Writing Update

It has been a while since I’ve written one of these, and it’s been two years since the publication of Search for the Golden Serpent. This is the reason why I started a blog, to showcase my writing, share my passion for ancient history and to support fellow indie writers. So today, I am going…

Eat like an Ancient Egyptian

We know a lot about the Ancient Egyptians, thanks to this great ancient civilisation. Their desire and propagandist need to disclose what they did was paramount, especially for the pharaohs. They made sure their successes were touted everywhere. Rameses II was particularly good at promoting what a powerful and good ruler he was, even when…

A survey to kick-start the new year

I am glad to see the back end of 2015 although 2016 has started in the same vein but I will not dwell on it. To get things moving on my blog this year (I will get back to the series on the Minoans, promise!) I’d be grateful if people would spend a few minutes…

Results from poll

I must admit to being surprised and at the same time pleased by the results of my poll on Where entertainment and historical fact mix. There was a good range of votes and definite responses to the questions. Given the comments on earlier posts: The (uneasy?) marriage between fact and fiction and Entertainment over historical accuracy, I was expecting…

Up Up and Away

The eBook version of Search for the Golden Serpent is now live! If you live in the northern hemisphere, you may be lucky enough to sneak in and pre-order your copy before the day is out! It’s not where he appears, it’s when. What if you’re born during another time, grew up in the 21st…

Atlantis

Why are people fascinated with Atlantis? What is it about this mythical place that has drawn so much attention for over two thousand years? Is it about the people who once inhabited the island with their sophistication and technological advancements? Or is it the total annihilation of a civilisation, wiped out in one cataclysmic event?…

Greece is the Word

A few months back I read two very different books set in Athens, Greece by fellow indie authors. One is a native, the other a new resident to Greece. I was fortunate to connect with the lovely Effrosyni Moschoudi via Twitter and we exchanged emails. She kindly introduced me to Marissa Tejada, a journalist who…

Where did the year go?

It’s hard to believe but the first anniversary of Accursed Women is fast approaching. A lot has happened since 30 November 2013, high and low events. The greatest achievement was the publication of Accursed Women. The book launch was a wonderful success with support from family, friends and people I hadn’t met before. It had…
