About

Busy and temperamental, that would define me. I tend to  take on more than I can chew and I'm the queen of procrastination. I guess I need the pressure of the deadline to get started. But once I'm there I always finish, so don't expect me to stop writing, even if you are begging for it.
I am writing mostly for myself  (I need to practice my written english), and for my teenagers to have extra reasons to complain about me . Not that they are needing any. But you are welcome to like it, review it, comment and complain too. 
Allergies warning: my work is 100% free from highschool, dead guys, 6/8/10  packs, drooling girls, cheerleaders, same gender/family sex, good hearted players, arranged marriage, standard ending/plot.
Possible trace of hot guys/girls, soft hot scenes, nasty fight scenes, romantic stuff.
Ingredients: History, science, humor, sword fight, logic, past/future mix, war, plotting, warriors, twisted villains.
Proportions may vary.
Now you are warned!

If you're looking for a good read during the holidays, go through my reading list and you won't be disappointed. For those who are interested in the context of TVH, I recommend the excellent Brunanburh by MJ Porter. And by the way, chapter 17 of VT is up! Enjoy!
Hi everyone and Happy Christmas!

The weather is terrible today here in Lahinch, Ireland. There's an Atlantic storm on and I can see the big waves from my window. I hope you've got a better forecast!
Enjoy your holidays!

@KoreanNoona Feisty in those times had a different meaning when it came to women. Hitting him and shouting abuse would have been seen as unwomanly and completely out of place. In the sagas, women were executed for that. A woman showed her courage in keeping her composure, and protesting vigorously albeit politely. Wheeping and begging would have showed weakness, and been met with contempt. She holds her head high, expresses her disapproval through sarcasm, and bends to his will only to protect her people. And still she threatens him with consequences.
Would you have the nerve to do this when facing a blood covered Viking warrior?
Her behavior is rewarded with his respect and admiration. In his eyes, it makes her a woman of pride and honor, worthy of being his bride.
