Coming Soon – My Family and Other Romans

I’m so excited to finally be able to share details of my next middle-grade novel, My Family and Other Romans, released 8th June by Chicken House Books.

Just look at the gorgeous cover by Flavia Sorrentino! Flavia also did the cover for my debut novel, Princess BMX, and I was so happy when I heard she was up for working on this one too – especially given she’s a genuine Roman! You can find out more about Flavia here. As for what’s inside the glorious cover jacket, here’s the blurb:

Silvia just wants to fit in. So, being catapulted back to Ancient Rome and finding out her mum is a war goddess is not part of the plan. As for the rest of the family – her sister is a cyclops, her uncle is building an army, and her role-play obsessed dad is now a lava soldier.

And to top it all, the Romans seem to think she’s some sort of chosen one – the fate of the world resting on her shoulders. Seriously, this is worse than double maths! Can Silvia embrace her differences and sort this mess out?

· A laugh-out-loud family caper full of excitement and heart.

· A time-travel adventure – with a LARPing twist

· Perfect for ages 8 and up

I had such a great time writing this book. I loved immersing myself in the Roman world and had such fun creating the characters. And I’m one hundred percent certain none of you are going to guess the ending!

If you’d like to pre-order a copy you can do so at any good bookshop or via one of the links below:
