About the Author
Richard Denham is the son of a retired sergeant in the British Army and is interested in military history. He has a young son named Tristan, and struggles to deny that he is named after one of King Arthur's knights.
Richard enjoys collaborations and is the co-author of the popular 'Britannia' series with M. J. Trow. The series follows a group of soldiers and their descendants through the madness of a chain of events which will eventually lead to the fall of Roman Britain and the descent into the Dark Ages.
Richard has also co-authored 'The Citizen Survivor' series with Steve Hart, who is one of Britain's top survivalists.
M J Trow
A bestselling author of over sixty books, including forty novels, Mei Trow is nevertheless always looking for the next new idea.
A military historian by training and consummate story-teller by inclination, he had never thought of writing about the Romans' last hurrah in Britain until he met Richard Denham and then it seemed an obvious subject for a blockbusting series.
Using Richard Denham's exhaustive knowledge and his own wide-ranging grasp of history, Mei has brought his skill in bringing the past to life to the table in this collaboration. Reviewers have often mentioned how he makes historical characters seem as though the past is "now" and not a dusty "then" and he has made this as true for fourth century Britain as for Tudor or Victorian England (the Marlowe and the Lestrade series).
As a history teacher for more years than he cares to remember, making the past live is his passion and nothing pleases him more than the many reviews that say "I wish he had been my History teacher!"
