BIO: Nearing retirement, I now have more time to devote to writing (and if I don’t, I squeeze the day until there is a space/time to crawl into). Over the past 15 years, I have worked on 15 books, three of which (of the Dreamcast series) are self-published.
My website, http://www.PaulTelegdi.ca gives a full account of my life and accomplishments, which I shall not repeat here.
The thumbnail version: I was born in Hungary; when young immigrated to Canada with my family, attended University of Waterloo, Ontario, where I met my wife. Spent years in West Germany where my wife was studying music while I was learning German. Returning to Canada, we ended up on a farm in Ontario with pets. Long-time married, I boast of three sons with talent and personality.
Presently I am office manager of my wife’s private practice of psychology. I like kayaking and windsurfing. I belong to a number of writers’ groups, and often choose writing over sleeping. eBooks are an exciting new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to the wider exposure.
My motto: Want a better life? Then write it!

This book surprised me, I can not beleive it was free. It is 1131 pages of adventure, romance, violence and historical detail of the Roman Empire. Africa, Italy, Greece,the Eastern Mediterannian, with a finish up the Danube River. I read this novel in four days. This book is the story of a Roman soldier,stationed in Africa who becomes a slave, an outlaw, and part of tribe of the Huns during an era of history where just living from day to day was beset by strife and adventure and always by learning. Read this book! It would make a great story for a movie!

This was a very fun and interesting book to read from start to finish. I highly recommend it anyone, especially those who enjoy historical fiction (loosely based on facts).
