Historical Fantasy Romances

I love history. I write historical fantasy romances.
Set in the Celtic Iron Age, 

And ancient Egypt

and even 60's Woodstock. 

What I find fascinating about these different times and cultures and what I feel connects all three is the art. Of course, Woodstock was all about music told stories and conveyed hopes and dreams. Music was key to the Celtic Culture also. Bards were part of the religion, included in the Druidic order. They didn’t have a written language so their history and beliefs survived through the oral tradition of songs and stories. Visual art was of utmost importance to the ancient Egyptians, there writing was based on it. They told stories and conveyed hopes and dreams with their art. The decorations on the tombs and the artistic amulets included in the mummy wrappings helped guide the dead to the afterlife. All three cultures, the Celts, the Egyptians, and the hippie culture had an emphasis on art that told stories, and shared hopes, and dreams. They embraced art with their minds, hearts, and souls. As someone at Woodstock would say, that turns me on, I dig it.
