What is it like to live abroad in a place that is loaded with ancient history?

Author, Caterina Novelliere  tells us this week on Writing the Past.

Find out how her experiences as a child abroad affected her writing, her art, and her interests…
I meet a lot of people on-line as an author, historian, and blogger. The great thing about it is that sometimes you get to meet people with whom you click right away, people who have the same interests, similar experiences, and the same hunger to learn more about the world, and about history.

Boxing in Ancient Greece

I recently finished a big scene set during the ancient Olympics.

If you think you know boxing, think again!

It was a very different thing in the ancient world.

Real life tends to get in the way of writing, of editing. I feel lucky to have talented author and editor Catherine Hedge combing through For King and Country. Cathy is on the last 50,000 words now. She did a lot of reading the last two weeks, which means…

Story
Tagline
Author of historical fantasy/fiction set in the Roman Empire and ancient Greece. writingthepastblog.blogspot.com - Tweet me @AdamHaviaras
Introduction

I am a writer of historical fiction/fantasy with Eagles and Dragons Publishing, trained as an historian and archaeologist. 

For as long as I can remember I have loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Places are portals to the past and so I like nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting my imagination take over. 

One day I came to the realization that it would be a great thing to combine two of my favourite things, history and creative writing, to make the past accessible, thought provoking and above all, entertaining. I have studied ancient and medieval history and archaeology, and creative writing since 1991 and obtained an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Masters from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. My studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.

I'm always interested in connecting with other history lovers, readers, writers and anyone who loves to create art. 

So, drop me a comment or stop by my blog to connect around the virtual hearth fire.

Cheers!

I am married with 2 kids and I've been lucky enough to travel a fair bit and get some inspiration from ancient sites all over the UK, Europe and North Africa.
