About the Author

Toby has written two historical novels. The first, titled The Devil's Inheritance, is the epic saga of the Norman Conquest of England, spanning four decades, detailing the stories of Duke William of Normandy and Earl Harold Godwinsson, culminating in the best known date in English history, the battle of Hastings, October 1066. This is available on Kindle and in paperback.

The second novel, titled The Zaharoff Conspiracy, is published by Methuen (March 2014). This is a spy mystery set in 1914, weeks before the outbreak of the First World War wherein Septimus Oates, an Oxford don, stumbles upon a royal secret dating from the late eighteenth century which threatens world peace. The Zaharoff Conspiracy is the first in a series of spy thrillers set during the First World War and the early years of MI6, the Secret Intelligence Service.
