Looking into the lives of Anatolian women: Judith Starkston, a historical novelist and researcher


Judith  Starkston

Judith Starkston as an historical novelist and researcher hands one a telescope to peer back into Anatolia’s past. In her novel, Hand of Fire, she tells about Trojan Women and their roles in Ancient Anatolia and Mycenean Greece, particularly about Briseis’s, the captive woman who sparked the bitter conflict between Achilles and Agamemnon in the Iliad. Besides this fascinating book, she is currently working on her next novel, an historical mystery with the Hittite Queen Puduhepa. On the first surviving peace treaty in history, Puduhepa pressed her seal beside her foe’s, Rameses II, but she didn’t realize until now that she was a sleuth.  If you would like to travel into Anatolia at the time of Late Bronze age through Judith’s eyes, you can find her books on Amazon and follow her writings at her web site:            www.judithstarkston.com
