In Classical mythology, Circe is a powerful immortal enchantress. The daughter of Helios the sun-god, she lives alone on the mystical island of Aeaea, weaving her tapestries and her spells, attended by phantom servants. Woe betide any man who sets foot on her isle, for the poor unfortunate will be turned into an animal and forced to grovel at Circe's feet...
Only one man has managed to best her, with the help of the god Hermes and the plant moly. Whisper the name of Odysseus with care, for Circe does not like reminders of her failure - even though she bore Odysseus two sons.
The Daughters of Circe are an international group of writers from all walks of life who have gathered together to support one another in our forays into the world of publishing. Visit our homepage at www.daughtersofcirce.com or our yahoo groups, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/daughters_of_circe/
