Friends, Romans, Murderers with Jane Finnis

May 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“Friends, Romans, Murderers…” Jane Finnis, who writes the Aurelia Marcella mysteries, talks about life (and death) in Roman Britain, and explores the pleasures and pitfalls of writing historical mysteries. Admission free: all welcome.


Jane’s Aurelia Marcella novels tell of life and death in first-century Roman Britain. The turbulent province of Britannia on the very edge of the Roman Empire makes a good background for murder and mayhem. They all feature innkeeper Aurelia as a reluctant sleuth.
They are published in the USA and Canada by Poisoned Pen Press and in the UK, Australia and New Zealand by Head of Zeus. They are available in print and as ebooks: the choice is yours.

You can buy them individually in all ebook formats, and there’s a box set of the first three of Aurelia’s adventures in a single ebook collection, published by Head of Zeus in London.
