She's talking about the Golden Fleece, Trojans, Hittites and Atlantis!

Author takes an interesting look at the Golden Fleece, The Trojan War, and the lost civilization of Atlantis.
I am a writer of historical fiction/fantasy with Eagles and Dragons Publishing, trained as an historian and archaeologist.
For as long as I can remember I have loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Places are portals to the past and so I like nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting my imagination take over.
One day I came to the realization that it would be a great thing to combine two of my favourite things, history and creative writing, to make the past accessible, thought provoking and above all, entertaining. I have studied ancient and medieval history and archaeology, and creative writing since 1991 and obtained an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Masters from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. My studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.
I'm always interested in connecting with other history lovers, readers, writers and anyone who loves to create art.
So, drop me a comment or stop by my blog to connect around the virtual hearth fire.
