Steven Saylor

Steven Saylor has had a lifelong fascination with ancient Rome, from the drive-in movies of his boyhood (Cleopatra, Spartacus, Ben-Hur) to his degree in history from the University of Texas, and through his appearances on the History Channel as an expert on Roman politics and life. He is the author of nine previous volumes in the Roma Sub Rosa series, most recently A Mist of Prophecies, as well as the mystery thrillers A Twist at the End and Have You Seen Dawn? He divides his time between Berkeley, California and Austin, Texas.
