Product description


‘A sharp, action-packed novel based on ancient myth’ — Tansy Rayner Roberts

About the Author

Julian Barr first fell in love with all things Greek and Roman in childhood, when he staged his own version of I, Claudius using sock puppets. After his PhD in Classics, he did a brief stint as a schoolteacher, hated being called 'sir,' and dived into storytelling. Although he remains open to the possibilities of sock puppet theatre, historical fantasy is his passion. He has published scholarly research on Roman medicine and the gastronomic habits of Centaurs, but prefers to think of himself as an itinerant bard. Ashes of Olympus: The Way Home is his debut novel.
