About me

Author of Amazon’s UK War chart number 1’s “Wolf’s Head”, and the sequel, “The Wolf and the Raven”, which are a new take on the Robin Hood legend, set in Yorkshire in 1321-22.

I was born in 1977, near Glasgow in Scotland. I live in Old Kilpatrick with my wife and two children.

Historical fiction is my favourite genre, but I also enjoy old science-fiction and some fantasy.

Bernard Cornwell’s King Arthur series was my biggest influence in writing “Wolf’s Head”, but I’ve also really enjoyed recent books by guys like Ben Kane, Anthony Riches, Douglas Jackson and Robert Low.
