Meet the Author
read. I was playing with the idea of writing a fantasy story peppered with historical facts. The history of the Huns always fascinated me - they were my ancestors. I played with the idea for a while, but the final push to start writing Ilona the Hun's story came from my daughter. One day, she got sick of listening to me whining about not having any new books to read, “For the love of God! Stop whining, sit down and write one!”
I love using my imagination when creating a story. I ask the question “What if…” and the story, characters and scenes come to live.
My Ilona the Hun trilogy is based on my Hungarian heritage and working in the medical field all my life. I combined the story with fantasy elements such as magical healing, time travel, ancient secrets and mystery with a romantic love story.
