Praise for Oracle of the Song: “Astonishing, in every sense of the word… I can't wait for the third book - it will take me that long to catch my breath and recover from my envy.” —Peter S. Beagle, Author of The Last Unicorn, The Innkeeper’s Song, Summerlong & many others “Marvelously readable, The Oracle of the Song, is a mesmerizing story of a time when the divine and mortal were entwined around a common fate.” —Angeliki A. Pateli, Archeologist Msc. “Everything I love about Greek myths—wild monsters, power-crazed gods, and breathtaking adventures—come to life... A terrific story well told! I loved it.” —Vicky Alvear Shecter, Author of Cleopatra’s Moon, Curses and Smoke & many others Determined to save her best friend Sophia, Thaleia—the young Oracle of Delphi—descends into the Underworld, a forbidden land from which none escape. But does Sophia want to be saved? If so, why does she trick Thaleia to drink from the River of Forgetfulness, so she no longer knows the reason she descended into Hades’ Realm? Thaleia prays for the gods’ help. Instead of their guidance, she encounters Hades’ rage and Athena’s jealous fury. Always, the gods defy her. Beneath fire skies, Thaleia outwits Typhon, a hundred-headed sea monster; challenges the Graeae—three hags who share one eye and one tooth between them and risks being turned to stone with the gaze of Medusa, a snake-haired priestess. Ultimately, all paths lead to Hades Palace and a box hidden beneath Queen Persephone’s bed. Can Thaleia stop blaming the gods for her friend’s death? Can she let honesty and courage guide her? Can she bring Sophia home?

Praise for Night of Pan:

"Having read Night of Pan, I'd certainly read anything with Gail Strickland's name on it."
~Peter S. Beagle, Author of The Last Unicorn, A Fine and Private Place, and The Innkeeper’s Song

"A stirring and evocative journey."
~Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Author of The Hand of Buddha and Dead Love

"A new twist on the Joan of Arc story, and the feminist aspect is interesting."
~Stephen Davenport, The Athenian School

The slaughter of the Spartan Three Hundred at Thermopylae, Greece 480 BCE—when King Leonidas tried to stop the Persian army with only his elite guard—is well known. But just what did King Xerxes do after he defeated the Greeks?

Fifteen-year-old Thaleia is haunted by visions: roofs dripping blood, Athens burning. She tries to convince her best friend and all the villagers that she’s not crazy. The gods do speak to her.

And the gods have plans for this girl.

When Xerxes’ army of a million Persians marches straight to the mountain village Delphi to claim the Temple of Apollo’s treasures and sacred power, Thaleia’s gift may be her people’s last line of defense.

Her destiny may be to save Greece...
...but is one girl strong enough to stop an entire army?

"Poetic prose at its resurrectional best... A deeply terrestrial work, sprouting with relevant meanings for our time."
~Thanasis Maskaleris, recipient of “Commander of the Order of the Phoenix” title (a distinguished honor from the Republic of Greece)

Allan's Island gathering a chance for the girls to get together again - Southern Gazette

Published on August 25, 2016. A group of women gathered on Allan’s Island, Lamaline on Saturday for the fourth Island Girls Reunion. Pictured are RoseMarie Foote, Bert Fleming, Kate Edwards, Marie Fitzpatrick, Ann Lambe, Ann Flannigan, Lillian Maddigan, Geraldine Strang, Roxann Bonnell, Madonna Walsh, Angela Thornhill, Judy Collins, Barb King, Stella Kirby, Mary Stapleton, Gail... According to organizer Florence Walsh of Lord’s Cove, the event was packed with activities from morning until after supper. The women who attended the reunion varied in ages from those in their forties to a woman in her late seventies, Walsh said. The day started with a car parade, led by the fire department, from the school through Lamaline north, across the causeway to the Island. The women then held a balloon release in the cemetery in memory of loved ones. We sat around and had some icebreaker games,” Walsh said. The initial game not only got people opening up about their lives but drew many laughs, she said. After they all had that done, I asked them to count the number of sheets they had and how ever many sheets they had, they had to tell that many things about themselves,” Walsh explained. During the day the women shared memories of growing up on Allan’s Island. “Back then all age groups played together,” she said. We’d play there all day and we’d pick wrinkles and say, ‘Snail, snail come out of your hole. If not we’ll burn your mother as black as coal,” Walsh laughed. Each attendee received a canvas shoulder bag with their name embroidered on it and a saying that sums up well the camaraderie the women were sharing: “Side by side, or miles apart, friends are forever close to your heart. Island Girls Reunion. Among the mementoes in the bag were wool socks imprinted with Island Girls and “a little bag of happiness. “In that bag I had put a mint because you are worth a mint, a candy heart to remind you that love is all around you, a marble just in case you lose yours, a nickel so you can never say you’re broke, a string to hold onto when things start to fall... The day also included a picnic at the lighthouse, where the women lit a fire, boiled the kettle. Source: www.southerngazette.ca
