3. Meet the Author
=======================
We are happy to announce that bestselling author Conn Iggulden has agreed to answer some of our question in a brief interview we did recently. If this is well received by our readers we definitely going to approach further authors and try to pick their brains.

Born in London, Conn Iggulden read English at London University and worked as a teacher for seven years before becoming a full-time writer. Married with two children, he lives in Hertfordshire. His highly acclaimed debut novel, The Gates of Rome was an instant bestseller, remaining in the Sunday Times top ten for over two months. It was the first novel in the Emperor series, in which he brilliantly interweaves history and adventure to recreate the astonishing story of Julius Caesar, an epic tale of ambition and rivalry, bravery and betrayal. The second novel in the series, The Death of Kings, spent ten weeks in the charts and reached the number 1 position...

You can read the interview in our forum!
