Caroline Lawrence

Million-selling author Caroline Lawrence writes detective stories with the double aim of entertaining children and teaching them. Combining fast-moving plots with historical accuracy means her history mystery stories are beloved of children, parents and teachers. In 2009, Caroline won the Classical Association Prize for her Roman Mysteries series, which comprises over 20 books and inspired a glossy BBC TV series in the UK. In 2011 Caroline launched a second historical detective series, the Western Mysteries, staring P.K. Pinkerton: a 12-year-old doubly orphaned detective who has trouble "reading people". The Case of the Deadly Desperados was the Sunday New York Times Editors' Choice in February 2012. "I want to know everything about the past, especially the exciting things. Also the sounds, smells, sights and tastes. I write historical novels because nobody has invented a Time Machine. And I write for kids because 11 is my inner age." Caroline is also writing a spin-off series of Roman books for readers aged 7+, starting with The Sewer Demon Here are the Roman Mystery novels in series order: The Thieves Of Ostia: The Roman Mysteries 1 The Secrets Of Vesuvius: The Roman Mysteries 2 The Pirates Of Pompeii: The Roman Mysteries 3 The Assassins Of Rome: The Roman Mysteries 4 The Dolphins Of Laurentum: The Roman Mysteries 5 The Twelve Tasks Of Flavia Gemina:The Roman Mysteries 6 The Enemies Of Jupiter: The Roman Mysteries 7 The Gladiators From Capua: The Roman Mysteries 8 The Colossus Of Rhodes: The Roman Mysteries 9 The Fugitive From Corinth: The Roman Mysteries 10 The Sirens Of Surrentum: The Roman Mysteries 11 The Charioteer Of Delphi: The Roman Mysteries 12 The Slave-Girl From Jerusalem: The Roman Mysteries 13 The Beggar Of Volubilis: The Roman Mysteries 14 The Scribes From Alexandria: The Roman Mysteries 15 The Prophet From Ephesus: The Roman Mysteries 16 The Man From Pomegranate Street: The Roman Mysteries 17 Here are the mini-mysteries: The Legionary From Londinium And Other Mini-Mysteries Trimalchio's Feast And Other Mini-Mysteries Plus quiz books, omnibus editions, a travel book and a treasury: The First Roman Mysteries Quiz Book The Second Roman Mysteries Quiz Book The Roman Mysteries Omnibus (Books 1-3) (B) (Feb) The Roman Mysteries Omnibus (Books 4-6) (B) From Ostia To Alexandria With Flavia Gemina The Roman Mysteries Treasury
