About the Author
I write the kind of book I want to read myself. I write about history as a way to better understand my own times. I write about people who are far better, and (I hope) far worse than myself. And beautiful objects inspire me: the hand-carved combs, skilfully wrought swords, and gemmed goblets of the world of The Circle of Ceridwen Saga. Almost everything interests me; I've studied Anglo-Saxon and Norse runes, and learnt to spin with a drop spindle. My path has led to extensive on-site research in England, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, and Gotland - some of the most wonderful places on Earth. My other works include the novella The Tale of Melkorka, based on a story from the Icelandic Sagas; Ride: A Novella, a retelling of the story of Lady Godiva; and Light, Descending, a biographical novel about the great John Ruskin. I've been the fortunate recipient of Artistic Fellowships at the Ingmar Bergman Estate on Fårö, Gotland; the MacDowell Colony, Ledig House International, and Byrdcliffe.
