'History is more than facts on a pages. It's the sounds, the smells, the people, the passion. History should make you think: "I was there." My books are born from my obsession with Roman history. I've followed Spartacus' trail across Italy. I've stood at Cannae and imagined Hannibal's army meeting the massed legions of Rome. I've watched the sea lapping against the fortifications of Syracuse, which were besieged by the Romans for almost two years. I've walked Hadrian's Wall in full Roman military dress, including hobnailed boots. Immerse yourself in these incredible stories and - like me - remind yourself why the legend of Rome endures.' - Ben Kane 'Who is the rising star of historical fiction?

Yes, that IS Ian McKellen in the second pic - he was generous enough to do the voice over the movie that we had made of our second charity walk, in 2014, during which we raised over $40,000 for charity. The third picture is of me and my co-Roman authors and walkers, Anthony Riches and Russell Whitfield, on Hadrian's Wall in 2013. Taken by Dr Mike Bishop.Read more Read less
