I'm thrilled to announce the release of my latest novel, The Mirror and the Mage: A novel of ancient Rome, which is available as a paperback or a Kindle e-book.
It's my first YA (a "young YA" for ten- to thirteen-year olds) and the first book that combines my love for the Latin language with my passion for storytelling.
The Mirror and the Mage follows 14-year old Lucius Junius Brutus, who will one day becoming the liberator of Rome and the founder of the Roman Republic.
On the cusp of adulthood, Lucius longs to follow his brother into the army of King Tarquin the Proud, but his father sends him to the remote shrine of Numa Pompilius to be a priest. Lucius thinks he will spend his life guarding dusty sacred scrolls, but he soon finds out that the scrolls have power-- and powerful enemies. To save the city, Lucius must become a priest and a warrior.
If you like Latin language, you may be interested in the game being developed from the book, which is in beta form here.
