Historical fiction novelist and a secondary teacher, Luciana Cavallaro, likes to meander between contemporary life to the realms of mythology and history. Luciana has always been interested in Mythology and Ancient History but her passion wasn’t realised until seeing the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. From then on, she was inspired to write Historical Fantasy.
She has spent many lessons promoting literature and the merits of ancient history. Today, you will still find Luciana in the classroom, teaching ancient history and promoting literature. To keep up-to-date with her ramblings, ahem, that is meaningful discourse, subscribe to her mailing list at

This is the final leg of the journey Evan and his intrepid adventurers embark on. The images I have chosen for this short PPT wasn’t easy.

A Goddess' Curse (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM
Description: Hera, Queen of the Gods, is the most powerful goddess on Mount Olympos. Beautiful, sensual, and merciless, she is a goddess renowned for her jealous rages and for inflicting horrors on hapless victims. She’s the protector of women, virtue, family and marriage yet her husband, Zeus, has had countless affairs. She puts up with it. Why? Is she really malicious or a product of circumstance?
Boxed in a Curse (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: She was created by the gods as a gift to humanity. Then there was the urn. Pandora, the first woman on Earth, was endowed with many gifts: beauty, intelligence, domesticity, and curiosity. She was at once lover, sympathiser and nurturer. Zeus presented an urn as her wedding dowry. Neither she nor her husband, Epimethos knew what it contained inside, and Hermes, the Messenger, warned them never to open it.
The Curse of Troy (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Helen of Troy! The most beautiful woman in the world. Her face launched a thousand ships. Betrayal, greed and power unfold in this compelling Greek tragedy. It was a war renowned throughout times gone by as the greatest and bloodiest of them all. It was a romance between two star-crossed lovers. Helen, Queen of Sparta, home-wrecker and whore, flees with her lover Paris, Prince of Troy… That’s the story known to history. But is this all true? History is told by the victors, and facts can be changed to twist the truth. Is it possible Helen of Sparta never went to Troy? Could she be a scapegoat in a devious plan and organised by the power hungry Agamemnon? Perhaps. This is Helen’s story in her words, as told to a wandering historian.
Aphrodite's Curse (Literature & Fiction)
2 chapters   —   updated Dec 20, 2012 09:41PM

Aihebholo-oria Okonoboh
“THE HOMECOMING is the face of reality. (A literary approach to the social re-engineering of a decadent society)

It was a two-fold finding - a home and a son - and a time for happy family reunion and laughter. Life went on normal in the genteel old town and Ekoyata Egbe was glad to return home to Iyala. And disappointed he was. For he was confronted by unsightly community in the clutches of corruption and superstition.
In a moment too soon, Ekoyata found it hard to believe that his father, Egbe, was a member of a caucus and could give him as a ransom for his image. Also revealed was the top secret of the willful neglect of Iyala because the strong caucus benefited from confusion, with a long history of assassinations. Until he was warned about his honesty of purpose, Ekoyata did not know that he had taken the central stage in the fight and campaign against the caucus. Was he also going to be the next victim of assassination?

It was the beginning of a misery that would sit Ekoyata on he keg of peril... with the thrill of romance... adventure... and keen justice. Would daring to accept the help of a handsome stranger named Okojie prevent the caucus from finding his corpse? ....”
