Today, my fifth Roma Nova thriller is out in the world. Wow! I say that because when I published the first in 2013, I did not imagine that I would have written four more within the next three years. Sometimes I scare myself…
It’s a mixture of sadness and relief to close the gate at the end of a long road of writing, reviewing, editing, revising, honing, tweaking, deciding about cover image, format and page order; receiving encouragement, fab endorsements and advice.
And later today, INSURRECTIO will make its bow to the world when it’s launched (with wine!) at the London Book Fair at the SilverWood Books stand 1G45.
So here is Aurelia Mitela, twelve years after we closed the pages at the end of AURELIA. She’s climbed the career ladder and is now an assistant foreign minister. She’s gained in gravitas, authority and experience.
Like any dedicated bureaucrat at that level she works long, hard hours, but despite the responsibility she’s happy; her daughter Marina has grown into a carefree young woman and Aurelia’s love, Miklós, lives with her in passionate companionship.
But by Mars, that contented life is going to be disrupted. A gathering crisis, fostered by her nemesis, that even Aurelia seems powerless to stop is going to erupt in their faces and threaten to destroy Roma Nova for good.
