My first love is, and always will be, historical romance. I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. Maybe I’d fit in better if I walked with Jane Austen or wore lace at my throat and jewels in my hair.

Our Ancient History contest issue is taking you back in time. We have stories about Pharaohs, soldiers, heroes, and a very special one by Genevieve Gavel, who wrote our winning story, Unkhamun Beauty.

As spring pokes its head from the barren ground, I hope these ancient love stories warm your heart and fill your soul.
