Stephen Dando-Collins: First Citizen of Ancient Rome

Dando-Collins is doing for ancient Rome and its characters in novels what Rome did for TV viewers – only Dando-Collins has taken in many steps further thanks to his tireless and extensive research and an ingenious writing style that takes the reader inside the day to day existences of everyone from Julius Caesar to the average Roman citizen. I had the wonderful opportunity of asking Mr. Dando-Collins about his work recently – about his fascination for the period and why he thinks others seem interested in what went on in ancient Rome as well.
