Ian Ross Book and Novel

Ian Ross - Author


Ian Ross was born in England and studied painting before turning to writing fiction. He has travelled widely and worked as a bookseller, tutor and university lecturer while developing his writing abilities. A year in Italy teaching English and exploring the ruins of empire reawakened his early love for ancient history, and he returned to the UK with growing fascination for the period known as late antiquity. He has been researching and writing about the later Roman world and its army for over a decade, and his interests combine an obsessive regard for accuracy and detail with a devotion to the craft of storytelling. He lives in Bath, keeps unsociable hours and has never owned a television or a car.

If you like Ian Ross you might also like to read books by Simon Scarrow, Anthony Riches and Ben Kane.
