Welcome To My Website
The Trojan War is usually seen as a men’s war, but there are many women and girls involved in the stories, and I wanted to write about them; hence my Girls of the Trojan War trilogy. I’m glad to say that the first two volumes are out, beautifully published by Silver Wood Books of Bristol.
What must it have been like to be the daughter of the beautiful and infamous Helen of Troy? After Helen elopes with Paris, Hermione is sent to stay with her uncle Agamemnon and her aunt Clytemnestra in Mycenae. On her journey there she meets Pyrrhus, son of the great Achilles, a golden haired boy with a cheeky grin. Agamemnon and Menelaus plan to invade Troy, seize back Helen and take Troy’s gold. But before that can happen, there will be a terrible event in the family.
‘Thrilling, original and romantic, just what an intelligent girl would love.’Amanda Craig
The Burning Towers
Eirene is a slave girl, who serves the princess Cassandra in Troy. Cassandra has been cursed by the god Apollo to make prophesies that no-one believes. The war in Troy drags on, with the two champions, Achilles and Hector, pitted against each other. But, Eirene is a favourite of the goddess Athene, and this will ultimately help her escape the terrible fate which will overwhelm Troy
Chosen by Caroline Sanderson as one of the Bookseller’s Independent Authors of the Month: ‘…a well researched and thoroughly engrossing read.’
The third volume in the series, which I hope will be out later this year, tells the story of Electra, daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. Clytemnestra and her lover murder Agamemnon on his return from the war, and Electra and her brother Orestes must take their revenge.
