Adam Alexander Haviaras is a writer of historical fiction/fantasy, trained as an historian and archaeologist. Adam has always loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Believing that places are portals to the past he likes nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting his imagination take over. 

Adam has 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. His studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.

Adam's first novel set in the Roman Empire, Children of Apollo (Book I of the Eagles and Dragons series) is available in paperback and e-book from Amazon and Smashwords. Book II of the Eagles and Dragons series, Killing the Hydra, will be released at the beginning of 2014.

Great idea for a fiction story - a totally underused part of Greek mythology. Some anachronistic language but a great opening nevertheless. I will...

@SallySlater I wouldn't be too hard on yourself. That first chapter is quick, punchy and introduces a lot in two pages - Sam - Palladins -...

Just read chapter 1, Sally, and I'm well-hooked. Can't wait to read on! Cheers!
