Carol Ashby
Author of the Light in the Empire Series

Carol Ashby has been a professional writer for most of her life, but her articles and books were about lasers and compound semiconductors (think the electronics that make cell phones, laser pointers, and LED displays work). Now she is having a wonderful time creating stories about human conflict and difficult friendships that grow into love as characters discover their own faith in Christ. Her fascination with the Roman Empire was born during her first middle-school Latin class. A research career in New Mexico inspires her to get every historical detail right so she can spin stories that make her readers feel like they’re living under the Caesars themselves.
