Author of historical fiction (Early English (before 1066)/Viking) and now three 20th century mysteries and a series of historical fantasy.

Son of Mercia and Wolf of Mercia from Boldwood Books are now available. Warrior of Mercia released 9th November 2022 (featuring a young Icel from The Last King series).

The Ninth Century Series (The Last King), stories of ninth-century England, but not as it's been written before, (featuring an older Icel).

Working on my first non-fiction title about the tenth century in Saxon England.

I like to write. You've been warned.

Pleased that Coelwulf is helping you, and look after yourself. It's been a strange time and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. And yes, nothing wrong with having a crush on him.
