I turn wickedly strong tea into historical fantasy fiction in which the gods, heroes, and myths of Ancient Greece come to life as you’ve never seen them before. When I’m not creating worlds or killing off characters, I wrangle honeybees and travel to places near and far alongside a wooly monster named Finn McSpool.

Coming January 2019!!
“My destiny, my goal, my ambition was to be a priestess. Instead I was forced to become a wife. Even worse, I became the wife of man with no goals, no ambition. A man who wanted destiny to fall on his lap like a nymph who’d indulged in too much of Dionysus’s bounty. Worse still, I was already in love with another man.”
Set in the Greco-Roman world introduced in the Osteria Chronicles, Domna is a six-part serialized novel that tells the story of Sofia Domna, a woman whose destiny is abruptly changed when she reprimands the wrong man.
As Sofia’s life moves through the trials of a forced marriage, motherhood, and yearning temptation, she learns that destiny isn’t given; it’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.
If you like the political intrigue, adventure, and love triangles of historical fiction by Philippa Gregory and Bernard Cornwell, and the mythological world-building of fantasy fiction by Madeline Miller and Simon Scarrow, you’ll love Domna.
Myths and heroes may be reborn, but the whims of the gods never change.
Perfect for fans of mythological adventure and romance like Clash of the Titans, as well as historical fantasy fiction by Madeline Miller, S.J.A. Turney, Mary Renault, and Bernard Cornwell, the Osteria Chronicles are a captivating fantasy series in which the myths, gods, and heroes of Ancient Greece come to life as you’ve never seen them before.
