Hello, my name is William Kelso. I was born in the Netherlands to British parents. My interest in history and in particular military history started at a very young age when I was lucky enough to hear my grandfather describing his experiences of serving in the RAF in North Africa and Italy during World War 2. Recently my family have discovered that one of my Scottish and Northern Irish ancestors fought under Wellington at the battle of Waterloo in 1815.
I love writing and bringing to life the ancient world of Rome, Carthage and the Germanic and Celtic tribes. After graduation I worked in financial publishing for 22 years as a salesman for some big brands but the desire to write never went away so since the 2nd March 2017 I am a full time professional writer. Stories as a form of entertainment are as old as cave man and telling them is what I want to do.
My books are all about ancient Rome, especially the early to mid-republic as this was the age of true Roman greatness. My books include, The Shield of Rome, The Fortune of Carthage, Caledonia (1), Hibernia (2), Britannia (3), Hyperborea (4), Germania (5), The Dacian War (6), Armenia Capta (7), Rome and the Conquest of Mesopotamia (8) and Devotio: The House of Mus. Go on, give them a go.
