You're here for fantasy & nonfiction.
Stories, poetry, and slow-travel adventures that engage, engross, and ignite emotion.
Stories that explore ancient places, alternate histories, and feminine powers.
Stories impossible to put down—even well past midnight!
Me too. That’s why I write them.
It’s hard to remember a time when I didn’t write.
My work blends a deep love of history, alternate timelines, and suspense with a healthy dose of myth and magic.
I’m inspired by stories, obsessed with details, and driven by characters and the world around them.
I'm a storyteller who draws inspiration from my French and Polish roots. I’ve spent much of my life exploring spirituality, layers of religion, and passages to ancient myths. Mostly, though, I explore the lives of the great Sibyl prophetesses.
Over the past ten years, I’ve unearthed Sibylline stories, histories, folk art, and the secrets of their landscapes.
Here, you'll unearth those stories for yourself.
Me kädmen anina il'ati—In the name of the Great Mother.
"An edge-of-your-seat historical thriller . . . The Da Vinci Code and Indian Jones with a healthy dose of Sibylline mythology mixed in."
"Exquisitely well-detailed . . . it serves as an intriguing walk through history. From start to finish, it will capture your attention until the last page is turned."
“I completely fell in love. . . Rivers does a brilliant job of enveloping the reader into the complete experience.”
Get ready to delve further into mystery and mysticism!
I have just launched the new Pilgrimages For The Weary Storyteller series. These slow travel guides through France's Loire Valley (and soon, beyond) are designed as brief pilgrimage that can be done in a single day. They include a series of writing prompts to use as journal tools, creative inspiration, or contemplative questions to draw out the stories you long to tell.
As I make my slow pilgrimage through the world, a certain sense of beautiful mystery seems to gather and grow.
