Historical fiction set in the ancient world

HNRCover_May 2016I was delighted to receive the quarterly jewel, the Historical Novel Review, May 2016 edition, published by the Historical Novel Society.  Even more delighted as my writing friend Judith Starkston had written a terrific article about ancient world themed historical fiction.

She asked several authors for contributions – Maggie Anton, Geraldine Brooks, Gary Corby, Ruth Downie, Stephanie Dray, Margaret George, Libbie Hawker, Tim Leach, Rebecca Lochlann, Alison Morton, Kate Quinn, Elisabeth Storrs and Stephanie Thornton.

I was honoured to be included!

“Alison Morton carries an ingrained knowledge of Roman life forward into a Roman colonia that survives into the modern world.”
