I am a novelist and book reviewer. I set my historical fiction and mysteries during the period of the Trojan War and Hittite Empire.
As enjoyable background for the interested reader, I have posted history pieces about the life of this fascinating place and time—everything from the roles of women, mythology, recipes, and books for further research to who the Hittites were and whether there really was a Trojan War.
