I am a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother. I love to read, cook and play “World of Warcraft”.
I love Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Myths, and Legends. Through in some murder, suspense, and gratuitous sex and there you have a good read.
I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1948. We moved to Pennsylvania when I was 3 and I graduated Farrell High School in 1966.
I took Business Management at Kent State, Graphic Arts at Bellevue University, and I am studying, History, Classical Literature and Government at Hillsdale University.
My favorite quote is below;
“The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof shit detector.” – Ernst Hemingway.
“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”
I also have a Fantastic Site where I blog, share other’s great blogs, & Showcase other Poets & Authors.
I show women who are strong and try to change the world. Some fantasy, some legend, and some myth.
I showcased a story by the author Aimee Mallory—-“The Falls of Fate”. At the end of this book of stories.
Lillith became fixed as a seducer of men. Later she would become the partner of Satan and queen of the realm of the forces of evil.
Lillith was held responsible for populating the world with evil.
evil, the answer lies in her insubordination to her husband Adam. It is her independence from Adam, her position beyond the control of a male, that makes her “evil.”
In her demon form, Lillith is a frightening and threatening creature. She personifies lust. If you ask, she became the power women exercise over men.
She represents the deeper, darker fear men have of women and female sexuality.
But then, there are always two sides to every story. This is where I begin. Lillith was not an evil woman, she was misunderstood because she was ahead of her time.
One of my Favorite Authors;
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Born in Hartford, Connecticut, The United States July 03, 1860
Died August 17, 1935
Genre Fiction, Sociology, Poetry
Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prominent American sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, which she wrote after a severe bout of post-partum depression.
Here are two of my book-covers, and a painting that I sold, to a private buyer” Cave Of Death ” that I did on canvas. These three works are all under Roberta Shepard and are “one of a kind” works.because I promised the buyer that it would be a one of a kind.
