Checking In!

Kalispera, Gentle Readers!

I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that yes, I'm still working on my novel(s) about Ancient Greece. Unfortunately I'm struggling with my Themistocles novel yet again, so there  hasn't been much to report.  :(

The good news is that gives me an excuse to go back and work another project of mine, which is about King Cleomenes I of Sparta. In it a man named Othryades (named after the soldier who stood his ground against the Argives at Thyrea ) tries to find out what really happened to the Agiad king after his apparent "suicide." The list of subjects is fairly long, as Cleomenes made a LOT of enemies in his lifetime due to his controversial policies at home and abroad. Most of the suspects however aren't foreigners. They're Spartans, and highly influential ones at that.  That makes Othryades' job harder and a lot more dangerous. What really happened to Cleomenes? You'll just have to read it to find out!

At any rate, thanks for your patience. Some of you have been following me for years and are probably doubtful any of these stories will ever be published/completed. But I assure you, I'm going to continue working hard and hopefully finish my novels soon!
