Since I was little, I've adored the myths of Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt, and to write Gods and Warriors, I’ve swum with wild dolphins and climbed an erupting volcano – all to make you feel that you're right there, living the adventure. Amazon readers' opinions matter hugely to me, and you could be among the first to read Gods and Warriors. I really hope you enjoy it.
