Hi! I'm Helen R. Davis. I'm an award-winning Savant author, poet, and the editor of the 2015/16 Savant Poetry Anthology, RUNNING FROM THE PACK (Savant, pending release April 2016). 

It is my honor to also become a certified Savant proofreader. I'm personally interested in historical fiction of all kinds, but have a soft spot for the ancient and medieval world. I especially like helping to bring to life lively characters and civilizations often ignored in the history books. 

My own first novel EVITA: MY LIFE (Booksurge 2009) placed Eva Peron in the center of Argentine history, politics, and culture. Recently, I gave similar voice to Cleopatra, in my award-winning CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED (Savant 2015). In it, Cleopatra, Caesar, Antony and Octavian (Augustus Caesar) appear in historical Egyptian, Roman and Greek historical context, but at the end of the work—the first in what I hope will be the CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED Series—I subtly change from history to alternative history, another keen interest of mine. In the sequels, CLEOPATRA VICTORIOUS will tell the tale of Cleopatra and Antony's rule of the Ancient Middle East after their victory (instead of their historical death) at Actium, and finally in CLEOPATRA MAGNIFICA, the tale of Cleopatra's Great-Granddaughter in context of the new Christian religion, all told in a timeline in which Cleopatra's fictional descendants will rule Rome, Egypt, and parts of Africa. 

I am also interested in fantasy, science fiction, and works by younger authors in the millennial generation in hope of giving a powerful, positive, literary voice. Looking forward to being your proofreader…
