Me and My Books


L.H. Nicole is a seasoned Pastry Chef at the happiest place on earth and a life long fairytale (Disney and Grimm) lover. She believes in love at first sight, is addicted to 80’s & 90’s cartoons and anything that can capture her ADD-way-to-overactive-imagination. Joan Lowery Nixon and L.J. Smith were the first authors she became addicted to and who inspired her to steal away whenever she could to read and write.You can keep up with me, and all my news and adventures on FacebookTumblrPinterestBlogger and Legendary Saga website.





And now for a little more knowledge abut my series the LEGENDARY SAGA:

 

Legendary is a story I've had in head for years. The idea came to me during an english project about you guessed it- Arthurian legends. My teacher was against web research and allowed us to use textbooks only. I discovered different ways to spell the characters names, including Mordred. There are five spelling variations that I found, and I chose to use one that is much less known: Mordrid. Other names I kept the same, and some I changed for the sake of the story. My reason for changing the names and/or spellings is this: my Knights of the Round Table, their enemies and allies are very different from what people are used to. I don't want to offend Arthurian purists and the "Arthurian legend/history." Legendary is pure fiction, straight from my imagination. I took some liberties with the different stories and incarnations. I changed the things I didn't like to the way I wanted them to be. I changed things to make them my own creation and tell you a new story. Hence Legendary's summary "everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legends was wrong."

Now there is always more in the works outside just what has been done. For me that's 3 new projects all clamoring for my attention. One is in a far more ready state than the others, but all of them are very dear to me and I am trying my hardest to make sure I do them justice and give them the attention they deserve. 
Now what are those ideas you ask...............well if you haven't guessed I'm a fan of the stories and legends I heard growing up. The same stories I would let my mind wonder into at every chance possible and explore. I find that of the many characters that resonate with me the strongest are heroes from the past, but that want a story in modern time. Who am I to deny such fun adventures for all involved?
That said the 3 projects I am most focused on are these:

THE VENATORS OF ORION SERIES: A combo project of Greek myths, monsters, and gods blended with immortality, Rome, love across time and the Borgia's!

A femme version of the Musketeers in modern times full of adventure, spies, thieves, snark, romance, and world ending evil plots.......No, No, NO! You girls cannot break into the Habsburg Palace! I don't care how skilled you are Amaris!!! Oh boy -_-

A new take on Achilles and a star-crossed love that has plaid out over and over agin

Now that you understand the chaos I'm facing maybe you want to see a little bit of inspiration/teasers from those books?
For my Venators series, if you've ever visited my main site and gone exploring you will have found even more detail of this series AND the first chapter (unedited!) ready for your consumption!

As for my Achilles project, well that one is still very much in it's infancy stages and I don't have a whole lot to show on that one yet, but I will! And when I do you can bet I'll have something for you all to see and enjoy ;P
