I’m Faith L. Justice, a history junkie and science geek who writes historical novels and SF/F short stories. My debut novel Selene of Alexandria is now available in print from Amazon (US, UK, Canada & Germany), Barnes and Noble, Booklooker.com (US and UK) or any online bookstore; also available as an ebook in Kindle (US, UK , Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy), Nook, Sony and all other ebook formats.
One of the delights of writing historical novels is the research. I relish digging up the odd fact, uncovering a fascinating story or illuminating a page of history for readers. One of the frustrations of being a novelist is not being able to use all that wonderful research—at least not directly. Many juicy bits get left in the research folders or excised to the outtakes files. This section of my site will provide an outlet for my inner scholar. I’ll post content about the history behind the fiction, history/archaeology in the news, reviews (books/TV/movies), and interviews with historical novel writers. I love comments, so please leave them! Or check out my website www.faithljustice.com and send me an email.
I’ve been writing guest blogs, as well. If interested, you can check them out:

Like most bloggers, I obsess over my “views” and track which articles are most popular. Hands down, anything about Hypatia draws the most readers and generates the most discussion. As a favor to my readers and Hypatia fans, I put all the material in one place. Articles from my website, this blog and guest posts are now collected in a free ebook available at Smashwords.com. Even if you don’t have an ereader, you can download the book in HTML, PDF or RTF and read on your computer. Check it out and let me know what you think!
