About me

I’m the author of six mysteries featuring Roman Army medic and reluctant sleuth, Gaius Petreius Ruso, and his British partner Tilla. In their latest adventure, TABULA RASA, Ruso is tending the builders of Hadrian’s Wall. When rumours start to spread that there’s a body buried in the Wall and a young boy disappears, the discontent of the locals threatens to erupt into violent rebellion.

I’m fascinated by the tensions that must have existed between occupiers and occupied in Roman Britain, and by the fact that although most of the characters are long forgotten, the setting still lies beneath our feet.

When not writing or researching the Ruso novels, my happiest moments are spent wielding an archaeological trowel.

Hi Ulla, No worries, I haven’t put any restrictions on who can enter or where they have to be. Good luck!
