Sam, a University of Toronto History student, receives a letter informing him that he has inherited some property in Bulgaria, the country of his parents. Somewhat reluctantly, he decides to go there accompanied by his best friend Ben, a charming young man with a flair for languages and adventure.
In the country of his parents Sam comes face to face with a different reality which gives rise to a series of uncanny events and leads him to question his identity. The short, pleasant trip the two friends were envisaging suddenly becomes darker as they travel to the site of one the most sacred ancient Thracian cities. There, a whirlwind of encounters throws them in the pursuit of a relic of world-changing importance and into the arms of the beautiful and mysterious Ana.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always wanted to write a book in this genre and conversation with a friend who is a History Professor provided me with the main idea for the book.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the characters have the features and idiosyncrasies of people I know. Others were born as I was writing the book.

“I see that you have started working at the University Café. That’s good. Tonight you should go to the “Under the Linden Trees” restaurant. You will be working as a waitress there twice a week. A lot of people from the university go there for dinner. Your name has been added to the university roster and you should start attending some of the lectures. You are a part time student who works in order to support herself. Have you already established a contact with him?”
“Good. Make sure he goes to the excavation site and works shoulder to shoulder with the old professor. We need to find out what the old ass knows.”
“He will be going there shortly. He is coming to the café tomorrow morning to get his instructions from me.”
“Make sure that he is completely under your control. Sleep with him if necessary.”
“That can be arranged, but I don’t think that it will be necessary. His ambition is his real mistress.”
“I trust your experience. You know what to do if you need something. Do not call me directly. Our department has been under a lot of scrutiny lately.”
He hung up.
