Now, we’re getting somewhere…!

I enjoy writing all my books, of course, but this one in particular made me look forward to getting up in the morning and heading for my desk. Although it was a logistical nightmare to plot and write! Now we're getting further into the saga, many of the characters you've heard of before are starting

The Latest Scandal Hits The Shelves

Book 7 of the Scandalous Scions series was released a few days ago. I've mentioned before and elsewhere how much fun I had writing this particular book.  It was one of those bonus books that authors sometimes talk about, when the story "falls out" of them.

The More Things Change…

  The Romans fought a lot of wars, including a particularly grisly series of wars called the Punic Wars, against Carthage, in North Africa.
