Brian Smith

Biography

Brian grew up in Germany as the only son of an Anglo-German family. From an early age he immersed himself in literature which opened up new worlds to him and offered a kind of 'time travel' where no place or time in history is out of reach. Later he moved to Hong Kong and spent half a life time in the Far East exploring the mysteries of an ancient world.
Besides his native languages English and German, he also studied French and Latin which has given him direct access to many ancient documents and texts.
He is married and has two children.
