While reading a book on ancient Rome for his history class, Joshua Parry is stunned to see a mosaic portrait of his family—his mother, his sister and himself—from the fourth century AD. But not even that shock compares to waking up the next morning in Ephesus in the year 362 AD! For the next two weeks, Josh struggles to learn how to live in ancient Ephesus. With the help of friends, encounters with enemies, and the counsel of none other than emperor Julian the Apostate, Josh discovers new ways to view the world and his Christian faith. From seeking solace in the beauty of the Temple to Artemis, to training to fight with legionnaires, to debating religion and politics at seminars, Josh’s adventures in Ephesus teach him not only acceptance and confidence, but also how to defend himself with a gladius! When he returns to his modern-day home and family, he sets out to use his new skills and wisdom to establish peace with a posse of trouble-making classmates.

A Warrior for Artemis is Russ Hubbard’s first novel. It conveys his interest in history, in unusual approaches to teaching history, and in blending historical narration with the freedom of expression found in historical fiction. Subsequent books will explore teaching US History in high school and colleges, and reflections on learning the craft of teaching, distilled from thirty-some years of being a teacher educator in California, Canada, Australia, and Washington State. His next novel, currently in the birthing stage, is about a sixteen-year-old boy at the Battle of Bunker Hill, 1775. He and his wife Kathy, the artist for the book’s cover, live in Superior, Wisconsin, where Kathy teaches Art Education at the University of Wisconsin–Superior.
