Athena of Corinth and Alexandria is born

I can’t help myself. I love to have a cover up on my second screen that keeps me in touch with my characters.

My husband and I created the character Athena over the weekend. She’s the new woman for the second book of the Red Mirror Series. Elektra for one day, the name Athena better fits her intelligence and spirituality. She’s plenty sexy though, but different than Isis – less party girl and more ancient world woman executive.

Elektra will likely be the the third book which of the Egypt trilogy and set in Rome and Egypt and revolve around Antinous, the lover of Hadrian.

Athena is head priestess at the Temple of Aphrodite in Corinth and runs a sacred prostitution cult of 1,000 women. (That part is NOT fiction!)   Athena will travel to Alexandria Egypt during the Ptolemaic Period – exact year soon to be determined. My research is opening some new doors and I haven’t yet decided which one to enter. And so the next adventure has begun!

    What the heck was the old TV Sci-Fi program where you were warned not to touch the dial, that your TV had been taken over because you were entering the fifth dimension or Twilight Zone or something. Well, I suspect the choice of what you write will not be your own. Your characters have now taken over. Best you can do is just scribble, scribble, scribble as quickly as you can to get their stories down on paper. They’re a busy, impatient bunch! And one shouldn’t mess with Athena.

      I can hear the music and words in my mind….it must be the Twilight Zone. We didn’t have that much to watch in those days – particularly of the “paranormal genre.” Just want to get these query letters out and get a good agent for the Red Mirror Series which means I can get back to writing. Yeah don’t mess with Athena. She runs the whole show there in Corinth – all 1,000 sacred prostitutes. The Ancient World’s first woman executive!
