Andrew is currently developing a historical series set in 1st Century Rome. It's an origin story packed with action and humour.


Lucas, an aspiring physician from Antioch cuts his teeth as a medic in the Roman 5th legion under the protection of his family’s slave.  His forensic investigation into a rebellion during the brutal Battle of Baduhenna puts him in good graces with  battle-tested General Lucius Apronius who helps to fast-track his medical training after the war. As he ascends the social ladder of Rome he is placed on a high-stakes mission to bury the strange rumours creating political scandal in the Capital when strange reports of the undead being sighted in a far-off and volatile Roman outpost.  The pressure to solve the supernatural mystery with scientific evidence thrusts Lucas into a series of adventures that could shake the very foundations on which Rome was built.
