Athena Underwater by Melody Norton
Book one in a five-book series, Athena Underwater, is the debut work of writer, mother, and Marine Corps veteran, Melody Norton. With each book titled after a goddess, we start with Athena. The greek goddess of wisdom, war, inspiration, the arts, justice, and more.
Within these pages, you will find a poetic memoir weaved with the magic of myth and fairytale. Included are stories rooted in history, lore, and lineage. Travel through the pages on an exploration through discovery, growth, new beginnings, and the continuous cycles of healing while living in the shadows of grief and trauma.
Above all, Athena Underwater is a tribute to the matriarchy, sisterhood, kinship, mother earth, & a fighting spirit. Athena Underwater has been written and curated specially to be a refuge for those who seek the hope of a new beginning.
As a domestic violence survivor and advocate for the importance of mental health and integrative healing, Melody hopes to inspire others to communicate their stories, sound their voice, and claim their place in the world. With the upcoming launch of her creative writing course, Word Warriors Academy, she looks forward to coaching others on following a creative path and harnessing their most inspired selves.
