I’m so excited about my newest volume in the Light in the Empire series that is now available at Amazon! It’s hard to say which I enjoyed writing more: Forgiven, set in Roman Judea, or Blind Ambition, set in Roman Germany and Rome. It’s too hard to say goodbye to the characters after spending so much time bringing their story to the page…so I’m not going to!

Blind Ambition is finished, but I’ve already started the sequel set 8 years later. Two of the characters who are only teens in Blind Ambition have grown into young men and get themselves into no end of trouble when…(sorry, not going to give away the plot yet). Find what the future has in store for Galen, Otto, Valeria, Decimus, and Tiberius when Faithful is published in 2018.

If you’re curious about Publius and the fate of his grown children, Lucius, Titus, and Claudia, stay tuned for The Legacy, which will be published Fall of 2017.
