Meet the Author

William (Bill) Norris has been a professional writer since joining his local newspaper as an apprentice reporter at the age of 16. After working for a variety of newspapers in England and Africa, he was appointed Parliamentary Correspondent to the prestigious Times (of London) ten years later - one of the youngest ever to gain this position. He held the post for seven years, revolutionising the art of the "parliamentary sketch", then transferred to become Africa Correspondent for The Times, covering political events and wars in Biafra, Nigeria, Angola, the Congo, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

Growing tired of being shot at - this was long before the days of flak jackets, helmets and danger money for reporters, he moved to ITN as Political Correspondent in 1968, and also covered numerous overseas assignments including the Paris riots of that year.

After turning freelance in 1980, Norris moved to the United States where he worked under contract for The Times and other publications for 13 years.

    Day and Luc

    Luc: He is the son of Posedion, and is extremely talented. He posseses the ability to control water and speak to all of his father's creatures. His weapon of choice is a long sword of celestial bronze that he stole from a cyclops family who tried to kill him. Luc has a tall, lanky, build, with wirey muscles. His birth mother was the daughter of Aphrodite, and it shows in his features. His hair is jet black and shaggy, and his lips are full. Hus eyes are a piercing blue. Usually he wears a band tee, some worn jeans, converse, and a bead bracelet with a locket on it. He is 16. Day: She is the daughter of Aphrodite. She and Luc were both adopted by a normal human couple who couldn't have kids. Day has the powers of persuasion and the looks of her birth mother, with full pink lips, wild blonde curls, and round bllue eyes. Despite her beauty, she still developed anorexia nervosa and no one knows because she's been able to persuade them otherwise. Her weapons of choice are two twin imperial gold daggers she keeps strapped across her back. Day typically wears tight holey skinny jeans and a band tee, with a silver ring on her middle right finger. She is 15.
