Interview with Lindsay Davis
Your first novel that you wrote set in Rome was The Course of Honour which is actually the true love story between Vespasian and his mistress Antonia Caenis. What was it about them that made you want to write about them?
1. I needed to pay the mortgage
2. Nobody else was writing about the Romans
3. Theirs is a damn good story, with several emotional twists, what is clearly true love and a happy ending.
