William the Conqueror could never have imagined the impact that gruesome October day on Senlac ridge would have, not only on the establishing of the England we know, but debatably, the history of the world.
This story puts flesh on the names and breath in the lungs of the people, etched into every English person's psyche from school days.
Jarl Magnus Matthewson, from Northumbria, having been plunged into the cauldron of history, is faced with the moral choices conflicting with loyalty, honour and friendship, and his concern for those who place their simple trust in him.
"Live history with him."
'How can we humankind turn this noble work of God into such corruption? I gag at the charnel stench of the place; look at this mess before us. History will come with her needle and stitch the tapestry to hang upon the walls of time for all to see; though the pigment for her thread is this day's bloody earth, time will fade the vision and man will be compelled to stain the cloth anew.'

About the Author
All his life he had struggled with the written word, being dyslexic. Where he did excel, was his artwork, he drew and painted from being a small boy.
He had cancer, which forced him to retire, while he was ill he started to read for pleasure, he couldn't do much else for a while. He found that in reading he could be transported away from the pain to another place, a "Dream World".
One day he thought he could create his own dream world, he would do it through writing, with a little help from his friends, and draw from the vast resources of history and beauty on his doorstep.
Writing, he thought, was only an extension of his childhood games. The only limitations were down to imagination.
Most of his books are played out in the beautiful North East of England, where the places in the books can be seen and touched.
Come to the North East, sit on the quiet beaches, close your eyes, and be transported into the world of Sebastian Swan.
All things begin and end with a story.
