About the Author
So when she came to novel writing in reaction to a really dire film, alternate history thrillers featuring a strong female character in a Roman themed world weren't so unlikely!
INCEPTIO starts the Roma Nova series and our heroine's own story, PERFIDITAS (betrayal), finds her caught between two men and falsely accused of conspiracy. In SUCCESSIO, chickens come home to roost as the next generation enters the scene...
Alison has also published a history ebook, Military or Civilians? The curious anomaly of the German Women's Auxiliary Services during the Second World War and for new writers, The 500 Word Writing Buddy.
