You may remember the charming Celine Jeanjean from my recent post, A Perfect Blurb. Having read Pearseus: Rise of the Prince, Celine interviewed me, asking some great questions about the true story of the Grecopersian wars; my inspiration behind Pearseus.
We ended up discussing politics in Ancient Greece, what life was like for women in Athens, and much more.
The interview was part of a series of posts where Celine talks to writers about the interesting things they dig up during their research process. If you know of an indie writer who you’d be interested in seeing featured in this kind of interview (or if you’re one), just let her know in the comments!
Read the interview: Political Machinations in Ancient Greece… An Interview with Nicholas Rossis
That was a great interview, Nicholas. It was so thorough and covered so much information on your writing. I read this late as I’m still catching up with my email. — Suzanne
Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed my ramblings 😀
A fantastic interview. Congratulations.
That’s so sweet; thank you! 😀
Very interesting to see the research behind your own work. I must read some of those myself. I remember how excited I was to read ‘Gates of Fire’ by Steven Pressfield, when it was published in 1999.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks! I always find it fascinating to read ancient historians, because it brings home just how similar we are, and yet how different. That’s why I’m looking forward to Beard’s new book, SPQR, that details life in ancient Rome.
Heading right over there to read it now…
Loved it, Nick, well done, a really interesting interview on a subject or two I’m rather fond of myself, albeit in a different part of the world.
I think that sex and politics are pretty universal themes…
Fabulous interview! Congrats again. 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
I didn’t even realize your interview link was under the intro. Duh! Too early in the morning, I guess. I’ll hop over and read it now. But I have no doubt you nailed it. When will Musiville be available? In time for the holidays I hope, right?
Lol – it’s my discreet nature that’s to blame, no doubt 😀
I should hope so! Or I’ll have to take a quick trip to Hydra island and chase down those two 🙂
A fascinating interview by two great authors 😀
Aw, you! Thank you 🙂
A fascinating interview Nicholas. Highly enjoyable
Thank you so much, David! Hugs 🙂
