Robert Fabbri was born in Geneva in 1961. He was educated at Christ's Hospital School, Horsham and London University. He worked for twenty-five years as an assistant director in the film and television industries.
Having had his fair share of long, cold nights standing in the rain in muddy fields and unbearably hot days in deserts or stuffy sound stages he decided to start writing.
Being a life-long ancient war-gamer with a collection of over 3,500 hand-painted 25mm lead soldiers and a lover of Roman Historical Fiction the subject matter was obvious.
His first novel, Vespasian: Tribune of Rome, was published in May 2011 by Corvus, the genre imprint of Atlantic. The second book, Rome's Executioner, will be published in May 2012. With the third book, The False God of Rome, already complete he has just embarked on book four which has a working title of Rome's Fallen Eagle.
There will be seven books in the series as well as spin-off short stories revolving around Vespasian's friend Magnus and his crossroads brethren; the first of these, The Crossroads Brotherhood, was published on Kindle on 25th December 2011.
