A Bit About Myself:
As a retired teacher, my passion is working with kids. I regularly conduct Medieval Writing Workshops for local elementary/middle schools and the Colorado Girl Scouts. It seems I'm not the only one who loves Medieval Times and the King Arthur Legend. The kids thoroughly enjoy writing their own medieval stories complete with dragons, wizards, unicorns, and knights!
Some of my favorite books, like "The Hobbit," "The Lord of the Rings," Golding's "Lord of the Flies" and "The Once and Future King" by T.H. White were all written to offer hope to a world embroiled in another world war. "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens illustrates how unselfish true love enables people to offer the supreme sacrifice to preserve that love, while Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment" shows how circumstances can cause people to do despicable acts. The one book that connects of all of these texts as well as a multitude of others is Joseph Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces." The journey of the hero, depicted by Campbell, is a universal theme that never dies out. And so, I write Quest stories that eventually will span time from Medieval times to Ancient Egypt to the island of Atlantis, so far!
I love to travel, and so my other job is with a major airline. My favorite trip was a two week visit to Egypt with my husband that included traveling by local train from one end of Egypt to the other.

This is an intriguing glimpse at King Arthur as he establishes his kingdom. He also catches his first sighting of his wife-to-be, Guinevere. This is a delightful tale, six pages worth, that gives you the flavor of the book it was extracted from. I like the writing style, clear and concise, but still medieval. It is written for pre-teens. I find myself needing to read Cheryl Carpinello’s Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend. Good thing it’s available!
