Barbara Ruth Tieken Empowers Women with Book “Bull Vaulter: Alena of the Isle of Green”


Author Barbara Ruth Tieken takes historical fiction to a new level with her book “Bull Vaulter: Alena of the Isle of Green.” Tieken explores the role of women in the Mediterranean region as early as 2100 BCE and brings the focus of faith and spirituality back to the Divine Goddess, mother of all creations.

Set in the Aegean region of the Mediterranean, the story centers around Alena, a bull vaulter from Keft, who has to make numerous journeys in order to fulfill the purpose entrusted to her by the Divine Mother. Alena learns about herself just as she discovers many fascinating aspects about the world around her.

In the end, will Alena fulfill her purpose and be the beacon of hope and strength that women desperately need up until today?

About the Author
Barbara Tieken, author of “Bull Vaulter, Alena of the Isle of Green,” has now returned to her childhood home in Texas where she writes a weekly column for Historic Old Town Shiner in The Shiner Gazette.  Barbara has been described as “a friend of all who fly, be it bird or spirit.” An avid environmentalist, 2010 and 2015 performance poet at Trails and Vistas’ Art Hike in the Sierra Nevada, published poet and essayist, teacher, former Mayor and City Councilwoman of New Braunfels, Texas, Barbara wrote this historical fiction novel while she and her late husband lived in Newport, Oregon, high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Pacific.

Barbara continues to be inspired by the writings of the late UCLA Archaeologist/Mythologist Dr. Marija Gimbutas, and the excavations of Akrotiri on Santorini by the late Dr. Spyridon Marinatos and Dr. Christos Doumas as chronicled by Dr. Charles Pellegrino’s Unearthing Atlantis, An Archaeological Odyssey.  Barbara’s long desire has been to bring this highly-evolved, peaceful, Goddess-worshiping, life-affirming, navigational culture that dominated the Aegean and Mediterranean for thousands of years on Keft (Crete) and Kalliste (Santorini) to a wider reading audience.
