    You can visit Vaughn at vaughnheppnerI was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow fort I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut I didn t panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel Those were great days I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn t believe I lived in a land where oranges grew on trees and you could pick grapes from the vine.I used to wonder what I wanted to do with my life, what kind of work specifically I was miserable not knowing and bordering on desperate Then one day a friend gave me his typewriter I began working on a novel A different person told me it was much easier on a computer, so I bought one and began getting up at 4 30 A.M each morning before work, writing for three hours My eyes were unglued once again as the pang of misery left my gut I knew exactly what I wanted to do write So now that s what I do, I write, and write, and write, and I love it.

    The Sword of CarthageThe Sword of Carthage, by Vaughn Heppner, tells a tale of the first Punic war through the eyes of Hamilcar Barca, the father of Hannibal.In writing The Death of Carthage, my novel of the second and third Punic wars, I naturally tried to learn all I could about the first Punic war, but somehow it remained shrouded in mist.

    I love history told this way. Heppner seems to have done his homework on facts, not that I'm an expert, but I have read a lot on the Second Punic War, and two books on the First Punic War. If Heppner strayed it wasn't far. He also did a good job of constructing the tale. It's difficult to relate history this way, keep the facts, but make it interesting. I give him credit for that, too. Now comes the difficult part. For as much work as Heppner put into his research, I wish he would have put half [...]

    First, this book isn't about Hannibal. It is about his father, Hamilcar Barca. That alone is enough to set it apart from the hundreds of other historical fiction novels. I won't lie though, I randomly go online and look for books about Hannibal and that would be how I found this particular gem. This book is AMAZING. Totally 5/5 stars. Heppner has about ten other books on Barnes and Noble that I'm going to have to check out as well. I hope that there is a sequel to this being planned because it l [...]
