Anna Lowenstein became interested in the Romans when she visited Italy over thirty years ago, and was awestruck by her first view of the Pantheon. She wondered what impression it must have made on a barbarian who had never seen a stone building before, let alone architecture as magnificent as the houses and temples of Rome. That was the moment when she had the idea for her first novel "The Stone City". Not long afterwards she moved to Italy and came to live in the Roman countryside close to the ancient town of Palestrina, which appears in this novel under its Latin name Praeneste. Since then she has written a second novel, "Death of an Artist", also set in Ancient Rome, and is now working on a third.
