About me

Shauna Roberts lives on the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. She is the author of the historical novels Like Mayflies in a Stream and Claimed by the Enemy, both set in ancient Mesopotamia. Claimed by the Enemy won the 2014 National Readers Choice Award for Novel with Romantic Elements as well as the 2015 Romancing the Novel Published Author Contest in the “Ancient/Medieval/Renaissance” category.

Roberts also writes romance, fantasy, and science fiction. She is a 2009 graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Workshop, and she received the Speculative Literature Foundation’s Older Writers Grant in 2011.

After a long break from writing due first to illness and then to a cross-country move, she is planning new novels set in Akkadian-era Mesopotamia as well as a historical Western romance.
