Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
A writer seeking inspiration is visited by a girl who exerts a mysterious influence over him, bringing him success and good fortune, but who has unusual qualities.

About Wim Baren

About The Author, Wim Baren

Wim Baren is the author’s pen name. He lives a stone’s throw from Colonial Williamsburg, a place rich in history. He imagines himself a novelist. He’s written two full-length tales set in long-ago times. He’s also written a couple of short stories, and a bunch of short broadsheets about his creative writing experiences and insights. All of these are on Smashwords, and almost all of them are free.

As of the date of this writing, he’s feverishly inventing two new tales, also set in ancient times. One is a sequel to “The Crimson Emperor” – a fabulously romantic tale about Byzantium known by practically nobody – and another is an alternative history surrounding the Empress Theodora of Byzantium, a larger-than-life novel about the most powerful woman in the 6th century world at the time. That period of the Eastern Roman Empire did not lack excitement, to say the least…

So, with a spouse he dotes upon and a pleasant prospect over which his front entrance looks to stimulate his thoughts, he’s got a quiet and most enjoyable lifestyle. Would that everybody could enjoy the same, or more…

Thought and ideas are welcome, courteously done.

Review by: sgregory008 on July 13, 2018 :
Imaginative with Classical Greek richness and mythical fascination. The story drew me into a world of fact or fiction and I didn't want it to end. Well written with colorful (in the literary sense) vocabulary and intelligence.

Review by: Bobb B on Jan. 17, 2015 :
Not a big fan of stories that end up in the air, prefer a more defined ending.
Yes I know we can read what we want into it.
Would have given 2-1/2 stars if possible.
