Welcome to Judith Starkston’s website. Her debut novel Hand of Fire, set during the Trojan War, is available September 2014 (Fireship Press). Enjoy reviews of Hand of Fire, book club questions, the event calendar and an excerpt. You’ll also find historical background about this fascinating place and time, book reviews of reads you don’t want to miss and other on-going information from the historical fiction community.
Sharon Kay Penman’s epic novel of the latter part of Richard the Lionheart’s life, A King’s Ransom, engages in some literary alchemy.
My favorites on the web this week: archaeology breaking out all over, mystery tomb in Macedonia, Bronze Age baby rattles, Parthenon marbles, mummies and Deb Swift on writing a deaf character in the 17th C
Book Launch of Hand of Fire at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore on September 10th. Join Judith Starkston in the celebration!
Our next AZ Historical Novel Society meeting will be September 20th from 1-4 pm. Email Judith for directions and details.
