Ever since I was young I’ve been fascinated by two things: books and history. In the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to combine these two passions.

After studying at the University of East Anglia I worked as a lecturer, trainer and company director. But when I suffered a serious accident I had to reduce my work which I moaned about for a while.

It’s a decision I’ve never regretted. Since then I’ve written six novels and a number of short stories.
