I am Scottish, born in Edinburgh, and spent the first 41 years of my life not far from my fair and bonnie "Athens of the North". I now live in Topeka, Kansas with my wife (bless her), no pets (don't like 'em), no children (all moved out), and with many gallons of home-made wine bubbling as I write.
I love to write, and enjoy literary challenges of all kinds. I'm not confined by genres, having equal success in Historical adventure, Sci Fi, Fantasy, Horror and hard hitting gritty crime.
I watch far too much football (Don't even think of calling it 'soccer'.) and at times chase a dimpled ball along carefully manicured countryside, with a collection of calibrated, graphite-shafted sticks. I play guitar and sing in a folk/rock band, and would love to have enough money to tour the world's archeological sites until I'm too old to walk.

Bravo Ian Hall!
Caledonii: Birth of a Nation. (Part Two; The Druid's Plan.) After reading a small sample of the first book in this series I had to buy all of the ones that are currently available. Book 2 Was not a disappointment in any way I can think of. I read it and moved on to 3 in a matter a few hours! While the author takes clan feuds and parent/child friction in this book it was obvious to me that the author has a clear and full on understanding of the culture he is writing about. A great danger looms on the horizon but when will the Romans move invade and where will they hit next? One of the main character's bothers is called to service and training as a Dhruid. His journey opens a perspective into the political druidic issues in a way that I have not read about before. While he trains for life or death the Main Character amps up the mystery and thrill of the story. Page turning didn't slack for a moment. Another great section of this saga Ian Hall! Telling all my friends about this series!
