Near future. Remy and Ezzy crave a vacation from the stress of Remy’s career. While visiting the famous catacombs, Remy accidently touches a skull, becomes delusional and claims he’s two hundred years dead.

What happens next will test all Ezzy and Remy thought sacred.

By A.K. Patch on Aug 27, 2020 in The Catacombs' Curse

Stories come to authors by different means. The idea for THE CATACOMBS’ CURSE didn’t arise in a dream state or the need to write to market.

This novel had its start within the Paris Catacombs.


Did Bessus battle PTSD?

The psychological background and surprising pedigree of this 5th Century BCE warrior.

Readers of the Apollo Series trilogy often remark that they find this Bactrian horseman one of the most interesting characters to follow in the story. I worked on his personality traits with a psychologist, and there’s more to know on the background on this often terrifying, but complicated, warrior.
