Timothy M. Kestrel, (or Timo), is an author, screenwriter, and creator. His work is inspired by a deep fascination with the past, and the mysteries inherent in every historical period. To me, history is full of life and color, he says, Even the most accurate historian cannot tell exactly what happened in any specific point in time. As a writer of fiction, I explore that gap of uncertainty. When he is not working on creating exciting stories, Timo is an Ordained Stoic Philosopher and a Fellow of the College of Stoic Philosophers. In 2014, Timo was the first in over 2000 years to graduate on the original site of the school at Stoa Poikile in Athens, Greece, where the original Stoics congregated in ancient times. While his work is steeped in history and philosophy, his achievements are not merely academic. He earned the coveted Ranger tab while serving with the notorious US Army Rangers, and his military work led him on missions in both Central America and the Caribbean. Today, Timo continues to delve into the unknown, using his rich imagination to breathe life into fascinating characters, unforgettable places, and compelling stories.
"Much like the previous volume, Kestrel's novel is full of adventure, battle, derring-do, and excitement." - Publishers Weekly "The book gives life to those who fought for their country as well as those who loved them. This allows readers to feel a connection to history in a manner not possible through textbooks alone. The similarities and differences between historical and present day soldiers and battles can be felt through the characters, thus creating a link between them." - Military Writers Association of America "Captures the gritty magic of an era in three unforgettable epics." "A story that spans continents, centuries, and cultures... suddenly, the past is as tangible as the present." "Haunting. Gripping... sparkles with intrigue and excitement."
