Successful businessman, Michael Sedge, has returned to his passion as an author with the release of his eleventh title, The Oracle, a fast-paced novel that brings 427 B.C. mythology of the Greco-Roman peoples to modern Italy.
“There is great fascination in the ancient and contemporary history of Italy, as demonstrated by books like Pompeii and Angels and Demons,” said Sedge, who had a successful writing career, including ten books, TV documentaries, and over 4000 published articles before turning his talents to founding and growing four successful companies, in the United States, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. “In The Oracle, I’ve tried to capture the mystery of ancient mythology as well as the culture and people of Naples in an entertaining, thriller fashion.”
Sedge’s last book, The Lost Ships of Pisa, received the President of Italy’s Best Book of the Year Award as well as the “Rustichello of Pisa” Prize for International Journalism from the City of Pisa. It was also selected as a featured title by the Discovery Channel Book Club.
Living in Italy for nearly four decades, Sedge has written extensively on the Mediterranean region, including engagements as a correspondent for The Associated Press, assignment writer for Discovery Channel, and contributing editor to Scientific American Discovering Archaeology Magazine. In The Oracle, he draws upon his passion for history in a well woven tale of murder, mystery, and mythology.
The Oracle is available through Amazon.com.
