Author has written 3 stories for King Arthur.
first off, I want to take a moment to thank you all- Yes, you authors, that you have created some of the most stunning stories around King Arthur and the Roundtable that I have had the pleasure of reading in some time. Special thanks to Ivory Novelist, Goody and Ashley A whose power of story telling have given me the courage to even imagine bringing some of my rumblings back onto the internet and believing (without ground or reason) that others might like it. And you, readers, if you have taken the care and time to read anything from me. I accpreciate it more than I could possibly say.
Maybe a word how this came to be: I have studied the Myths of King Arthur since I can remember (part time, later professionally) and writing about it was just a natural consequence. As usual other worries start to take over etc. Then the film came. And although the story is even mildly speaking... er, wrong, I hold the Bruckheimer's version still very high in my opinion.
I believe that there is a poetry in all the little things that surround us, and that the proper words can make this poetry a lifesaving experience: not to linger in darkness.
I am addicted to tea, coffee, cinnamon and good stories, celtic music, chocolate (I'm Swiss remember?).
References that build up my world:
Other obsessions and haunting powers: The LotR movies, cinematography in general, the sharp cheek bones of Orlando Bloom and Ioan Gruffud, as well as the emotional depth of their eyes and stance, my work for the veterans of WWII in the ETO (cf. www.wildbillguarnere.com, C.E.A.C., Fed. Franco-Brittanique), and therefore BoB of course, WildBill and Babe's memories shared in a Dutch Pub late in the night, Stephen Ambrose's call to remember the sacrifice of any soldier dying for my European liberty, my family history and the legacy of their fight... and finally living up to the expectations of my boldest dreams.
Note to the Stories and Poems to King Arthur: Some of the plot ideas and scenes are quite old and I have to thank Bruckheimer and Co. for rekindling the flame to reform them in completely different style, time and images.
Please keep in mind that I am not an Englisch Native, all corrections - whatever their nature - will be much appreciated and honoured.
