I love Mythology, always have, can't remember when I didn't. My name is Mariah Matthews. I live in the USA, and this blog is about a novel that I'm currently writing, working title: : MYTHS OF HELICON MOUNTAIN.

Know Your Protagonist: Who is ATALANTA?

In life there are things that can only be understood through personal experience and when this happens,  the experience colors the way we think and therefore, what we do.  -- In Part Three of Myths this becomes quite evident. Two men are dead because of Atalanta’s actions and the question hangs in the air: How does she redeem herself without someone finding out…and is this even possible?  Does redemption require confession?  Some folks think that it does and others let the gods handle it.   In the ancient myths , told by and large with the gods in mind, there is always a price for mortals to pay.
