In my YA fantasy, No More Goddesses, not only does the film icon Audrey Hepburn play an important part in my protagonist Jordan’s life but another individual from Egyptian mythology pops up: Hathor.
When writing this novel I thought it would be fun to have a goddess of romance to mess with Jordan and her friends. I wanted someone exotic and different then the usual Greek mythological characters. I decided to choose one from Egyptian mythology as my brother-in-law Eihab is an Egyptian national and my sister is studying to be an Egyptologist.

**One thing I learned is not to push doing this so soon after a funeral. It is almost too much for anyone, including me, to bear.
So I've been numb and feel as if I've been walking in a fog. I also haven't been wanting to write. I know though that Mom wouldn't like that. She was my biggest cheerleader.
