Amalia Carosella

About me

Amalia began as a Biology major before taking Latin and falling in love with old heroes and older gods. After that, she couldn’t stop writing about them, with the occasional break for more contemporary subjects. She graduated with a BA in Classical Studies as well as English from the University of North Dakota. A former bookseller and avid reader, her current interests focus primarily on the Age of Heroes and Bronze Age Greece, though anything Viking Age or earlier is likely to capture her attention. She maintains a blog relating to Classical Mythology and the Bronze Age at, or find her on twitter as @AmaliaCarosella. Today, she lives with her husband in Upstate New York, and dreams of the day she will own goats.
