Published by: Vestal Valley Press

You’ve heard it was the pomegranate.
Those six juicy, ruby seeds, staining my lips and fingers. Sealing my fate. Damning me.
Well, maybe so.
But that’s not entirely the truth.
It’s surprising to me how it is possible to tell a story within just 20 pages. This is a snapshot into the Persephone myth; an intriguing retelling of the story of the pomegranate seeds. You may know it, or you may not – it makes no difference to the enjoyment of the story, in my opinion.
Within these scant pages, the author has imbued personality and naivete into the character of Persephone, and has, at the same time, done a decent job of describing the depth of relationship between her and Hades.
Well worth a peek.

Born and raised in Colorado, Samantha MacLeod has lived in every time zone in the US, and London. She has a bachelor’s degree from Colby College and an M.A. from the University of Chicago; yes, the U. of C. really is where fun comes to die.
Samantha lives with her husband and two small children in the woods of southern Maine. When she’s not shoveling snow or writing steamy sex scenes, Samantha can be found teaching college composition and philosophy to undergraduates who have no idea she leads a double life as an erotica author.
