Caroline Lawrence‘s historical novels for young readers have sold over a million copies in the UK. Her Roman Mysteries series (Orion) was dramatised by the BBC, and in 2009 she won the Classical Association Prize for a ‘significant contribution to the public understanding of Classics’. An acclaimed sequence of historical novels set in the American West earned her an Edgar nomination in 2014. Caroline is a sought-after speaker and devotes two full months to school events every year.
