When not swinging an axe at Viking re-enactment events, A. H. Johnstone is busy experiencing silent dismay over the lack of honest pillaging in the world. They would dearly like to see an end to poverty and abuse and has wielded their fundraising sword in support of ‘Responsible Charity’ several times.

It is their fond hope that education will become free for all as the opportunities for Viking raids are slim and don’t offer much of a career choice for modern school leavers.

I read, and I have reading time blocked into my daily schedule.

There is no point sitting in front of a blank screen waiting for inspiration to hit you. It will never happen and you will only frustrate yourself. As a writer you need to be proactive, you know your genre but above all, you, need to keep fuelling that creative fire. If you don't feed it, it will simply go out. So go down those rabbit holes, take a short course in something, read outside your comfort zone as well as inside it, and keep abreast of current affairs. Inspiration is there but you will have to look for it(less)

It turns out that I am a bit of a project squirrel so here's the list!

I have the prequel to Charon Unguarded on the go at the moment, and books two and three in the outlining stages. I promise to make these a priority.

In memory of my late father I am writing down the stories, he would make up on the spot for me and my brother when we were children and plan to donate the proceeds to the British Heart Foundation. This project is going to take a while as the loss of my father was a very recent event and I am not yet emotionally ready to share these with the world.

Finally, I have a work of historical fiction in outline, and it will come as no surprise to many that this is Viking related. It's going to be an Eddic type saga with a healthy body count.(less)

This is the prequel of Charon Unguarded and tells the story of how and why all the trouble starts. This was a great deal of fun to write and I sincerely hope you all have as much fun reading it. It’s fantasy with sil

I have just finished reading the entirety of The Bet in the space of one day and absolutely couldn’t put it down. Compelling and gripping, I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading until I knew how it ended.

The Bet by A.H.  Johnstone
"While this maybe second in the series, the author cleverly sets The Bet up so that it isn’t essential that you’ve read the first one (although it’s great so please do). The set up is all the gods (and I mean ALL) are real and constantly bickering.

In Charon Unguarded we met Charon as he suffers as a doorman.
