I am Richard Vero, the writer of the Gods of Romana Books. I am also a poet and an artist. You can find my books and poetry on every amazon site worldwide. You can check the Gods of Romana Books out on: www.thegodsofromana.jimdo.com I was brought up in the 60's, a time of peaceful rebellion. A time that changed society to something better. I did not conform then, nor do I now. I still rebel. I am not ready for the slippers in front of the fire yet! I still wear Doc Martins and New Rocks. I write,draw,make models and listen to music(I used to be in bands). I love everything Gothic and Medieval. Especially Architecture and jewellery. Also Victorian Clothing.I like the countryside. Rain,Storms,and Darkness. I have a disabled son(who is severely autistic) and whose arrival changed my life. He is my inspiration. I still dream. Dream of Love and understanding. Something that I find is sadly lacking in this world.
