I am a life-long historian and the author of twenty books, including seven Ancient History best-sellers, and two South African History best-sellers. I wrote the initial draft of his first novel, "Soldier of Rome: The Legionary", as a cathartic means of escapism while serving with the U.S. Army in Iraq from 2004 to 2005. My works span numerous eras, from Ancient Rome to the British Empire.
