ARKHON – an epic tale from the dawn of democracy

Soon to be published: ARKHON is a fast-paced thriller that follows the fate of a former mercenary who becomes entangled in the overthrow of tyranny and the emergence of democracy in Ancient Athens.

In portraying many real events and characters of the Ancient World, Arkhon explores present-day issues that include political legitimacy, foreign intervention, revenge, superstition and the manipulation of religion. The drama draws directly from the tensions and discourse that developed around the Arab uprisings of 2011-13.
