Riassunto: Based on the true life story of Britain's first warrior queen, Boudicca's Revenge is a brutal saga of war, betrayal, conquest and love set in the untamed wilderness of ancient Britannia. Stripped by Nero of her lands and title, her young daughters raped and held hostage, Boudicca vows revenge and rallies the largest tribal army ever to face the might of Rome. A cunning weave of myth and magic, Boudicca's Revenge is also the story of Marcus Maecena, a Roman centurion who must choose between his love for a warrior queen and his loyalty to the legions.
About the Author: Roxanne Gregory is a journalist, screenwriter and former editor, currently living with her family, and a diverse assortment of felines, on a little piece of Sunshine Coast paradise.
A nominee for the 1997 Media Human Rights Award, she has several writing awards and most recently placed in the top ten per cent of entrants for the Nicholl Screenwriting Fellowship. Boudicca's Revenge was a 1998 finalist in the Chesterfield Writer's Film Project. Her fiction and non-fiction stories have appeared in a number of anthologies.
