AMBER ROAD: A NOVEL OF ROME AND THE WILDERNESS, next in the Roma Amor series, is on its way to publication later this summer! (See below for a brief teaser.)

In the meantime, I'm thrilled that ROMA AMOR, my first novel about Caligula's Rome, has been getting great reader reviews. If you like historical fiction with a mystery at its heart, you may really enjoy it.

Like many novelists, I've been writing all my life. Early influences were Rosemary Sutcliff and Mary Renault. More recently, I've loved GATES OF FIRE and THE SONG OF ACHILLES.

On a personal note, I live in coastal Maine with my husband and two cats. With "money therapist" Olivia Mellan, I also write guides to money psychology.

In AMBER ROAD, treachery looms over the road to a man's honor.

They call it a road, this rutted and potholed dirt track that meanders to the northern sea where amber is found. To former Army tribune Marcus Carinna, it’s a life-threatening leap from the Roman frontier into a wilderness teeming with hostile barbarians, dangerous beasts, and giant trees said to engulf sleeping men at night.

Yet the Amber Road is the trail he must follow. Disgraced by an attack on the emperor Caligula that cost his father’s life, he must find Aurima, the bold and willful Germanic priestess who can help him restore his family honor.

When an imperial spymaster recruits him to lead an expedition into the Danubian wilderness, Marcus jumps at the opportunity to search for her. But as his troops slog along the Amber Road, he will discover that he is not out of reach of his enemies’ vengeance—and that saving the woman he loves is going to demand more heart and will than he knew he possessed.

AMBER ROAD will be on sale this spring. Thanks!(less)
Sherry Christie Oh, it would have to be Claire and Jamie Fraser. They're each so independent and capable, yet utterly committed to each other.

Sherry Sherry said: " Despite being a big fan of Giles Kristian’s Viking sagas, I originally set aside LANCELOT after reading only the Prologue, dispirited at the idea of another Dark Ages fantasy about King Arthur. Recently I came across the book again and thought, “Well ...more "

“Roman Centurion's Song"

LEGATE, I had the news last night - my cohort ordered home
By ships to Portus Itius and thence by road to Rome.
I've marched the companies aboard, the arms are stowed below:
Now let another take my sword. Command me not to go!

I've served in Britain forty years, from Vectis to the Wall,
I have none other home than this, nor any life at all.
Last night I did not understand, but, now the hour draws near
That calls me to my native land, I feel that land is here.

Here where men say my name was made, here where my work was done;
Here where my dearest dead are laid - my wife - my wife and son;
Here where time, custom, grief and toil, age, memory, service, love,
Have rooted me in British soil. Ah, how can I remove?

For me this land, that sea, these airs, those folk and fields suffice.
What purple Southern pomp can match our changeful Northern skies,
Black with December snows unshed or pearled with August haze -
The clanging arch of steel-grey March, or June's long-lighted days?

You'll follow widening Rhodanus till vine and olive lean
Aslant before the sunny breeze that sweeps Nemausus clean
To Arelate's triple gate; but let me linger on,
Here where our stiff-necked British oaks confront Euroclydon!

You'll take the old Aurelian Road through shore-descending pines
Where, blue as any peacock's neck, the Tyrrhene Ocean shines.
You'll go where laurel crowns are won, but -will you e'er forget
The scent of hawthorn in the sun, or bracken in the wet?

Let me work here for Britain's sake - at any task you will -
A marsh to drain, a road to make or native troops to drill.
Some Western camp (I know the Pict) or granite Border keep,
Mid seas of heather derelict, where our old messmates sleep.

Legate, I come to you in tears - My cohort ordered home!
I've served in Britain forty years. What should I do in Rome?
Here is my heart, my soul, my mind - the only life I know.
I cannot leave it all behind. Command me not to go!”
Rudyard Kipling
