I have a long history with gods and mythology. I love to learn about the lore and cultures from my own culture and others worldwide. My Christian faith and Cameroonian heritage have always drawn me to read and research my spirituality and cosmologies.
We Love a Good Mystery
There are mysteries in this world we will never really understand or know. As an adult now but still interested in scriptures and branches of theology, my opinion on this subject varies from topic to topic but never entirely changes from that deep belief no matter how hard life tries to tear me down by its cruelty.
Gods create enigmas because many pantheons of gods in modern fiction contradict themselves. This profusion can seem surprising, but it also makes myths unique and captivating. In such a way, mythologies are full of exciting and exciting surprises and twists.
The idea of gods has been around since ancient times. Today, most gods symbolize more fantastic ideas like life, death, and fertility. Gods create mysteries because many pantheons of gods in modern fiction contradict themselves. In such a way, mythologies are full of exciting and exciting surprises and twists. This profusion can seem surprising, but it also makes myths unique and captivating. In Greek mythology, it is told that the Titans waged a 10-year war against the Gods called Titanomachy. The Titans lost, and the New Olympian Gods took over Thebes.
It has recently become common knowledge that the popularity of ancient mythology novels is on the rise. Particularly, over the last few decades, there has been a surge in interest in historical fiction novels set in these ancient times and tell stories about gods.
Now as you may know, I’m an avid reader and also an aspiring writer, so naturally this topic interested me and got me wondering- why were these books becoming so popular? Here are a few reasons why I was drawn to this topic
In society today there is simply too much material to choose from. You can find thousands of TV shows, games or writing styles for comics but sometimes we might want stories about myths and gods (hence the gaps). These texts let me escape reality with their seemingly impossible plots and provides alternate meanings for our own.
To Inspire Other Readers and Writers
I’ve endlessly enjoyed reading and watching various things that explore the multiple facets of mythology. I spent my childhood thinking gods actually existed, and as I learned more about them, they soon became one of my favorite topics to explore. I love reading about religions and looking at why so many people worldwide are captivated by these stories. So, writing a novel is a form of healing –- that’s what my writing process has been like.
Making the time because I am worth it; letting myself savor this piece of work or that one is what has given me some balance amidst significant life changes in recent years. It is fantastic to connect to a topic like this because it naturally spurs ideas for writing! My knowledge has helped me write stories and books that fascinated readers while also giving them insightful information on their religious beliefs.
For the Love of Literature
Despite the extensive literature on the gods, only a handful of books that deal correctly with all aspects of the subject have been published. That’s why I like to write about Gods and continue highlighting this topic.
Along with this, my favorite genre to read and write about is sword and sorcery. I get a thrill of excitement when I create worlds, sow chaos among mortals, and redeem those who stray from the true path.

Live. Love. Laugh.
