AND LUCIUS TACITUS
Claudius Rifius and Lucius Tacitus are two eight-year-old friends best friends living in a small village modeled after an ancient Roman village. I created ten stories, the original ones for my own two sons, and the next several for my grandson. They are fantasy stories, in that they sometimes mix prehistoric and futuristic elements with the boys' own time period.
Claudius Rifius is curious, bold, even audacious at times. He gets himself and Lucius Tacitus into trouble, often with unwanted consequences, but just as often with a turn of events that works in their favor. Lucius Tacitus is timid, plays by the book, and tries to talk Claudius Rifius out of each new caper, though he never succeeds. In fact, he gets dragged into Claudius Rifius' trouble in each story. But in the end, they always learn, always apologize, and they end up coming out on top of their circumstances.
Note: A link for ordering the first two stories will be provided in March 2024.
