The "Standard of Ur" from ancient Mesopotamia

05 October 2009

A book is born


Today is the official release date of Like Mayflies in a Stream, my third book and (woohoo!) first novel!

For those new to my blog, Like Mayflies in a Stream takes place in ancient Mesopotamia in the world's first city, Uruk, currently ruled by a tyrant. The protagonist, a priestess of Inanna, risks everything in her quest to save her friends and family. Mayflies was inspired by the "Epic of Gilgamesh," the world's first known story.

You can order Mayflies from your local bookstore or find it online at Amazon.com in hardcover and trade paperback and at Barnes & Noble in hardcover and trade paperback.

Thanks, THERESE and CHARLES. Funny—I don't feel any different from how I felt yesterday, before I was a published novelist.
