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 http://www.griffhosker.com/.

Tries hard and not badly written - but ultimately a poor mans version of any of the Robert Low's 'Oathsworn' series without any of the believable grit that accompanies them. Author also seems to suffer from some sort of Anglophobia throughout the text - constantly emphasising how tough the Picts, Welsh, Scots are whilst belittling the Anglo Saxon people's despite the fact that the 'Anglian' and 'Saxon' kingdoms of what would one day be England were far richer and to some extent more organised militarily when it came to an external threat. All in all not a bad read but as mentioned their are better books written about the same genre out there.

Griff Hosker writes Brill books you can smell the action and hear the clash of arms. I have read a few of his books and except for odd printing mistakes ( maybe caused by being emailed) never lets the action slip
