One of my blog readers, “Dark Tales,” read my short story and gave shining 5.0 out of 5 stars in Amazon UK! Thank you so much! It’s such a great encouragement and supports out of the blue! I have quoted the delightful description of my book herein:
“A dreamy, engrossing short story well worth the read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 January 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed this short story from an author with a unique and characterful style that lends her prose an almost musical quality. Fans of folklore and mythology, in particular, will enjoy the host of references from a writer with a clear passion for fables and a talent for weaving them into her work.”

Mania from menos the spirit or the mind the elevation of the senses the cultivation of imaginations with 4 shades of madness: Religious fervor in Dionysians Poetic possession by the Muses Erotic obsession by Aphrodite Pythias’s inspiration from Apollo. Thus is spoken.
