A Pleasure to Meet You!

Psst! Since you’re already here, you might as well have a peek at my other Posts, where you will find excerpts from my breakout novel. The links are over there————>

Welcome friends! I’m glad you have come for a visit! Pull up a seat, get comfy, and stay a while. Allow me to introduce myself; My name is Amarissa Amber Cale, but you can just call me Amma… that’s what all my friends call me.

I was born in Toronto, Canada, where I grew up and now live in Northern Ontario, in a remote little town. I have lived on either Coast of Canada, and have had the pleasure of savouring both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. I loved them both, so please don’t make me choose!

However, I must say that I did like the smaller-city feel of Halifax and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, on the Atlantic Seaboard. The people are second to none when you are talking friendly! I felt at home with everyone I met, and the seafood is the best I have ever had!

Consider yourself forewarned; I love history, the older a place, item, era, or language is, the more rapt my attention. Thus far, my favourite era in history is the Bronze Age. I loved reading (all 12) translations of Homer’s ‘Iliad’ that I now own, and have read every morsel of information about the Bronze Age Trojans I have gotten my hands on over the last eight years.

That’s enough about my interests for now! Perhaps over time we will have the opportunity to chat. That would be nice…  I would love to have the chance to meet you too. I promise not to hog all the conversation!

Live, love, laugh, then love some more! = My motto.

I am a writer/research analyst, specialising in Ancient History. I have two novels in the works at the moment. (When writer’s block halts one, it’s always good to have another to jump into!)

I also have plans for a series about the Bronze Age, geared toward educating today’s youth, with an entertaining twist! I enjoy making new friends and have a very open opinion on how people should live their lives:

1) They should always be themselves, and accept that others should live their own lives as they see fit.
2) Everyone has rights, opinions, and values… I respect them all, and hope my friends respect mine as well, even if our opinions differ.
3) Live, love, laugh, then love some more!
4) Smile, and enjoy your life, your family and friends… Life is too unpredictable not to live it as fully as we can. = My philosophy
That’s pretty much me in a nutshell. I am who I am, and what you see is what you get!

This will be my welcome page, where you can freely ask questions about why I chose to write about a Pre-Historic Era that we know so little about. You will never know — If you do not ask!

Please feel free to leave any comments in the form below. If you wish to remain ‘Anonymous’ then that is up to you.

If you choose to tell me who you are… Fantastic! Either way, it is a pleasure to meet you, and I look forward to interacting with you! Have a fabulous day/evening.

      Thank you so much for the kind words! I love ancient history (is it obvious?) and love writing the stuff. Still working on the book .. I keep going like I am and I may challenge Homer with word-counts! Plenty to do, without an Editor. I just do what I love to do, and may the cards fall where they will.
      Cheers,
      Amma

    Hey Amarissa, I am a fellow writer/blogger and you just visited my blog to comment on my review of the Kobo E-reader. I have been looking at your blog, and it looks great–I am a fan of history and classical literature myself.

      Thank you, Yilin! Looks like we will get along very well then! I really did appreciate your Blog on the Kobo… Trying to get information from anyone is almost impossible. I’m actually picking one up tomorrow, after reading your review! Thanks again!
      Cheers,
      Amma

      Hi Larry! The site admiration is mutual! Thank you for the compliment! I will be sure to set aside a copy of my book for you!

      Ireland? Wow! If I have any questions about the history of Ireland, I am certain I will know who to ask now!

      Cheers, Amma

    Gorgeous pics Amma. Have you seen them up close and personal, or are they from someone else. Either way, they are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Eva! You are always kind! The photos I share, unless I credit otherwise, come from a friend of mine, who passed away just over a year ago. He travelled extensively and spent a few years in Turkey alone. Jim spent two months in the Anatolian region, just so he could make sure I had all the detailed photos he could send me. I have literally thousands of photos from him! Some almost appear to be identical, but the angle is slightly different. Jim was a marvellous friend who would do anything for someone else, friend or stranger. The world is a sadder place without him, but I am thankful to have these photos to remember his warm spirit by.

      One day I will travel there; I have to, the place has become close to my heart for me not to!

      Cheers, Amma
