in 355 CE in the aftermath of Constantine’s reign, Hypatia of
Alexandria lived in a collapsing Roman Empire, a world where
obedience to religious authorities trumped science, where reason and
logic threatened the new world order. It was a world on the edge of
the Dark Ages, a world deciding the question of science verses
religion, freedom verses orthodoxy, tolerance verses hate.
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

Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-HeartÂ to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in theseÂ worlds-Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventureÂ through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.
Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; inÂ 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England,Â Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve alsoÂ traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be toÂ Greece and Italy.
- When did you start writing and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become as author?
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.
- Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us about it?
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.
- What is your favorite writing snack?
- If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose and why? What food would you serve?
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.
- How do you relax, or what do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?
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.
- Whatâ€™s your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?
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?
- What do you fear most?
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.
- What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book some day?
Ask yourself these questions:
What type of story do you want to write?
Who are you writing for?
How will your characters/plot appeal to readers?
Why do you want to write?
