WHAT IS THE GENRE AND AUDIENCE FOR THIS BOOK:
YA Historical Fantasy. Audience would be more 14-18 yrs old
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:
I always held a fascination with ancient history, particularly the history of the Roman Empire and their many attempts to gain entry into the Gaelic regions (Britannia, later Britain) being one of them. For Rise of An Empire, I found a unique way to show my love for the history of Rome and did not disappoint.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK:
My story, Rise of An Empire tells the story of two Roman soldiers who find themselves on the run after the city of Rome is attacked by a clan of enemies known as Goths. However, Rise of An Empire also tells the story of how these two Roman legionnaires, along with some allies find themselves pitted against a force that seemed otherworldly. How can they fight against something like this?
