Even before she pulled on her first set of combats, it never occurred to Alison Morton that women couldn’t serve their country in the armed forces. After six years in a Territorial Army special communications regiment she left as a captain, having done all sorts of interesting things she can’t talk about, even now…
But something else fuels her writing… Fascinated by mosaics at Ampurias (Spain) created by the complex, powerful Roman civilisation, she wondered what a Roman society would be like if run by strong women. What if a tiny part of the Roman Empire had survived into the modern era? And what part could it have played in world history on its way?
Years later, after Alison made a detour to bag an MA in history, the Roma Nova alternate history thrillers with tough heroines are the result. The first three, INCEPTIO, PERFIDITAS and SUCCESSIO are set in the 21st century; AURELIA goes back to the 1960s and INSURRECTIO (pub. April 2016) to the early 1980s. Awarded the coveted BRAG Medallion, the first four books have now been acquired by Audible. AURELIA is currently shortlisted for the 2016 Historical Novel Society Indie Award.
Alison is represented by Blake Friedman Literary Agency for overseas and ancillary rights. She now lives in France with her husband and writes, tends her Roman herb garden and drinks wine.
