My goal is to be a storyteller and to carry on the myths and legends of old. That is why I picked the Arthurian legends as a basis for my novels. These were the first stories of monsters and magic, where all our stories began. I researched countless myths from England, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Germany and Russia. I even delved into African mythology for the residents of Togo, an island just off Avalon where a former slave ship landed. This allowed me to bring their unique mythology into this island of magic. I want to show that all of our myths and stories each have something similar in them. It shows how more alike we are than different. (less)
