Welcome…August 8, 2014
…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, has just been published in North America (tho’ friends in the UK will have to wait a bit longer). 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. Having been forced to move off their land, the Britons are distinctly on edge and are still smarting from the failure of a recent rebellion that claimed many lives.
Then Ruso’s incompetent clerk, Candidus, goes missing, and soldiers ransack the nearby farms looking for him. Tilla’s tentative friendship with a native family turns to anger and disappointment over this latest outrage and when a local boy vanishes, tension between the Britons and the Romans threatens to erupt.

Events are listed on this page, but if we can’t meet in person, you can always contact me here. 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.
