Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Women are often depicted as subservient to men in Ancient Greek myths. But that doesn’t always make sense, especially when you remember details, like how the story of Medusa was about her gaining a way to protect herself. Her face became the emblem of women’s shelters around the world.
The old myths and stories were mostly translated by men, so they shaped the translation to fit the way they saw the world. I think it’s time we see the same stories from an empowered female perspective.
What do you read for pleasure?
Fanfictions. And then more fanfictions. Honestly I never get tired of the same good tropes, and I love just picking characters and reading a novel's worth of stories about them.
