About the author
Angela Meredith is a freelance journalist and content writer. She is a former winner of the Verity Bargate Award for new playwrights and a BBC-commissioned screenwriter. Her work has received rehearsed readings at Soho Theatre and Unity Theatre, Liverpool. Her first novel ROME ALONE was short-listed for the Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook’s New Novel Centenary Award.
ROME ALONE SERIES
She is a frequent flyer to Amsterdam and Italy, both of which have been the main inspiration for her writing to date. She likes to travel solo, explore new places and get to the beating heart of destinations.
Her novels combine crime, history and romance. ROME ALONE was originally written as a holiday read, as she wanted to find a novel long enough to last for an entire holiday, so decided to write one during a trip to Rome. She began writing ROME ALONE in 2005 but did not publish it until 2015!
ROME AGAIN, VERONA ALONE and VERONA AGAIN were written and published in 2015-2016, 2017 and 2018.
In 2019, ROME AT LAST and VERONA AT LAST will be published. They are the final novels in the series.
Angela always completes the sequel before finishing a novel – the final book in the series VERONA AT LAST is already complete and the prequel ROME AT LAST is now underway. She researches her work meticulously and enjoys the challenge of creating characters and plots that span several decades and novels.
Her own interests always inform her writing. She enjoys Ancient History and World War II history and is also fascinated by crime – but in a good way.
Her hobbies and interests are music, history and genealogy – her own personal genealogical research pre-dates 4000BC. She has Italian ancestry dating back to the Roman era, including ancestors in both Rome and Verona; and also has Romany gypsy forebears slightly closer to home!
She draws on all the influences in her life to shape her plots and create well-rounded characters who have longevity.

All authors need encouragement and I would just like to take the opportunity to thank a few people who have turned out to be more supportive of my work than I ever imagined. So for HJW and SW, as well as MM, thanks for taking the time – your input into my literary life has been both an unexpected and extraordinary experience! Keep reading – it is hard to be original in a crowded market and there are no shortcuts.
Buon viaggio tutti!
