About Me

I'm a Scottish writer, addicted to reading and writing historical fiction. My love of history was first kindled by the ruins of Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, and travelling around the ancient world has kept the fire burning brightly ever since. The later Roman Empire and Byzantium hold a particular fascination for me. There is something quite special about the metamorphosis from late antiquity into the 'dark ages' and the medieval period. 

While historical fiction is my passion, I enjoy writing comedy and sci-fi too. Perhaps one day I'll find a way to combine all three! You can read a little more about me and my background here.

You can read about my late Roman Legionary series here, and my Byzantine Strategos trilogy here. All of my novels are available from good online stores in paperback, eBook and audiobook format. Just click on any one of them on the slideshow below to find out more.
