I am a recently retired Clinical Laboratory Scientist living in San Francisco. I am happily divorced and have one adult daughter.
I have been an avid reader of historical fiction from the time I learned to read. Some of my favorite authors are Colleen MacCollough, Mary Reynolds, Robert Graves,Lisa See, Geraldine Brooks, Robert Harris,Philippa Gregory and Anita Diamant among others. Last December I self-published my first novel, The Death of Carthage. It deals with the Second and Third Punic wars and is narrated by three fictional characters whose lives are intertwined with such historical personages as Scipio Africanus, Cato the Elder, Lucius Aemilius Paullus, Scipio Minor and Polybius. I am planning to write a fictional account of the life of Quintus Fabius Maximus and am also working on a book about the Gracchi.
