About Debra Hamel

I'm the author of a number of books about ancient Greece written for the "intelligent general reader." I've also self-published some shorter works along the same lines: Killing Eratosthenes and The Mutilation of the Herms are chapter-length studies that anyone with an interest in history can enjoy. No prior knowledge of antiquity is assumed. (You'll find a complete list of my publications on this site.)

I like Soylent, crossword puzzles, and Esperanto. People who've met me think I'm likable but somewhat odd. Mother of two and an introvert, I get 10,000 steps a day. I write and tweet from my subterranean lair in North Haven, Connecticut.
