Three Spartans Book Launch

Last Thursday, friends and family came out to Vancouver Kidsbooks where we launched The Three Spartans, my newest novel and first middle grade comedy.

My publisher, Crwth Press. Jonathan on the left, Melanie on the right.
Friends who are family: Sarah and Rob
Don and Meg who came from a long journey to be there for me. Love these two!
My Dungeons and Dragons family. Matan, Ashley, and Adrian.
And of course my housemate Suzie and my girlfriend, Amanda. Support and love–what every writer needs!

This certainly won’t be my final stop in promoting the book! I have a signing at Black Bond Books this Saturday, and more to announce in 2020!

To sign off, here’s the video Crwth Press made of the book.

Fun Fact Friday

I was first introduced to Greek history in university while in my 20s. I studied the Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War, and read it cover to cover. Since then, I’ve been dabbling in Spartan/Athenian history from the taking of Troy to the rule of Alexander the Great. I first discovered Birch Bay while on a road trip. I decided to take a road I’d never taken before, and found myself in a small coastal beach town that immediately made me feel at peace. I knew at that moment I needed to write a book that took place there.

You can support this into becoming a series by buying a copy of the book.
