About the author

J. Rokusson

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​While backpacking in far-off countries, I quickly learned that the easiest way to have people both remember and pronounce my name is to introduce myself simply as J.<br>​​​​​​​<br>My travels take me to countries as different from my own as they can be, and they’ve been a rich source for my writing. Among my favourite destinations are the Near East, Central Asia and the Orient. My journey along the Silk Road was one of the best decisions I ever made, providing me with memories that will last a lifetime.<br>​​​​​​​<br>When at home, I hold an MA degree in Archaeology and have written over a hundred reports regarding my excavations. They vary from medieval cloisters and prehistoric villages to Roman military camps and roads. I like to think of my job as a mixture of storytelling and science.
