Even before she pulled on her first set of combats, Alison Morton was fascinated by the idea of women soldiers. After six years in a special communications regiment, she left as a captain, having done all sorts of interesting and exciting things she can't talk about, even now…

The mosaics at Ampurias (Spain) and their creation by the complex, power and value-driven Roman civilisation made her wonder what a modern Roman society would be like if run by strong women.

Now, she writes Roman-themed alternate history thrillers with tough heroines, tends a Roman herb garden and drinks wine with her husband of 30 years. Sign up to Alison's newsletter for a FREE ebook of series starter INCEPTIO: http://eepurl.com/ckNeFL

Ha! Have you been reading my mind, Michele?
I'm planning to research this later this year. I'm writing a novella at present about Carina and hope to put a series of short stories together for this coming winter, then it's back to AD 395. Actually, it will be AD 375 when Lucius Apulius and Julia Bacausa meet... (less)
Alison Morton Ah! Now that would be telling!
There are elements from my own life in the military scenes, but I can't really comment further.

Anna  at the ABBA museum, Stockholm

Visiting Sweden on holiday recently was personally enormous fun, especially as my hostess was the ABBA singing historical fiction writer Anna Belfrage. But in a way it was spooky.

Good writing is rare. Even when I was only part of the way through the first of these stories, I knew i was in skilled hands. The style is succinct, yet you are left with a full picture of each place and character. That’s a neat trick to pull off!

Alison and 1 other person liked Norma's review of Carina (Roma Nova #1.5):
Carina by Alison Morton
""Cloak and daggers."
Author Alison Morton is a self confessed 'Roman nut', and she is not alone. But instead of writing stories set within the frontiers of the, sadly, no longer existent Roman Empire of old, she has reimagined history and developed..." Read more of this review »
