Alison Morton

Alison Morton has built her writing career on writing alternative history thrillers. Her award-winning Roma Nova series features tough but compassionate heroines who challenge the bad guys but are, despite their personal failures, true to their new Roman world.

Alison blends her deep love of Roman history with six years’ military service and a life of reading crime, historical, adventure and thriller fiction. On the way, she collected a BA in modern languages and an MA in history.

Now she continues to write thrillers and has recently branched out into a contemporary crime setting with Double Identity, the first of a planned series, to be followed by Double Pursuit in Autumn 2021. When not writing, Alison cultivates a Roman herb garden and drinks wine in France with her husband.
