Sleeping With The Gods

Author: Jean Wong

A charming peek at one woman’s take on the Greek Gods, twenty-first century style. Stories told with imagination, wit and passion.

A passionate debut story collection…creative reinventions…mammoth legends…the collection’s Greek-god gambit allows each story to take a good dark turn.

                                                                         —Kirkus Review

Sleeping with the Gods romps through the unexpected intersection of everyday life and myth–but not the myths you learned in school. Each god or goddess has a contemporary persona: Mercury is a beach-combing gigolo in Kauai; Venus is a hitchhiker along the Columbia River Gorge;

 Hestia is a caretaking android. Whether youre familiar with the classic tales or discovering the gods for the first time, youll find these divine

encounters engaging, humorous, haunting, sexy, and savvy, with deep insights into human nature.

                                                 —Terry Ehret, author of Lucky Break and Night Sky Journey

    My name is Patrice Garrett. I'm a writer harboring the soul of a cowgirl. I have a penchant for the Old West. I believe, as do many others, that I lived another life and experienced the California Gold Rush first hand. My first two novels reflect my connection with the era.
