About the Author

Educated in geology and anthropology, writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in (bioarchaeology) anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, and kilts, Skhye loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction. Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so that every culture in her tales and every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible. And yes, she's "certifiably" geek.

"All I can say is wow. I can not imagine a way to describe this story. After running across Skhye Moncrief's web site and blog, I was sure that I would enjoy her writing and that it would bring something very unique and imaginative. I was not wrong! I know next to nothing about Greek mythology, but this book was full of it. I am not sure if the book contained actual Greek myths, or if the contents of this book are more Ms. Moncrief's imagination. Either way, this was a read that I will not soon forget!" ~Melissa; http://bookjunkiemelissa.blogspot.com/ [[[]]] Skhye Moncrief's installment, Ancient Musings, was a wonderful place to start. Here we have a highly imaginative story that incorporates so many aspects of Greek mythology. As much as I love mythology, I know so very little about it. This made Ancient Musings even more exciting to me as I read about different facets of those myths and legends. It is quite apparent Skhye Moncrief knows her stuff when it comes to penning an engrossing read. I look forward to more adventures in the Song of the Muses series. ~Kelley, Kwips&Kritiques http://ck2skwipsandkritiques.com/kelley/2009/ancientmusi- ngs_kelley.html [[[]]] This wasn't anything like I expected. It was better. I didn't know that padding around Hades could be so much fun from Chiron to the Elysian Fields to all the characters you'd plan to meet while our hero and heroine try to navigate their way without getting stuck there. Ms. Moncrief uses her knowledge to create a wonderful story. I can't wait to see what the other muses are up to in the rest of the series. ~Clover Autrey...
