Is There a Cure for Dreams?

Is There A Cure For Dreams?

Cold

love-flies-away

I remember years ago, sitting with a group of lovely new mothers in a “Mommy and Me” class, as we talked about the changes that motherhood had brought into our lives. Most of us were first-timers at this parenthood thing and we got to talking about intimacy. Namely, how to maintain it with our husbands when there was a chubby, adorable, needy, often screaming new family member who was drinking our blood and sucking up all of our attention.

We were each telling funny stories about aborted attempts at romance, when I said something to the effect of, “Here we are, having made this beautiful creature with the love of our lives, and we’ve no time or energy to make any more love.”

I was trying to be funny and encouraging, but one of the women looked up from her new babe and said, “Not everyone is fortunate enough to have…

In Tune With Elizabeth

I love Elizabeth and Robert Dudley.

History Rocks

Elizabeth I’s love of music and dance is well documented. She was the last Tudor monarch, the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and inherited a love of both art forms from her parents. Her early life went from Princess to being declared illegitimate after her mother’s execution. At one point, her sister Mary had her placed in The Tower on charges of treason. Her childhood friend Robert Dudley was imprisoned during the same period, and later released. The two had much in common.

Princess Elizabeth was well educated and she and Dudley, who served as a companion to her brother, Prince Edward became friends at an early age. Fate found them entangled as Dudley’s father, the Duke of Northumberland, was involved in the unsuccessful attempt to place Lady Jane Grey on the English throne. This led to the Duke’s conviction of high treason and beheading at The Tower of London in 1553.

Report from the Battle of Chickamauga

Confessions from Chickamauga: “Taking Chattanooga is as important as taking Richmond.”

From the Emerging Civil War site.

Emerging Civil War

Emerging Civil War is pleased to welcome guest author Hunter S. Jones

Although I’d visited the Chickamauga Park my entire life, I knew next to nothing about the actual battle. When I started this journey, I had no idea what a corps was or a brigade, even though I have an undergrad degree in History. I learned enough to get me through the war eras, pass the exams and write the papers, and move to the parts of history I enjoy: the fashion stories, the love stories, the epidemics. There’s nothing like a plague to capture one’s imagination and change the course of world history. The further I ventured into the study of the Battle of Chickamauga, the more intriguing it became. This wasn’t about Union and Confederate Armies; these are the stories of 150,000 American soldiers. Chickamauga is the saga of broken hearts and shattered dreams which happened on…

Characters in Motion with Hunter S. Jones

Layered Pages

Deb HunterPHOENIX RISING by HUNTER S. JONES

What are the common movements your characters make?

For PHOENIX RISING, I wanted to write a something different about the Anne Boleyn story. As an American, I knew there was no way I could compete with UK historians or fiction authors, so I looked for a way to take a very English story and giving it an American slant.

PHOENIX RISING is the story of the last hour of Anne Boleyn’s life, as told by an astrology chart. The chart is explained by the contemporary American descendant of King Henry VIII’s physician, Lady Bliant, who drew the chart for the king in order to calculate the best time for the queen’s demise. The chart is broken down into the movement of various characters at court, based on the interpretation of the chart and the planetary aspects at that moment in time, 19 May 1536.
