Faith L. Justice

author_pic1-2012_colorFaith has worked as a lifeguard, paralegal, systems analyst, human resources executive, college professor, freelance writer and novelist. It’s not that she can’t keep a job; it’s that there always seems to be something new to learn.  She writes in her historic land-marked home “The Suffragette House” in Brooklyn, New York where she lives with her husband, daughter, and the required gaggle of cats. For fun, Faith likes to dig in the dirt—her garden and various archaeological sites.

Her debut novel Selene of Alexandria was a finalist in the Global eBook Awards in 2011 and is available in all the usual places. Another novel, Twilight Empress: A Novel of Imperial Rome, won first place in the Historical category in the Maryland Writer’s Association contest and will come out in 2017 from Raggedy Moon Books. Faith is currently working on sequels to Twilight Empress and Sword of the Gladiatrix
