About Q. V. Hunter

Q. V. Hunter is the author of twelve novels, including six Embers of Empire stories of espionage in the Roman Empire of the mid-fourth century. "The Burning Stakes," the latest exciting tale in The Embers of Empire series will be released in early 2016.

Hunter lives in a Jurassien village which was once a lookout point for Roman soldiers posted to Julius Caesar's colony Noviodunum. They were assigned the resettlement and administration of Celtic Helvetic 'barbarians' defeated in the Battle of Bibracte in 58 BC.

Hunter is married to a descendant of Alemannic refugees of the Roman Empire. They have three adult children, all of whom managed to study Latin and Greek in high school before the Cantonal authorities slashed their Classics budget. Contact the author c/o Eyes and Ears Editorial,
