Dean Peake is a writer living and working in Utah. When he is not working a full time 'REAL' job, he spends time writing in a smokey dungeon that has books lining the dreary, wet walls. He has a wife and four kids, and THEY have too many cats.
Tony and Lora were on the vacation they'd been planning for ages. A trip to the Grand Canyon was supposed to patch things up between them and bring a new start to their failing marriage. But after arriving, Lora began to suspect there was more to this trip than a quiet get away for the couple. Tony seemed to have more in store. Before long, they were on a quest.
A Goddess' Curse: Hera's Story
on April 16, 2013
I just finished reading A Goddess Curse. I loved how the author placed the Goddess Hera in modern times, returning to earth after a very long self exile. Having her interviewed by a typical daytime chat fest show show host on a typical daytime talk show was a clever setting. The setting allowed Hera to be questioned about her history as a petty vengeful shrew and gave her the chance to set the record straight, which she does. It was particularly interesting how she compared the gods history of petty squabbles amongst themselves with current events going on in the world today, from politics to war around the world. This short story was a very clever way to make readers give some thought to that old addage: 'The more things change, the more things stay the same'. I felt the author, Luciana Cavallaro, ended her short story on a fairly upbeat note when Hera tells her host that we're not doing so bad, despite how things may seem. I highly recommend this short story to everyone.
