Chris Angus Honestly, who could be better? Churchill was famously irascible, witty, charming and quirky. What could be more fun than to place him in scenes with famous people like Queen Victoria or King George or to imagine him facing exciting challenges stretching from his time as a captive of the Boers at the beginning of the twentieth century to his leadership during WW II. It was a chance to follow imagined exploits across the length of Africa when much of the continent was still largely unknown. A traitorous member of the royal family, a magnificent hidden treasure of the Nubians, a previously unknown African connection with ancient Rome. Great fun--the most I've ever had as a writer!
