My newest book is about the nine muses. The nine muses, goddesses in Greek mythology, each inspire a special talent.
According to Greek myth, these nine sisters rule over the arts and sciences. They are the deities of song, dance, and memory, who give the gift of creativity, wisdom, and insight to a fortunate few.
Polymnia is the goddess of hymns, who is often seen wearing a veil in her depictions. I imagined her to cast a spell over the mortals with her beauty. In my story, she has many admirers.
Erato is the goddess of love poetry. Based on her talent, I made her a hopeless romantic and popular with suitors as well.
Clio is the goddess of history, who carries with her a scroll. Based on that, I saw her as a meticulous note-taker, practical, and an analytical thinker. In my story, she becomes obsessed with board games and puzzles.
Melpomene is the goddess of tragedy, who wears a tragic mask. I imagined her as introspective and quiet.
Terpsichore is the goddess of dance. I imagined her dancing everywhere she went, and having fun learning new dance moves from the mortals.
Urania is the goddess of astronomy, who carries a globe. I wrote her as someone whose eyes are always searching the stars, and one who quickly joins the astronomy club in the mortal high school.
Thalia is the goddess of comedy, and keeps a shepherd’s staff. To me, she is the queen of funny (and punny) jokes.
Euterpe is the goddess of music. You won’t find her anywhere without her flute… which becomes a problem when Headmistress Ehtel confiscates it.
That leaves Calliope. Goddess of epic poetry. The ringleader. The chief of the muses. Zeus’s most troublesome child. In my story, she is feisty and outspoken. A rebel who refuses to do as she is told, but does as she feels.
I hope that you grab a copy of The Nine Muses 😊
