The former COO of an American market research company, Stephen is the award-winning author of 25 books about British, American, French, Australian, and Roman history. It is for his nine books about the ancient Romans that he is best known around the world. His decades of research into the legions of Rome have made him an authority on the subject. His latest book, Legions of Rome (Quercus), was a New Statesman book of the week.
A highly experienced and entertaining speaker, Stephen has also been a writer and producer of documentaries, while his first childrenís novel was filmed starring Billy Connolly. Among current projects are a stage musical with composer and former Seeker Keith Potger and histories covering the California Gold Rush, the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, and Britainís largest naval mutiny. He travels extensively to research and promote his books
