Hello fellow history buffs

Post by Shaddix1980 » Mon October 8th, 2012, 4:49 am

Hello from Sacramento, Ca.

My name is Christopher and I am a writer who loves history, namely anything to do with the Roman Republic and Empire. I am a published author and former video game writer with over seven years experience. But, I've been studying Roman history for twelve years, but it doesn't end just with Roman as I love history in general.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
