My favourite genre is historical fiction. I'm a huge fan of civilizations indigenous to the Americas such as the Mayans, Aztecs, and Incas. I'm also passionate about activism for Native American rights.

I aspire to write quality historical fiction that is accurate and rich in detail. I'm very passionate about all cultures that are indigenous to the Americas. Native Americans need better representation in all forms of media and people need to know what their societies were like before Europeans came. I love the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas too and hope my writing will help people realize how truly amazing these societies were. Though my preference is to write historical fiction novels set in those time periods, I don't like to limit myself. I'll occasionally write about cultures from other parts of the world and also attempt poetry once in a while.

Goddess of Wisdom

I've spent my life searching for her,
sacrificing every comfort,
no riches could compare to her beauty,
there is no ocean deeper than her mind,
a mystical sea of forbidden knowledge,
her hair is a cascading wave,
she is Wisdom, omnipotent,
all I caught were the washed-up seashells,
her dark shadow escaped me
everything about her is shrouded by the night,
a mystery

When she entered my life I wondered how I'd ever lived without her,
my heart filled with joy and she became the vessel of my 3 AM thoughts,
the barer of my secrets,
I trusted her,
never thinking she'd destroy me,
I did not know that the worst demond hide behind angelic eyes,
how could I have known when she had always been veiled by darkness?

Her eyes were fierce obsidian,
her face regal as an ancient queen's,
she is Wisdom but she does not understand matters of the Heart,
so I've forgiven her treachery,
will she forgive my weakness or will she slip away?
With the haunting beauty that can only belong to the night.

    This is great! I love Greek, Norse, Roman, and Egyptian mythology! I just love how you portray the goddess Athena, because it's just so accurate. I've always had an interest in the religions of said cultures, but I love the Renaissance era in England! :)

    So, you're another history fan? Me, too! My favorite ancient civilizations would have to be either Hellenistic Greece, the Aztec Empire, or feudal Europe. I think it's really cool that you're into ancient history as well!
