Down to Earth Romance

Gunnar, the hero of HER IMMORTAL VIKING, comes from Alfheim, the place in Norse mythology between heaven and earth, in the west beyond the seas. Though my story is contemporary and written wholly from my imagination, the gods, Light Elves, Dwarves, and demi-gods in the tale were inspired by ancient lore.

As I wrote my novella, I imagined what Alfheim (Elf Land) might look like and painted word images on the pages. On one of my trips to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, I photographed scenes that brought my setting to life.

Enjoy my vision of Alfheim.
