The threads connecting Crete to Scotland

Historical Fiction eBooks asked me to write a short post about my series, and so I did. Reincarnation, Goddess Athene as The Morrigan, and the intriguing similarities–connections between Bronze Age Crete and historical Scotland.

I hope you’ll check out my thoughts, (click here) and while you’re there, take a peek at some of the stellar work by the other authors in this intrepid group!

Swimming in the Rainbow (Coming Soon)

Following a devastating attack on her home, young Zoë is torn from her solitary, fantasy-filled life in pastoral Germany.

With help from an extraordinary man, she flees into the Mediterranean archipelago, barely a step ahead of the soldiers pursuing her.

Magic and realism collide as she discovers why she is so important, and how the world has been wounded by the loss of dream and myth.
