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.

Final Version, Part One, Echo & Narcissus

End of chapter 2: Urana sits in the moonlight, gazing down at Clear Blue Lake….  Could any place be lovelier? She wonders about Calypso and Cephisus and suddenly, out of nowhere, the words of the wild man below the falls flashes through her mind: “Beware, daughter of Poseidon, lest the evil Titans destroy you.” 
She shivers, shaking the thought away. She had never met the man before—nor could she imagine that he’d ever seen her. “Don’t put your trust in something that doesn’t meet your eyes,” her Grandmother Europa often said. “Believe only in what you see.”
Still, one small fact about the encounter with the Prophet from Kabera haunts Urana: How could he have known that she was the daughter of Poseidon if they’d never met before?”
