I don’t want to say too much about myself. It’s the stories of people’s lives that matter.
I’m a linguist, by training, with a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics and a fascination for the older languages: Sumerian, Akkadian (Assyrian and Babylonian), which means I teach kids for a living, because of course there are no jobs in ancient linguistics… smiles. Hey, I knew that when I started.
I live quietly, with my partner and cat, in a small village you’ll never have heard of.
After my studies, I didn’t really think I’d ever have chance to do work on languages again. It’s been lovely to be able to do this decipherment, and even lovelier to found what I’ve found.

A beautiful story about love and choices. I gave only 4 stars because I did get a bit confused about all the charms omens and wards. Otherwise I really enjoyed the story. Thanks
