About the Author

Heavy cranes, satellite tracking and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, have long loomed large in my life. I was born and raised on the edge of the Peak District, in a suburb of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, overlooking roaring steelworks and gloriously wild and beautiful moorland.

As a child I managed to ensure that education had little or no effect upon me, and so had to read and learn like crazy once I discovered that I really ought to have been paying attention.

My first novel, The Whispering Bell, set in the Peak District of circa 650 AD, was spotted by my publisher on the writers' website My second, Tuppenny Hat Detective, is very different, being a nostalgic detective story set in Sheffield in 1951.

I made my living selling heavy engineering services, travelling extensively,in Europe, USA, the Far East, and Australasia.

I adore my long suffering wife,love writing, cabinet making, the British countryside and its wildlife, my dog Wulfi, real ale in old pubs, and football. My wife and I live on the Somerset Wiltshire border a few miles south of the city of Bath.

I am a sucker for medieval stories and this one I absolutely loved. It was powerful and extracted so much raw emotion from me that I feel the need to read it again – and buy the book. There’s not one part of this story where I felt it dragged or bored me. I enjoyed each and every character, whether bad or good. The times depicted were well researched and lively. The descriptive words immersed me into each scene. I especially liked the dialog and loved Wynflaed & Wulfric’s relationship. I felt the book was cut just a bit too short for my liking. While I can guess what Wynflaed will choose, she has a little dilemma that may take her choice away to some extent and I would have liked to have seen how she addresses this. Also, I would have liked to have seen how Wulfric was affected by his circumstances.

This book was a historical romance, an adventure, and a mystery as well with enough twists and turned to keep it interesting until the very end. I knew very little about this time in history and it was enjoyable to learn about the rights of women during the 600AD time period and also to learn about the customs. I would recommend it!
