I am a doctor, living and working in Adelaide, South Australia. This has always been my home, apart from a wonderful year working in London in the early days. Since my teenage years, Greek and Roman history has been my favourite reading. “A Pyrrhic Victory” is an extension of my love of, and delight in, Greco-Roman history and literature. It was a great honour to have the book published, and even more so when it received the two literary awards: 2011 IPPY Awards. Gold Medal, Historical Fiction (Category 12 B, Military / War). Winner, Historical Fiction. NABE Pinnacle Book Awards, Summer 2012.
