Austin Claflin isn’t your average high school student. Claflin is a senior at Southern Door High School and has recently just published his first novel Rebel and Roman. Claflin says that the story of two brothers pinned against one another fighting for their homeland on one side, and fighting for the Roman Empire on the other came from some blockbuster inspirations
Claflin released the novel in October and says that he is currently taking a break from writing after spending most of the year working on Rebel and Roman. However, he did say that once Christmas and New Years have passed, he will start working again on a new trilogy he will be releasing called Companions based off of the Macedonian army unit that he shares with readers throughout the three books.
