Simon Scarrow lebt im englischen Norfolk, wo er als College-Dozent Geschichte lehrt. Als ein grosser Verehrer der Romane von Cornwell, Forester und O'Brian und ausgewiesener Kenner des Römischen Reichs beschloss Scarrow eines Tages, das zu schreiben, was er selbst gerne lesen würde: packende Abenteuerromane vor dem Hintergrund der römischen Invasion in Britannien im Jahre 43 n. Chr.
