Apollo the Sun god was the most Greek of the ancient deities of the Greek speaking world. His youthful appearance spirituality and vibrancy secured his position and promotion in the Greek world. Temple sites and oracle centres promoted his beliefs and spirituality promoted by his followers. Greek city states promoted their own city deities and looked to preserve their vice like grip over the city states they controlled and ruled. Apollo appealed to the individuals within the city states to believe in the spirituality and morality he represented. Politics and religions alone had created conflicts and war between the city states all fighting to advance and control the borderlands with their neighbours. Apollo through his oracle sites appealed to the individual citizens who formed the city states. His Soldiers used both the pen and the sword to establish and deliver Apollo's beliefs and thinking around the ancient Greek world. All would attend the sacred site of Delphi drawn towards the spiritual centre of the world to receive the sacred oracles of Apollo via his conduit the Pythia at Delphi. All these figures are found represented within Soldiers Of Apollo. All of his followers appear in the chapters of this book and they changed history by wielding the sword and pen protecting their beliefs in spirituality against the power of the city. state
BIOGRAPHY Hi, thanks for the interest been writing for about 16 years now started via an Archaeological course and Italian college course.
This involved long essays on Archaeology and research which i carried on and added to my growing history book library.
My first venture was a history blog which was a shared venture I penned articles and the additional posts were auto submits from guest blogs and posters a dual English American site.
After this project, I moved onto short stories and entered varied writing
With ideas for articles and topics for books the opportunity to create E- books offered me a rewarding pathway into producing my own books on history and ancient history via Amazon and Kindle and also releasing printed formats via Createspece.
My first Novel Sicania Rising was an idea that covered the battle of camicus between the islands of Sicily and Minoan Crete and the island empires fleets.
My many visits to Crete Greece and Sicily allowed me to gather an idea of the places mentioned in the book first hand and with my continued writing covering ancient history provide me with the inspiration to continue writing factual and historical Novels.
My interest was originally sparked by my parents who always had books in the house when we lived in a farm cottage in Budleigh Salterton beside the River Otter, with views of the sea easily reached by a tree-lined riverside path.
