About the author (1997)

John has always had a passion for the Roman world, especially Roman Britain. He was born in Chester on the English/Welsh border in the UK, the former Roman City of Deva. He joined the Royal Air Force at the age of 17, and over the next 25 years travelled and served all over the world, attaining the rank of Flight Sergeant. During that time, his interest in the subject matter grew, and as well as studying historical texts, he visited as many sites related to the Roman Empire as he was able. Further inspired by authors such as Simon Scarrow, Ben Kane, Manda Scott, Douglas Jackson, Ruth Downie and many more, he began working on the Blood of Rome series. The first book, 'Blood of Rome Caratacus' was published in September 2013.
