About the Author

At the current time, I am a gymnastics coach and a writer of many types of fiction. I have a BA in English language and literature from The University of Chicago. I am half-American and half-Scottish. I spent many summers as a girl in Scotland, and moved to England at 16 where I finished high school at Bedford High School. My first novel, The Last Immortal, I wrote more than twenty years ago. It is the first of six novels in the "Seeds of a Fallen Empire" series that was finished in 2000 and finally published for kindle in 2010-2014 after many years of trying the traditional publishing route. I have also written one fantasy novel, Curse of the Dragon Kings, which was written in 1997 and self-published in 2010. My other interests are gymnastics, ballet, and hiking. I trained in gymnastics for 9 years intensively and am still bouncing around on trampolines from time to time. I teach gymnastics and love the sport very much. I also love ballet and have trained off and on in ballet. My childhoods in Scotland in the summers instilled a deep love of nature and history in my spirit as well. As a writer, I started out writing mostly science fiction and also fantasy as I so much loved J.R.R. Tolkien as a girl. I also really enjoy historical fiction set in the days of ancient Rome, (and Egypt.) I am now writing more romantic and historical short stories. As a reader, I enjoy reading English literature, literary fiction, historical fiction, Russian literature, fantasy on occasion, selective science fiction, and good writing in any genre. I also like to read books on political science, international relations, foreign policy, geography, astronomy, and ancient history (Egypt, Sumeria, Rome, Greece). Another interest I have is in foreign languages and cultures. I have traveled to many countries in Europe, and learned French, German, Russian, and Japanese at University. My German speaking ability has waned, but I still enjoy watching foreign films and trying to read French and Russian.

Very good book, though it takes a few chapters to really get into the story. I've noticed some bad reviews here, but I don't think a one star rating is fair. I read this novel years ago, and enjoyed it, but also read through to the end of the series recently. The more you read, the better it gets. Not for everybody, but I enjoyed it.

I really wanted this to be good, but it was nothing like the description. Long passages telling us (instead of showing) about characters whose relevance is questionable, some unrelated passages from unidentified perspectives, some SF tropes and buzzwords thrown in for color, but after 100 pages, about a third of the book, nothing much happens and there is really no hint that there is an actual story in the offering, merely a series of perhaps loosely related vignettes. Given the indifferent, pedestrian prose that badly needs an editor, and this simply isn't worth the effort. Deleted from my Nook.

Get ready to expand your mind! This thoughtful and provocative novel explores themes of time and space travel (in fascinating scientific detail that makes it seem tantalizingly possible); the origin of life in the Universe; evolution; immortality and soul; free will, destiny, and mind control; politics, power, and greed; corruption and cruelty; virtue, honor, and compassion; destruction, loss, and despair; love and hope. The story weaves together pieces of history spanning all of space and time (and beyond) to set the scene for the next 5 books in the series, and though this book has a story line that is able to stand alone, I am definitely excited to keep reading and see what happens next!

May take a few chapters to get into the story, but it's an interesting read.

Sorry. It lost me in the very beginning pages by overtalking ad nauseum about the characters. Way too much wordage and unneeded details. Sorry.
