Non-fiction by day, fiction by night. 

I enjoyed Steven Pressfield’s Gates of Fire, his excellent novel of the battle of Thermopylae. 

His non-fiction masterpiece, The War of Art, remains a key influence in my approach to the creative life and is one of a few books that merits rereading regularly. 

Fiction has been missing from my life recently, so I’m embarking on this story set in ancient Greece. A novel at night is a great way to end the day and nurture your imagination.
