Meet the author

I’m an author of historical fiction (Early English, Vikings and the British Isles as a whole before the Norman Conquest, as well as three twentieth-century mysteries) and fantasy (Viking age/dragon themed), born in the old Mercian kingdom at some point since the end of 1066. Raised in the shadow of a strange little building and told from a very young age that it housed the bones of long-dead kings of Mercia, it’s little wonder that my curiosity in the early English ran riot. I can only blame my parents!

I like to write. You’ve been warned!

I’m a member of the HWA (Historical Writers Association) and the CWA (Crime Writers Association).

  1. Hello! I am now reading Wolf of Mercia. I’m at the part where Icel is in Wessex’s fort. It looks like they will be leaving the fort and going to join up with the king. Poor Icel, I feel for him! If this was a movie I’d have my hands covering my eyes. Instead, I’m taking my time getting back to the book. Maybe I’m weird.

    I did this with my daughter’s book before it was published by a swindler. I’m not sure what she’s doing with it now.

    I know I will be reading more of your books. I really like reading about Vikings, as well.

    1. Yay. I’m so glad you’re enjoying reading about Icel. And yes, I think there are parts when I wouldn’t be looking as well:)

      Sorry to hear about your daughter’s book. Fingers crossed she’s able to move forward with it by taking a different route!
