Alexander the Great

My non-fiction book     Alexander the Great: reckless conqueror has been rereleased with a terrific new cover to coincide with the Alexander the Great: 2000 years of treasures exhibition which opened recently in Sydney.


The exhibition is at the Australian Museum and will run for several months. I have been invited to speak about Alexander in sessions for kids next February. I will also talk about how Alexander is linked to that other interest of mine … dragons.


As with most of my books, I did all of my research into Alexander in books. I haven’t ever seen any of the artefacts that have survived from that time. So I’m really looking forward to seeing the exhibition and talking to people in Sydney.

I’ll post more information closer to the date.

  1. wow, It looks fantastic! I have always wanted to know more about him! Perhaps this is the chance!

    How many Tours have you been on? What one was the most popular?

  2. Owl,
    It’s not a tour. I’m just going to Sydney for a couple of days. I just go where I get invited to literary festivals etc. I don’t know which is most popular. I have no way of judging that.
