Jodie Lane is an avid amateur historian, combining her love of travel and adventure with fascinating stories from the past. Brisbane based, she studied a variety of modern history at the University of Queensland, and loves to read a wide range of historical and science fiction.
Her travels have taken her all over the world: she has lived and taught English in China and Romania, backpacked through Europe and South America, and holidayed in the Middle East, Central America, South East Asia, New Zealand and South Africa. She speaks basic Spanish as a second language and her sport of choice is aerial tissu—training with the Vulcana Women’s Circus in Brisbane—she is currently having a hiatus as she raises a couple of small humans.
The Siege of Masada is the first novel in the “Turning Points” series—a time travel adventures series visiting pivotal historical events and exploring an exciting new future for humanity. Transylvanian Knight and To Kill An Emperor are books 2 & 3 in the series, with Renaissance Woman and Heart and Stomach of a Queen due out in 2018 & 2019 respectively.
“The Job” and “Naughty Zombies” are additional works, found in the Australian Pen anthology Obliquity: Stories of a Tilted Perspective, with “The Time-Traveller’s Date” (A Turning Points Short Story) in Australian Pen 2: Futurevision.
