My novel, Andromache's Story: What Really Happened in Troy, was recently reviewed by on Maria Karamitsos' Blog, along with two other Greek mythology retelling novels.
It's an honor to be in such good company with the other authors in the blog. (They both sound good, I've added them to my TBR list.)

Note: I was inspired to write this story because I felt Hector was the real hero of the Iliad, and his spunky wife is the only woman who is given lines to speak. I wondered what else she might have to say, and I thought she should have a book to tell her side of the saga. I hope you'll check it out!
Have you read these books?
I found this great site for book recommendations. They allow authors to post five book recommendations with a theme.
Though this was an intriguing idea (and it's always nice to get some more publicity!), it was also a fun challenge.
Which books should I recommend?
Being an avid reader as well as a writer, I’ve read an eclectic array of books, spanning biographies, historical fiction, mystery, fantasy, and romance (normal and paranormal).
When I thought about it, the books I love the best have stories with characters who are witty or have humorous points of view.
For example, in Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, it is Eleanor’s unique way of making her way in the world that makes what could be a sad story into a delightful one - one that gives the edges of your mouth an upward curl.
Check out what I’ve recommended at Shepherd.com. You might be surprised.
Thanks for reading!
