However, I cannot say what it is because it affected me deeply, so it will have to forever remain a mystery. Unless of course, the readers are able to figure it out. If this happens, please shhh!(less)

I also studied English literature in school and often the stories I read told of couples that felt immediate attractions, even if they tried to deny their feelings. So, besides my own hero and heroine, Arria and Garic, who experience an immediate attraction, I would probably mention Lancelot and Guenevere, Romeo and Juliet, Elizabeth and Darcy and Jamie and Claire from the Outlander series. These are all so good, it's hard for me to pick just one.(less)

Freya, Goddess of Love

On the Edge of Sunrise, my debut novel, is set in late ancient Rome. My hero, Garic, is a Frank, a Germanic barbarian warrior. In the early 5th century, the Franks believed in the Germanic/Nordic gods. One of the goddesses was Freya, goddess of love, but she also had a militaristic side to her and a connection to the dead. Some believed she led the Valkyries to the battlefields where she chose dea Read more of this blog post »
