Author has written 9 stories for Alexander.

Hi Everyone!

As a new writer to the site, I hope you will be merciful to my stories. I truly believe history has been effective in erasing the unique relationship between Hephaestion and Alexander. They are the untold love story. But this site rejuvenates the little we know and adds a little excitement and romance to it all. History doesn't have to own everything! I look forward to reading your reviews - good or bad.

Take Care

P.S. I hope you enjoy the Pics of Alexander and Hephaestion taken from the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA. :)
