Come and hear Simon Scarrow talk about his writing career and his most recent book ‘Hearts of Stone’.
Simon Scarrow is a Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author. After a childhood spent travelling the world, he pursued his great love of history as a teacher, before becoming a full-time writer. His Roman soldier heroes Cato and Macro made their debut in 2000 in ‘Under the Eagle’, and have subsequently appeared in many bestsellers in the Eagles of the Empire series. These books follow the exploits of centurions Macro and Cato across the Roman Empire – most recently in Britain holding the line against the native tribes under Kings like Caratacus and inspired by the legendary Druids.
Hearts of Stone is a powerful new novel bringing to vivid life the fierce courage of the men and women of the Greek resistance during World War Two.

A friendship formed in peace will turn into a desperate battle between enemies sworn to sacrifice everything for the countries that they love…
