About me

Introduction I'm a British writer and historian with a deep interest in the history of the Mediterranean and its surrounding area. Visit my main website at
Interests I describe myself as a narrative historian. I'm particularly fascinated by eyewitness history and dramatic first hand accounts of the great events of the past. I'm the author of three books to date: Constantinople: The Last Great Siege - 1453 in the US - (2005); Empires of the Sea (2008); City of Fortune (2011), a history of the rise of Venice.
