Â I was thrilled to be one of nine authors contracted by The Wild Rose Press, to each write a story about one of the nine Greek muses for an anthology ‘Song Of The Muses’.Â Each story was released gradually through the summer of 2008 as an E Book, and then as one of three stories in a series of three paperbacks.
My muse was Terpsichore, muse of dance, and I sent her to 5th century Wales, where she falls heavily for a handsome young warrior, Myrddin, who has a destiny he is not yet aware of.Â Â They’re both Â in for a few surprises before the story ends.Â Â
This was a ‘fun’ story to write, and pure fantasy.Â Â I drew a lot on the mountains and wild places of my native Wales when I was writing it – and the waterfalls.Â Terpsichore just loves waterfalls!
When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough.Â She is unaware there is a hidden agenda.Â Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost.
But Myrddin is promised to another.Â His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save.Â Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way.Â Â Â
Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever.Â Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved?Â Is there nothing she can do to save him?Â Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.
