The Suffragette Derby of 1913: a woman sacrifices her life for her cause, but what of the man who feels responsible for killing her?

This novel was inspired by the life of royal jockey Herbert 'Bertie' Jones, his rise to fame, his tragic collision with Emily Wilding Davison 100 years ago, and the dramatic events that followed.

"The King's Jockey" explores the evolving roles of the individual, the family and society. Set in a world of traditional values that is on the cusp of change, the story considers the issues of responsibility, loyalty, sacrifice and belief.

Until now Bertie Jones has been just a footnote in a history book.
