About this author

A former catalogue librarian with two graduate degrees, Lorinda J. Taylor was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and worked in several different academic libraries before returning to the place of her birth, where she now lives. She has written fantasy and science fiction for years but has only recently begun to self-publish. To this point, she has published one novella, a two-volume novel, and four volumes of a series entitled The Labors of Ki'shto'ba Huge Head (v.1: The War of The Stolen Mother, v.2: The Storm-Wing, v.3: The Valley of Thorns, and v.4: Beneath the Mountain of Heavy Fear). Her goal is to write compelling fiction that delivers an emotional impact and leaves her readers with something to think about at the end of each story. ...more

The Storm-Wing by Lorinda J. Taylor
"This is the second volume in Ms. Taylor's epic (in every sense of the word!) retelling of the Hercules myths. Perhaps retelling is not quite the right word here. Perhaps resetting would be better. What Ms. Taylor has done, and done very well with..." Read more of this review »

This story is meant to prepare you for the longer works to come by setting up the premise and the scene. As such, it’s successful, but it’s rather disappointing as a work that stands alone.
