"Will we really walk together in the Realm of the Dead?"
"Very soon now, my love."
"How will I find you?"
"I will find you. Just sit somewhere beautiful and wait."
"A nicer fate than eternal sleep."
"Oh, yes. We will be together."

Colleen McCullough
1 June 1937 – 29 January 2015

It is with sadness that Nova Romans learn that the world famous author, Colleen McCullough, who created the extremely popular and acclaimed "Masters of Rome" series, died today. For many of us, her Masters of Rome series was the gateway through which we entered the world of ancient Rome, and chose to stay and learn about its history, people and culture. Several Nova Roman citizens are here because they were drawn by her excellent books of utmost historical accuracy, authenticity and detail. Nova Romans citizens honor this fine author as a kind of friend to our Res Publica, ever so much because she was involved in Nova Roma 10 years ago and served Nova Roma as one of the members of the Jury of the Certamen Petronianum, a Roman Historical Novel Writing Contest, which means that Nova Roma had a special connection to her.

She will be sorely missed.
May she find peace and eternal joy among her ancestors!
