Product description

Review

For love and for country, one woman must act and think swiftly. "The Sign of the Eagle" is a novel set in ancient Rome. Macha, daughter of a Celtic king, delves into the intrigue of Roman life as her husband is accused of murder and the very nature of the empire may be at stake. With many fascinating characters, "The Sign of the Eagle" is a strong addition to any collection looking for more historical fiction. -- Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Jess Steven Hughes brought his lifetime's fascination with ancient Roman history into his debut novel, The Sign of the Eagle. The fascination continues as this has become part of a chain of books called the Britannia Romanus series. This includes The Wolf of Britannia, Part I and Part II. Another historical novel, The Broken Lance, set in Roman Britain and Imperial Rome is the first book of a duo-logy that includes The Peace Keeper. Jess is a retired a police detective sergeant, Long Beach Police Dept, Long Beach, CA. He holds a Masters Degree from the University of Southern California in Public Administration with a minor (my first academic love) in Ancient Mediterranean Civilizations. He also served four years United States Marine Corps (1962/66). As a retired person, Jess believes in keeping very busy. You must stay active mentally, physically and socially. These are a few of the keys to a long and healthy retirement. Writing novels has contributed greatly to my quality of life. He lives with his wife, Liz, on a four-acre mini-farm in Eastern Washington. His hobby is outdoor model railroading. He has an outdoor model railroad that was featured in the June/July 2010 issue of the regional magazine PRIME NORTHWEST (www.primenw.com). Check their website for the article. He was also featured in the Today segment of the Spokane Spokesman-Review, August 18, 2012, The Longest Chapter, in which he discussed his quest to become a published author. Check the following link for the article. http: //www.spokesman.com/stories/2012/aug/18/the-longest-chapter/ Jess is a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association (PNWA) and is active in the Red Ink Fictioneers writers support group in the Spokane, WA area. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
