During the past six years, I have written and published five science fiction and four historical novels.

The Science fiction stories fall into two groups, the Ozymandias trilogy, set in the not too distant future in which humanity discovers how to travel long distances at a significant proportion of the speed of light. This leads to the discovery of an unexpected link to other civilisations across the galaxy, which can be visited, once faster than light travel is developed by the group of scientists involved.

The second series of books - the Android Wars - travels 50,000 years into the future to a time when humanity has all but been hunted to extinction by a breed of Androids who blame mankind for deserting them on a planet four light-years away.

Historical novels include The Ice Cream Seller, a story which flits between 1865, 1917, 1944 and the modern era in an attempt to discover the truth about a number of murders throughout history.

Raptor, is the story of a young officer who, with his sister, becomes involved in the search for a British traitor during World War 1. It doesn't help that their cousin is head of German counter-intelligence who catches them in Belgum.

My most recent seried of books are the Pitt Family Saga, which follow Gervase Pitt and his family as they work with the Knights Templar to solve mysteries in 13th Century England - and beyond. The first tale, The French Carpenter, sees Gervase shipwrecjed off the Sussex coast, where he is given work by the Templars and local lord, before becoming involved in preventing the plot hatched by a French Priory to discredit the Templars, Baron de Braose and (allegedly heretic) Cathars.

In The Templar Pitt, Gervase starts working for the Order in London, where he is responsible for the discovery of a corpse bearing documents calling into question the legitimate of King John. His travels, and those of others, in search of an acceptable alternative incumbent for the throne, puts him and family members at risk.

In The Goldsmith's Apprentice, an apprentice is wrongly hanged for killing his master, an elderly Anglo-Saxon artisan. His family can do little to prevent this miscarriage of justice, but undertake to prove he was innocent and bring the true murderer to justice. In this third outing for the Pitt Family, the stakes are highr than ever. It is their own son's life at risk.

The story will contine with The Flying Mason and The Butcher of Marseille, in due course. I am currently working on the sixth story, Murder at the Tower, with A seventh, King John's Jewells, currently in planning.

All my books are available on Amazon, as e-books for £1.99. Most are also available in paperback.
