New Critique Partner
Her name is Stephanie Thornton. She writes historical fiction. Like me. And her settings are ancient history, too, like mine. So we have a lot in common. She would time-travel to ancient Egypt if she could and I'd be right there with her!
Her first manuscript is about Hatshepsut, the first and only female Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. She is currently hard at work on manuscript #2, and the main character is Theodora. A one time prostitute and actress who reaffirmed her Christianity and became Empress of the Byzantine Empire. This is the manuscript I will be critiquing for her. It sounds amazing!
Stephanie is also a high school history teacher, lives in Alaska, and had a recent encounter with a bear.
Check out her website and blog at www.stephanie-thornton.com.
BTW, Stephanie has 347 followers on her website. I'm definitely going to ask her how in the world she did that!
