Bio: Despite researching 1930s Germany for my MA in history, I'm a deep-steeped 'Roman nut'. Reading a *lot* of Roman fiction led me to wondering what if women had run the Roman Empire? Or a tiny remnant of it that survived into the present? Thus the alternate history world of Roma Nova sprang to life where a group of pagan dissident Romans left Italy in AD 395 after the last Theodosian decree and founded a colony in the northern mountains. Their descendants retained core Roman values and customs but through lack of numbers to defend their small state, women have always fought side-by-side with the men. INCEPTIO, PERFIDITAS and SUCCESSIO feature Carina, a hidden heir who becomes an efficient Praetorian officer. In AURELIA, INSURRECTIO and RETALIO in 1960s-early 1980s, Aurelia, a blood-and-bone Roma Novan, battles the usurper Caius Tellus. CARINA is a novella set between INCEPTIO and PERFIDITAS and ROMA NOVA EXTRA a collection of short stories set between AD 370 and the present.
