"The Cat, the Rat and Lovel our Dog
"Doe rule all England under a Hog"—William Colyngbourne
The rat, Richard Ratcliffe died, and the cat, William Catesby was executed after Richard III, a hog lost his battle against Henry Tudor at Redemore in 1485. Francis Lovell, our dog, survived. Two years later, Lovell led the rebels at the Battle of Stoke Field, which they lost to King Henry VII.
"Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."—Murphy’s Law
While many of the rebels were killed in battle, or executed after, Lovell’s fate is unknown. Richard is haunted by the possibility Lovell starved to death after being trapped in an underground vault. Richard uses the time machine to go to the vault. Then everything goes wrong.

About the Author
After retiring from my career in computer science and data communications in 2004, I discovered the real Richard III. I found his story was so compelling I continue to investigate primary and secondary sources about this fifteenth century monarch. In addition, I'm a member of the American Branch of the Richard III Society and editor of this branch's publications. My novels about Richard III in the 21st century are: 'This Time,' 'Loyalty Binds Me,' and 'Strange Times.'
