Mark Adderley was born in the railway town of Crewe, England. Like many of his contemporaries, he grew up devouring the novels of C. S. Lewis and, later, Ian Fleming and J. R. R. Tolkien. It wasn’t until he was studying at Cartrefle College in Wales, however, that he discovered the passion for the Arthurian legend that has now lasted almost a quarter of a century.

During his studies in Wales, Mark also met an American woman, Adrianne, whom he married. Moving to America, he got, in not very rapid succession, four children and a PhD in medieval literature from the University of South Florida. He has lived in Florida, Georgia, Montana, Missouri, Wyoming and South Dakota. He is now one of the directors of the Via Nova Catholic Education Program

If I don't write anything during that hour, I finish at the end of the hour anyway and go back to it the next day. I try to write, even if it's rubbish (it frequently is).

Thank you--it's pretty good so far. I'm trying to get used to this Goodreads thing. It seems to be very valuable for marketing books. How are things going with your book?
