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)

There are elements from my own life in the military scenes, but I can't really comment further.

Campus Martius Rome, AD 300 (reconstruction)
