To date I have written seven novels. I do not consider myself a genre writer, that is, I have not limited myself to any particular literary category. I get ideas for stories, lots of them, and they seem to reflect my interests, which are themselves broad and far ranging. Below is a list of my books. If you would like to know more about any particular title then please click on the link and this will take you to the worlds that I have created in much greater detail.

The Sorrow Song Trilogy recounts the three great battles of 1066.

It begins with The War Wolf and the Battle of Fulford Gate.

For Rapture of Ravens recounts the greatest Saxon victory against their ancient enemies, the Vikings, at the Battle of Stamford Bridge.

The trilogy closes with The Blade’s Fell Blow and the Battle of Sentlache Ridge near the town of Hastings.
