Overview

It is the winter of 53/52BC and while Caesar struggles with the chaos of a failing republic and recruits troops in Aquileia, Gaul's freedom fighters emerge, with a desire for Roman blood.

This collection of three tales presents a sequence of events that takes place in the winter between Marius' Mules books six and seven... events that, while peripheral to the saga itself, will shape events to come, shake the republic, and herald the one thing Caesar's army have feared most: a full-scale revolt.

Cenabum: The fire arrow - Caesar's chief quartermaster, Cita, encounters trouble with supply lines.
Bovillae: The fallen eagle - Former prefect Paetus leaves Rome with revenge on his mind.
Gergovia: Rise of kings - Priscus and his companions witness tumultuous events firsthand.

I live with my wife, little boy, baby girl and two (theoretically) dogs in rural North Yorkshire, where I sit in an office and attempt to spin engrossing tales out of strands of imagination while my children drive toys across my desk between me and my work. A born and bred Yorkshireman with a love of country, history and architecture, I spend most of my (rapdily diminishing) free time travelling around ancient sites, writing, researching the ancient world and playing with my children. Having written a number of unpublished short stories in my early days, I decided back in 2003 to try and write a full length novel. That was the start of Marius' Mules. Being a fan of Roman history, I decided to combine my love of writing and my love of the classical world. Marius' Mules was followed two years later by Interregnum - my attempt to create a new fantasy story still with a heavy flavour of Rome. These have been followed by numerous sequels, with three books in the fantasy 'Tales of the Empire' series and five in the bestselling 'Marius' Mules' one. 2013 has seen the first book in a 15th century trilogy - 'The Thief's Tale' - and will also witness several side projects seeing the light of day.
