Time to travel again. September finds me roaming through ancient civilizations, starting in Rome, then visiting the ruins of Herculaneum, and on to Crete, Rhodes Athens and ultimately Israel.
One of the great pleasures in life, is always to return to Ephesus, Turkey where my character John Sinclair has his archaeological dig. I have always loved these ancient ruins, and feel somehow connected to the civilization that lived here in the First century AD. This place speaks to my soul.
The life of a novelist is not so different from that of a journalist except in the things we report. Looking at the past is so instructive to our present problems. Perhaps ancient and modern civilizations are not so different after all.
Wishing you a wonderful September filled with new horizons and insights.
