About the Author

Vikings were the heroes of my first historical novel at age 11. They soon lost out to Romans, thanks to "Ben Hur" and "Spartacus." After earning a Phi Beta Kappa creative award in college for an early draft of ROMA AMOR, I spent many years of research and revision developing the story into the struggle between fathers and sons that it wanted to be. It's a joy to immerse myself in the lives of first-century Romans-and a definite change from my day job as a professional copywriter. I live on the coast of Maine with a native-born Viking and two cats.
