ABOUT T.J. ALTIERI
As an author, TJ Altieri has dedicated himself to challenging paradigms and eliciting deep social commentary in a thoroughly engaging way for the reader. By fusing genres and counterbalancing perspectives, he compels the reader to engage in questions about society and one's own self. Aside from his most recent crime and political thriller "Controlling Interest", Altieri has written three as of yet unpublished novels in the genres of drama, high fantasy, and science fiction. He considers the factor that drives and unites all of his stories to be the empathy and humanity we feel through his characters and how they make us reflect on our own decisions. Outside of fiction, TJ Altieri has completed historical treatises in archaeology, anthropology, and gender studies. When not writing, he works as a history educator in Connecticut Public Schools and as a conservationist working to preserve wildlife, in and out of human care, at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo.
Here are the resources that T.J. gave me for Celtic research:
The Ancient Celts by Cunliffe: A pretty standard and well-recognized text that swans the swatch of Celtic history, culture, and society.
War, Women and Druids by Phillip Freeman: Focuses on contemporary eyewitness accounts of the elements mentioned in the title.
The Druids by Ellis: Focuses more on druidic religion, philosophy and practices.
Caesar Against the Celts: Focuses on the Gallic Wars and battle with the Romans
Atlas of the Celtic World: Focuses on geography.
