  1. Until my father-in-law Russ Wallace started talking about writing the Zenobia Book Series, I had never heard about the true historical figure Zenobia either. We like to say, “Zenobia is the most powerful woman you’ve never heard of.” It’s time to change that.

    Thanks for being a part of the BOOK BLITZ party. Get book two for FREE at amazon until July 3rd.
