William Russeth has retired in Georgetown, Texas and is active in the San Gabiel Writer's League after a 30 career in Marketing Communications and Business Development. He Penned his first novel" Fires of Belenus" in 2007 and continues to bring myth and history to life in his historical adventures.

Background Information


My motivation is simple. I have always been fascinated with mythology and ancient history. I love interpreting an ancient myth and recreating in a realistic way. Michael Chricton's book "Eaters of the Dead", which is the Beowulf saga, and Mary Stewart's Hollow Hills series, the story of King Arthur,  inspired and fired my imagination.

I few years ago I became fascinated with Celtic Mythology and when I realized that at one time Celtic Languages were spoken from Asia Minor to Spain and From Northern Italy to Ireland, I knew I had found a slice of space and time that has not been over exploited by other authors. In the first book, Fires of Belenus, I played with well known legends like Cu Cuchulainn, the sword in the stone, and the Lady of the Lake, trying to present them in the context of an exciting story and realistic plot that was plausible. In the second book of he series, Cult of Camulos, the characters butt heads with Romans. Actual historic battles and archaeological sites are used in several of the settings. When the characters travel back to their Celtic World they slip back into the world of Celtic lore. Part of my mission is to make people aware that our Celtic heritage has influenced our culture as much as Roman domination and conquest.
