Frequently Asked Questions
The Amberleigh Chronicles are the mythic stories of Gwendolyn, healer and animal friend, who is caught between the worlds of Elf-kind and human-kind. Troubled by forces both without and within, she must maintain balance in a restless world. Eventually these events will lead her to the throne of Amberleigh, but she is not particularly happy about it. They also detail her compatriots, Rolfe - her consort, BrightEyes - her Pixie friend, Claude - a Calabresian Swordmaster, Ogluszyc - a gentle giant, and Beaumarais - a Thal from Ocher Flats.Top

These stories are heroic in the Classical sense; if one is ready to read Bulfinch's Mythology, one is well able to read and understand The Chronicles. They deal with all the mythological elements, including a search for truth and justice, deeper understanding of the natural and magie worlds, and of the nature and abilities of homo sapiens and other hominid races. They deal with enduring emotions of honesty, compassion, devotion to a higher ideal, as well as jealousy, hatred, and intolerance, many of the same emotional challenges that we face today.
As in all mythic stories, there is Violence, but less than one would see on the history channel. There is Magie, nature-based magical energies. There are adult situations dealing with situational ethics and male-female romantic interactions, similar to what one would find in any Mythology book.Top
