I have spent more than 20 years publishing extensively in science and the last five writing fiction. I am passionate about world literature, the arts and travel, because I believe the reality of the human experience is far more exciting than fantasy.
I am on a mission to bring this splendor back into public awareness. I want people in the 21st century to know that Byzantium was full of hardy people as well as magnificence. That there were ordinary people who lived bravely in difficult but exciting times and who showed great endurance in the face of adversity, sometimes rising to the highest positions in society because they dared to, not just because they were born to them. Many know that the Byzantines may have been pious on the surface, sometimes murderous in practice, and obsessed occasionally by religious zeal, but they were admirably courageous and boldly human in a way which seems to be lost to us blasé post-moderns. Please join me in my quest to bring this forgotten reality back to life!
