A to Z Challenge: Q is for Quirinus

I'll give a you a whole batch of cookies if you knew who this guy was--ever heard of Quirinus?

If not, here's your chance to find out...

Quirinus is an early god of the Roman state. When the Sabines and Romans called a truce to their warring, Romulus became the leader of this ultimately Roman government. He ruled for 38 years, but during a storm, he suddenly vanished in a dark cloud. Some said he was killed by resentful Patrician senators. But he was officially said (by the senators) to have been taken up in a cloud and worshiped as the warrior god Quirinus.

Do I owe anyone a cookie?

If not, then read ahead! I'm the author of RAZE, a novella in the Shine universe, where young women manifest extraordinary abilities called Shine. My book is available on Amazon for $2.99. As always, thanks for following!

  1. You don't owe me a cookie, but I could really go for one. . . for some reason I think the senators actually killed him. ;)
