About this author

Amalia Dillin began as a Biology major before taking Latin and falling in love with old heroes and older gods. After that, she couldn't stop writing about them, with the occasional break for more contemporary subjects. She lives in upstate New York with her husband, and dreams of the day when she will own goats--to pull her chariot through the sky, of course.

Amalia is the author of the Fate of the Gods trilogy, and the new Orc Saga, beginning with HONOR AMONG ORCS.

Twenty-seven.
I complained about dishes in the sink and socks on the floor, and even though he never came, I imagined Donar lying next to me in my too empty bed, while I stared at the ceiling and talked.

Eric was a resident, and if I had thought he was never home before, I understood now what it really meant to be the wife of a doctor. I tried not to hate it. I tried Read more of this blog post »

Amalia Dillin and 2 other people liked Katie Stout's review of Helen of Sparta:
Helen of Sparta by Amalia Carosella
"Oooo I beta'ed this one a few years ago, and it's SOLID. Amalia really knows her mythology (and her history), and that comes through very clearly. I loved reading about Helen's journey.

Also umm...Theseus. There's lots of wonderful Theseus. Be prep..." Read more of this review »

“Wait." He paused, and she held out a hand to him. His thick fingers engulfed her tapering ones; his skin was warm and dry, and scorched her. "Before we go pick up poor Lieutenant Illyan again..."

He took her in his arms, and they kissed, for the first time, for a long time.

"Oh," she muttered after. "Perhaps that was a mistake. It hurts so much when you stop."

"Well, let me..." his hand stroked her hair, gently, then desperately wrapped itself in a shimmering coil; they kissed again.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Shards of Honour

“He shook his head and looked away, as if he was giving himself a firm lecture only he could here.”
Roni Loren, Fall into You

“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won't. Habit is persistence in practice.”
Octavia E. Butler, Bloodchild and Other Stories
