Sam Barone is an American historical novelist with novels centered on early Antiquity. He attended Manhattan College, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1965, with a major in Psychology and a minor in History. He was born and raised in Queens, N.Y. After a hitch in the Marine Corps, he entered the world of technology. In 1999, after 30 years developing software in management, Sam retired from Western Union International, as VP of International Systems. Seven years later, the author’s first Eskkar story, Dawn of Empire, was published in the United States and UK. It has since been released worldwide. Sam’s sixth book in the Eskkar saga, Clash of Empires, was published in 2013. History and reading have always been two of Barone’s favorite interests, and he considers himself more of a storyteller than a writer. “I write stories that I would enjoy reading, and it’s a true blessing that others have found these tales interesting, informative, and entertaining.” Barone and his wife, Linda, and their cats, Minga and Norton, live in Prescott.
