Welcome to my latest blog series Myths and Storytelling!

I have explored ancient myths and stories my whole life. I was blessed by an Irish grandmother who told me many stories when I was a child. I am convinced that the Irish are one of the Great Storytellers. I have always had visions of storytellers. In my mind they would sit around the fireplace or a pot bellied stove telling tales to all who would listen to them. Captain Gregory in The Mystery of Devil’s Gulch series is one of those kind of storytellers. Oral tales are part of the history of all the books we have in our libraries or homes around the world. Stories are the fabric our existence. Myths make up the tapestry of our collective consciousness.

Myths have been around since the beginning of time. Shared personal experiences have been used as stories both as oral history, paintings and eventually writing. The magic of story transcends age and time. Our society has books, audio books, movies, television, videos and YouTube just to mention a few ways that we all communicate our stories.

Thanks to storytelling bits and pieces have come to us from so many ancient cultures such as Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Egyptian, Chinese, Mayan and Babylonian history just to mention a few. Legends abound and have been shared from all cultures and walks of life. Stories from Australia, South America, India, Nepal, Ireland, Spain, Italy and Africa all seem to have similar themes for their people.

It fascinates me at how many cultures that are so different can share the same general ancient stories that are passed on through time.

In this series I would like to explore some of the great storytellers and myths that I love. Be prepared that this blog will be written through the lens of my perspective as a lover of writing, books and story. There are thousands of years filled with humankind stories, but I will attempt to explore some of the more significant ones as we travel through the next few blogs of this series.

I also want to mention that our online writing workshops are now up and ready to be downloaded along with new books that will be available in 2018. Welcome to Synchronicity Publishing and thank you for reading my ramblings on myths and storytelling.
