Greek mythology, both in art and literature, believed mythological beings once inhabited the Earth. God-like creatures, people worshipped them as deities.

With thousands of artifacts pointing to the possibility of their existence, I wonder if mythics did indeed exist at one time. At one time, there were dinosaurs. Chinese history proclaims an emperor long dead had kept dragons.

So why not mythological beings?

In my modern mythic romances, I give Greek history a little twist and go out on a limb. A few of my characters are born as sexy shape-shifting Centaurs, descended from ancient Greece. Like immigrants everywhere, their ancestors left their home country to find a new life elsewhere. They settled in the Boronda Forest.

Before I started writing this series my knowledge of Greek mythology was limited to what I learned in school. To educate myself, I dug into research and crammed my head with countless facts. The intrinsic belief held for these beings fascinated me to no end.

And let’s face it—who wouldn’t want to meet a hot Centaur or sexy Wood Nymph? If you could meet a mythological creature, what (or who) would it be and why?

Remedy Maker, Book 1 of The Centaurs series

Man by day, Centaur by night, Rhycious is a remedy maker who needs his own healing.

He's the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and posttraumatic stress disorder has broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Then a direct order from the queen to investigate an uprising forces him out of his secluded cabin at the edge of the forest.

Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph who works as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector.

Environmental pollution in the aquifer stream that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is slowly killing her. Resigned to the fact she will not live long, she sets out to discover the mysterious disappearance of her sister. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn't push his expectations on her, only his healing nature.

When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal turn their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout.

Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?

Troll-y Yours, Book 2 of The Centaurs series


Determined to forge a better life, Ella launches her new business with high hopes—until a sexy Centaur bumps into her and throws her life off course. Voted “Most Eligible Bachelor in Boronda”, Aleksander shakes up her world and tilts her in more ways than one.


Years of warfare and countless bedroom encounters have stolen Kempor Aleksander’s luster for life. He never expects to rediscover his zeal in the small, redheaded form of Ella the Troll, who fires his blood hotter than the deepest caverns in the forest.


But as trouble lingers in their midst—and edges ever closer—Alek and Ella spiral into troubled terrain. Turning to each other, the pair face down dangers that run impenetrably deep in their mythological world. But will the two lovers discover a passion that runs even deeper?

  5. I would love to meet a fairy. Not the little Tinkerbell pixies but one of the regal, gorgeous Fae.

    1. Forgot the email.


  6. A dragon, my favorite mythological creature. I know I'd probably make a tasty snack but they are just so cool.

    And I couldn't agree with you more; if dinosaurs existed why not anything else? Just because no physical evidence has been found there must be some reason people believed these creatures and people existed.
