Author has written 1 story for Labyrinth.

Hello!

My name is Hera, which is a nom de plume, of course. I love anything pertaining to ancient Greece... it's culture, history, mythology, etc, so I took my name from the epitaph "Hera of the ox eyes" which is found in Homer's The Iliad.

I am currently trying my hand at a story of my own, which is quite intimidating. I haven't written in over 10 years now.

I chose to start with a Laby fic because I am a huge fan of Labyrinth and all things David Bowie. I think I should probably seek counseling because it is a full blown addiction. I can't even put a rough number on how many times I've seen the movie, nor can I guesstimate how many times I've seen Bowie's biography special. It is a love that dates back to the early eighties when I was only knee-high to a grasshopper.

I am a lazy creature by nature, so I may not always be prompt with the updates. I have a husband, a Bipolar son, 3 dogs, several cats, a fat hamster, a house and a yard to keep up with. You can possibly understand why writing crack is going to take a backburner at times.

I tend to work better when I feel appreciated, so please do keep stoking the fires of my ego with your wonderful reviews... :)
