Praise for Rubicon:

"Rubicon is a declaration of intent to intrigue, inspire and entertain. For me, this collection of stories extols the camaraderie that exists amongst the historical fiction bother and sisterhood. It perfectly encapsulates a shared passion for the subject of Rome in all its abundance and varied manifestations, taking the reader on a guided tour through the familiar and the strange. Leading us wide-eyed through a genre which has never lost its lustre. This is the fiction equivalent of a box of chocolates, a celebration of diverse Rome stories drawing upon all the riches of that most extraordinary and enduring of civilisations. It is a treasure trove of tales, showcasing a wealth of talent.I have been entertained by authors whose work I know and love, and I've discovered new voices too, writers whom I look forward to getting to know better. Indeed, if the purpose of this collection is to delight, distract and to whet the reader's appetite, leaving us eager for more, it is a resounding success.Rubicon is a rare treat which I thoroughly enjoyed. I don't know what the official collective noun for Roman short stories is, but in this case I think it's a triumph." Giles Kristian.
