Tales from the Odyssey

A wonderful series of short stories about Odysseus’ troublesome journey home back to Ithaca after the Trojan War.  Wendy creates a magical world filled with unrequited love, enchantment, curses and a vivid array of gods and goddesses encountered by Odysseus and his men.

Greek Goddesses & nymphs

All that glitters is not gold.  In these tales, the women may be beautiful or had beauty taken from them and now their powers lay in bewitching or killing all who cross their path.  Wendy weaves several stories of revenge and despair through the eyes of Medusa, Circe, Calypso and the Sirens.

Greek Heroes

How did Heracles become immortal? How did Jason and the Argonauts steal the Golden Fleece? How did Perseus save Andromeda? Wendy tells these magical and mystical tales with lyrical language and beautiful imagery.  You will be spellbound from start to finish.
