Historical fiction is my thing. I’ve been fascinated with history all my life, and though I’ve read many, many history books, I have also learned a huge amount through reading fictional accounts of life and lives in the near and distant past. The mysterious gaps in the historical record are a source of endless fascination, and both as a writer and reader of historical fiction, I love stories that fill in those gaps and answer the three big questions:
What was life like?
What was he or she like?
Why did things happen that way?
My aim is to write novels answer those questions in an entertaining and compelling way.

Also, have a look at my Free Stuff page, where you can find bits and pieces I have published in my newsletter and elsewhere that might be of interest.
If you want to contact me, I’d love to hear from you. You will find an email form on the Contact page, where you can also sign up for my newsletters and other communications from me.
Now, this is REALLY important:
I am a self-published author, which has lots of pluses and minuses. One of the minuses is that I don’t have the resources of a big publishing house behind me to market my books, so I need all the help I can get to spread the word about my work.
So if you would like to help me, there are a few things you can do:
You can follow me on social media to get updates
You can review my books on Amazon or Goodreads
Most importantly, you can tell all your friends about my books, by posting on Facebook or Twitter or any other social media, or even by simply emailing them (very old-fashioned, I know!).
