Hello from Caroline!

Post by Storygirl96 » Thu March 1st, 2012, 1:34 pm


My name is Caroline and I recently finished a set of novels--Mystique and Shadow--about Helen of Troy's sister Klytemnestra!
Looking forward to getting to know all the great people on here and hopefully finding someone who's as obsessed with ancient Greece as I am! :)

Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger

Hi Caroline! You certainly joined at the right time, seeing as it's Trojan War month.
