I'm a Londoner born and bred but have lived for over 20 years now in the town of Rugby, where the football game of the same name originated. I'm married, with two grown-up children.

I've always been fascinated by history, particularly the early mediaeval period, and was prompted to write my first novel after reading one so poorly researched that I felt I just had to do better.

My first book, "The Gift and the Promise", set at the time of the Norman Conquest, was published originally by Piatkus but is now available in e-book format, as is my second novel "A Masterless Man" which follows the fortunes of the direct descendants of the characters in "The Gift and the Promise" over a hundred years later.

It may well be that future books will see this family's progress through the centuries to the present day.
