Meet the Author

I have spent most of my working life as an engineer of one sort or another (broadcast engineer, software engineer) and people who know that side of me are surprised when they learn about the writing side. I like science and engineering because I like to know how things work, and I like the arts because I like to know how people work.It took me 50 years to graduate from college, because I kept getting distracted by life, but I finally earned a BA and MS in Computer Science. Having accomplished that, I started writing a novel, which turned into a trilogy. I don't know why I needed that degree to write, at last, the book that I always knew was in me trying to get out. Maybe I just needed to be old enough.

    Very good

    Could have done without the sex scenes, but thought provoking and beautiful settings.

    Read

    I read all three of these books during a week of rain. The almost 2000 pages kept me enthralled. The cultures and people of these stories are so well writen. The depth and bredth of the people. I was spellbound. Do yourself a favor read this and share it.

    It was good.

    It was good, I admit it, but not to the point where I would give it a perfect score. I liked the world and the characters in it. There were moments of suspense and drama, but very few were intense. The romance felt very free and there some mild 'scenes' in it. It was an interesting read with a lot of wisdom stuff in it, but I expected something more in it. It was still good though.

    A great book

    This was such a pleasure to stumble across. It is a great read and the best proof was that it was about women warriors but even though Im a guy it kept me riveted! If you like stories about celtic style warriors, you will like. Heck, regardless of what you read, you will enjoy! And to the reviewer who whined about the few sexual encouters, make sure you dont read about any Spartans then cause that will really upset you! Wuss...
    Kudos to the author. And I even wrote her to say thanks for such an enjoyable book!

    Amazing Trilogy

    This Trilogy is a fascinating story, not just of a long ago society, but a story of love, power, and human relationships. I have never read any book that caused me so much inner-reflection on my own beliefs. Challenging content but easy reading, I would recommend this to all who wish to make a journey into understanding humankind.

    I finished reading it, which I guess says something. The writing

    I finished reading it, which I guess says something. The writing style is a bit amateurish which is probably why I finished it, it was just easy to read. What I found it lacked was building a connection to the characters, I just didn't really care about them. The plot also kinda dead ended for me, which is probably more to do with it being a trilogy, but I'm not invested enough to read the other two books.

    more from this reviewer

    Interesting and disappointing

    The book is a hodgepoge of story lines and I haven't a clue as to which of them might win. There is a mysterious stranger from the North who may have been raised by wolves, a wise, young girl from the South who takes care of the stranger and advises the mother superior of the empire, a young woman who was a sex slave in her former home, a female empire to protect from food seeking men, some mystical ceremonies that advance women to their next levels of development, lesbian love encounters - yikes! The author seemed to struggle with choosing which story to tell and as a result, started to explore all of them. A good editor would have been a great help to the author who writes well enough and just needs some focus.

    I loved this book!   It was so refreshing to read about strong female characters in a place where gay or straight or bi just isn't an issue.  The characters are well developed.  Her descriptions are evocative without being overly verbose.  I couldn't get enough of it.  If you like gay and lesbian fiction, please do yourself a favor and read this.  If you are a homophobic nutbag like the previous reviewer, grow up.  I meant that last sentence respectfully of course.  To the author, thank you for writing such a lovely trilogy.

    So glad I stumbled across this book. I thought it was wonderfull

    So glad I stumbled across this book. I thought it was wonderfully written, and a beautiful story! And yes there are lesbians in the book and some mild sex scenes, but if you can look past that, it's a great read! If you can't, just don't read it.
