Natta is certainly "leveling up" in this one: Whereas the first book had him saving Rome's frontier, and the second had him saving Rome itself, this one has him dealing with a worldwide threat. He's certainly missing his quaint little shop on the Aventine Hill when all he had to do was find missing heirlooms and pets.(less)

Dealing with writer's block, for me, is more a lack of discipline rather than a lack of something to say. Once you put something--anything, really--down on paper/screen/napkin, then that forward momentum usually leads to a paragraph, then a page, and then a book. (less)

Well met!


No question that life was hard in ancient Rome. Especially for Natta Magus, that time-traveling wizard from an alternate 21st century where magic is real.


In the all new WOUNDED MAGUS, book three in the Journals of Natta Magus series, Natta graduates from saving Rome to saving the world.


Here’s the blurb:


Natta Magus watched Helva, the granddaughter of Cleopatra, literally leap into hell...
