Barbara Ruth Tieken Draws Inspiration from Ancient Mediterranean Culture in Book “Bull Vaulter: Alena of the Isle of Green”


“Bull Vaulter: Alena of the Isle of Green” by author Barbara Tieken is a book masterly created based on the history and practices of the people of the Mediterranean.

The historical fiction book is about Alena, who is on her quest to become a bull vaulter in Keft. With the help of Alena’s mentor, Aesclevius, Alena embarks on several journeys to discover much about herself and her gift, her surroundings, and the grace that enables her to face every sunrise with determination and conviction in her heart.

There are several realizations Alena makes, but most important of all, she learns about the invisible eye always looking after her, the divine source of grace that allows Alena to fulfill her destiny.

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.
