More About the Author

I was, for over 35 years, an English teacher. After running a successful Educational Consultancy company for four years I decided to return to an early passion, writing. As I love the works of C.S Forester, Simon Scarrow, Alexander Kent and Bernard Cornwell I wrote my Roman historical fiction novels. Although there will be more historical novels to come, I have written a novel aimed at 10-15 year olds, Great Granny's Ghost; I have been touring schools which have purchased class sets working with young people on the themes in the book. There are now 10 books in the Sword of Cartimandua series which cover the Roman occupation of northern Britannia from 69 AD to 123 AD. I have also now written a trilogy set around the time of the Battle of Hastings. The first on in the series is Housecarl. My next two projects are: a trilogy set in 6th Century Britain called the Wolf Warriors- the first title is Saxon Dawn with four more titles; my second project is a travelogue called Backpacking at 63- by train to Istanbul.I have just published 2 books about the American Civil War loosely based on the exploits of the Grey Ghost, John Mosby. My books are now owned and published by Sword Books Ltd, My website is

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down 1 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am reading now one per week minimum, as these books are captivating, as you continue to see characters grow, die and new ones appear on the scene as the books so far have covered over sixty years.

Out of all roman historical fiction and I have read over 75 in the past few years, these are my favourites
