Dear Reader,

HAND OF FIRE grew from my love of ancient Greeks and from a psychological puzzle posed by a Trojan War tale. Achilles, a half-immortal warrior, takes a woman captive after destroying her city and menfolk — hardly a heartwarming courtship. Yet the story shows a loving connection between them, but no explanation.

Achilles questions the war; he's no Stockholm Syndrome brainwasher. The answer lay deeper. I created a young healing priestess, designated as future queen, defending her city, an ally of Troy, against both divine anger and invading Greeks. In her lay the seeds for their relationship and for a tale of hope and resiliency.

"Suspenseful, tragic, surprising and sexy" —Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Crown.
