The common them of Roman influence was everywhere. Eventually a burning interest in Roman history combined with that of the religious history of ancient Judea caused the idea for the first book in the Shadow Series.
The Shadow series includes everything he has an interest in. Religious history, military history, historical fiction, clandestine activities, philosophy, poetry, and yes...romance.
His fascination with military history, weapons, armor, martial arts and leadership stem greatly from his grandfather's influence. He was a soldier in Edson's raiders who fight in most brutal combat in US history in Guadalcanal. His religious fever comes from his mother and father who are people of faith. His interest in philosophy and psychology come from his brother who is a brilliant thinker and practicing psychologist specializing in the difficult field of DBT. His love for poetry and romance come from the heart. All these interests are reflected in his novels creating a rich environment and well developed characters.
