Women buried with weapons ranged in age from between 10 and 45 years old, and were buried with all manner of horse-gear and weaponry, from quivers, arrows and bows to spears and battle-axes. The evidence suggests that Greek legends of horse-riding Amazon warrior-women had its roots in a real culture of nomadic horse-tamers, where the domestication of the horse and the use of smaller, compact bows meant that men and women could ride and fight together.

So perhaps the Amazons — or their historical counterparts — really did once ride the plains and train for war. And this is where my journey as an author of historical fiction began.
MIDORI | PROGRAM NOTES
I wanted to bring together the historical evidence for the Amazons with their myths and legends — to use fiction as a way to bridge the gap between myth, literature and archaeology, and to get an insight into what it must have been like to be an Amazon queen. For the Most Beautiful — the first book in the Golden Apple trilogy — was her debut novel and retells the story of the siege of Troy. Her second, For the Winner , is a brilliant reimagining of the myth of Atalanta and the legend of Jason, the Argonauts and the search for the Golden Fleece.
For the Immortal recovers the legend of Hercules and the Amazons to bring the trilogy to a thrilling close. To find out more, visit www.
