Greg Fisher- Hudson Novelist

Greg Fisher is the author of The Iranian Conspiracy. When archaeologist Andrew Thorpe hears about the chance discovery of a new Latin inscription at a remote volcano in southern Syria he embarks upon a quest which takes him to some of the most secretive and spectacular archaeological sites of the Middle East. He battles unseen forces to prevent an international catastrophe which threatens to destroy the prospects for peace in the Middle East once and for all.
Greg was raised in Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom, before moving to Canada in 1993. He attended McGill University for his BA (1999) and MA (2004), both in ancient history. In 2008 he completed a doctorate in the history of Late Antiquity (200-800 AD) at Keble College, University of Oxford. In 2011 he published a book on his research specialisation, under the title Between Empires. Arabs, Romans, and Sasanians in Late Antiquity (Oxford University Press). Fisher is Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Carleton University in Ottawa, and teaches courses on the Latin language and Greek and Roman history. He has excavated at archaeological sites in Jordan and Cyprus, and regularly conducts field research in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria. He lives in Hudson with his wife, Paola, and baby daughter, Amanda Tamsin.
