Elisabeth Storrs has long had a passion for the history, myths and legends of the ancient world. She graduated from University of Sydney in Arts Law, having studied Classics. Her curiosity piqued by an Etruscan sarcophagus depicting a couple embracing for eternity, she discovered the little known story of the struggle between Etruscan Veii and Republican Rome and the inspiration to write the TALES OF ANCIENT ROME series. Elisabeth lives with her husband and two sons in Sydney, Australia, and over the years has worked as a solicitor, corporate lawyer and corporate governance consultant. She is one of the founders of Historical Novel Society Australasia. Feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org Elisabeth considers herself a 'hybrid' author who was traditionally published in Australia, then gained a readership in the international historical fiction community through self-publishing her A TALE OF ANCIENT ROME series. This led her to securing an international publishing contract with Lake Union Publishers. Researched and written over a period of fifteen years, A TALE OF ANCIENT ROME vividly describe the world of Etruria, a fantastic civilization ultimately destroyed by Rome but which heavily influenced its conqueror's culture from republican into imperial times. There have been very few novels that have explored the world of the Etruscans and the early Roman Republic which makes the series unusually engrossing reads for historical fiction lovers. THE WEDDING SHROUD was endorsed by Ursula Le Guin and judged runner-up in the 2012 Sharp Writ Book Awards for general fiction. THE GOLDEN DICE, was endorsed by Ben Kane and is a first place category winner in the 2014 Chaucer Awards. The third book, CALL TO JUNO, was endorsed by Kate Quinn and was selected as an Editor's Choice in the HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW in 2016.Read more Read less
