofÂ books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from
times long past.Â
Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with theÂ Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and thoseÂ Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers
set in these worlds.

When 15-year-old Rosa agrees to help the ghost of King Tut find his lost queen Hesena, she doesn’t count on falling for him.
Once back inÂ Ancient Egypt, Rosa discovers that finding Hesena if not all she must do and isÂ not as easy as she thought it would be, even though she carries part of theÂ lost queen in her soul. She must also keep out of the reach of the living
Horemhebâ€”who crosses mortal boundaries using Seth’s evil magicâ€”if she is toÂ stay alive to make it backÂ Â home.
AÂ shoutÂ fromÂ behindÂ makesÂ meÂ turn.Â TutÂ isÂ runningÂ afterÂ me,Â butÂ itÂ isÂ notÂ hisÂ voiceÂ thatÂ ignitesÂ theÂ terrorÂ inÂ myÂ heart.Â ItÂ isÂ mineÂ screamingÂ toÂ holdÂ onÂ toÂ life.
â€œNo.Â No.Â NO!â€
TheÂ forceÂ ofÂ theÂ explosionÂ flingsÂ meÂ throughÂ theÂ airÂ likeÂ aÂ ragÂ doll.Â ByÂ theÂ timeÂ IÂ pickÂ myÂ headÂ upÂ aÂ denseÂ cloudÂ ofÂ dustÂ engulfsÂ me.Â TooÂ lateÂ IÂ coverÂ myÂ face.
Iâ€™mÂ choking,Â canâ€™tÂ breathe,Â canâ€™tÂ see!Â Iâ€™mÂ dying!
ArmsÂ encircleÂ myÂ chestÂ pullingÂ meÂ backwards.Â MyÂ legsÂ scrapeÂ painfullyÂ acrossÂ theÂ debris-Â coveredÂ graniteÂ floor.Â AnotherÂ pairÂ ofÂ armsÂ liftsÂ myÂ legs.Â Floating.Â Thatâ€™sÂ whatÂ itâ€™sÂ like.Â DyingÂ isÂ likeÂ floatingÂ onÂ air.
MyÂ bodyÂ touchesÂ solidÂ ground.Â Voices,Â whispersÂ really,Â penetrateÂ myÂ cloggedÂ brain.Â IÂ hopeÂ thisÂ isÂ heaven.
WithoutÂ warning,Â IÂ startÂ coughingÂ andÂ gagging.Â MyÂ brainÂ screamsÂ atÂ me.Â â€œFight!Â Breathe!â€
