About the Author

M J Burr is a former teacher of History with no preference for any period over another because he loves it all. Throughout his teaching career he emphasised the importance of History as the story of ordinary people in sometimes quite extraordinary situations, and his commitment to ‘History as story’ continues to underpin his work. His writing areas have included 11th century Europe as well as 19th century New Zealand, and he is currently working on a novel of the American Civil War as well as a major work on the demise of the Knights Templar. He believes that having been a lifelong teacher helps him to offer the ‘learner’s view’ so fundamental to any good teaching and that this comes through in his characterisations, scene settings and plotting. He holds degrees at master’s level in History and Education, another ‘plus’ for a working author doing his own research. His writing idols? CS Forester, GM Fraser, Frederick Forsyth – “because they tell great stories backed by painstaking research”. His favourite book? “My next one”.
