SIMON TURNEY Caligula loving brother. Reluctant Emperor. Tortured soul.

Forget everything you think you know about the Emperor Caligula. If you’ve never heard of him before, then meet the real Caligula.

Here is the story you’ve never heard. Basing his novel on new academic research, Simon Turney tells Caligula’s story from the perspective of his youngest sister, Livilla.

When their family is thrust unexpectedly into the imperial succession, whatever peace they knew vanishes as they become pawns in other people’s power plays. Caligula is forced to keep changing in order to survive in this dangerous world. But as emotional blows and betrayals rock his foundation, will there be any trace of the boy left in the man he becomes?

A born and bred Yorkshireman with a love of country, history and architecture, simon Turney spends most of his rare free time travelling around ancient sites, writing, researching the ancient world and reading voraciously.

NICKY PELLEGRINO A Year at Hotel Gondola a woman swaps her far-flung travels for her biggest adventure yet – a relationship. Perfect for fans of Jo Thomas.

Kat has never wanted to live a small life. She’s an adventurer, a food writer who travels the world visiting far-flung places and eating unusual things. Now she is about to embark on her biggest adventure yet – a relationship. She has fallen in love with an Italian man and is moving to live with him in Venice, where she will help him run his small guesthouse. Kat has lined up a book deal and will write about the first year of her new adventure; the food she eats, the recipes she collects and the man she is going to make a life with. But as Kat ought to know by now, adventures never go the way you expect them to.

Nicky Pellegrino works as a journalist and edits a women’s magazine. Her Italian heritage and passion for food is the inspiration behind Nicky’s delicious novels. She hoards her annual leave so that she can return to Italy to meet up with family and eat the best mozzarella while researching her books.
