over 40 years, Hypatia stood between the dark ages and the light of
classical philosophy, arts, and sciences. Though none of her books
survived the aggressive book burnings of religious zealots, her
legacy remains that of one of the greatest scientists of all
is her fascinating true story.
Iâ€™ve been writing for a long time; I wrote my first poem in eighth grade. My college years and my teaching career solidified my love of the ancient world and the times of King Arthur. It wasnâ€™t until I retired from teaching literature and writing that I had the time to devote to my own tales which had roamed around in my head for years.
Yes and yes! I have started a new five book series Feathers of the Phoenix, and the first book The Atlantean Horse. Rose from Sons of the Sphinx will share the spotlight in this series with her cousin Jerome. Both of them have special abilities that they are struggling to live with and still be teenagers. The adventure revolves around an old prophecy that says one day when the five feathers of the Phoenix bird are reunited with a white stallion and one-who-survivedâ€”both of which were saved from destruction by Poseidon when he destroyed Atlantisâ€”the lost island will rise again long enough for all three to return to their home. It will then disappear forever. Naturally there are those who want to be at the rising in order to steal the treasures rumored to be in that lost city.
I would love to sit with young Guinevere from my Guinevere trilogy, but Iâ€™m a picky eater. Thereâ€™s very little food from Medieval times that I would eat.
I love spending time with our grandkids. We two boys, ages 9 & 4, and two girls, ages 2 & 1. They are a lively bunch and keep us running.
Traveling. I want to visit those places in the ancient and medieval worldsâ€”whose literature I taught–that Iâ€™ve read and written about. Weâ€™ve done Egypt, Wales, England, Iceland, but have a lot more to explore. Every other year we pick a destination and plan a 3-week trip. Due for the next one in 2018. Wonder where weâ€™ll go?
Losing those I care for most. Weâ€™ve had a lot of loses in our family in the past, and just in the last nine months, we have said goodbye to three.
