Alison Morton grew up in West Kent and worked as a civil servant in the City of London, dealt in coins and antique jewellery, head-hunted chief executives, served as a Territorial Army officer and owned a translation company. She completed a BA in French, German and Economics and thirty years later an MA in History. She now lives in France with her husband. A 'Roman nut' since age 11, she has visited sites throughout Europe including the alma mater, Rome. But it was the mosaics at Ampurias (Spain) that triggered her wondering what a Roman society would be like if run by women - A wordsmith much of her life - playwright (aged 7), article writer, local magazine editor and qualified translator - she came to novel writing in reaction to a particularly dire film: 'I could do better that that,' she whispered in the darkened cinema. Three months later, she had completed the first draft of INCEPTIO. Pursuing her interest in women's history and a nod to her own military service, Alison published a history eBook Military or Civilians? The curious anomaly of the German Women's Auxiliary Services during the Second World War in March 2012.
