…and thank you for visiting.*
I’m the author of a series of mysteries featuring Roman Army medic and reluctant sleuth, Gaius Petreius Ruso. His sixth adventure, TABULA RASA, is out now – if you glance to the right you’ll see the cover.
Here’s what’s inside:
Ruso and his wife, Tilla, are back in the borderlands of Britannia, tending the builders of Hadrian’s Great Wall. The local Britons are still smarting from the failure of a recent rebellion and now, having been forced to move off their land, they are distinctly on edge.
Then Ruso’s incompetent clerk, Candidus, goes missing, and soldiers ransack the nearby farms looking for him. When a local boy also vanishes, tensions between the Britons and the Romans threaten to erupt into fresh violence.

This is where you can find out that an author’s life is not as exciting as that of her characters, and below are the latest musings on the blog.

*apologies for the fact that this post seems to make no sense. It used to live at the top of the page, but now the website’s been redesigned, it’s been relegated. I’ve left it here because it would be a shame to lose the comments.
