Welcome to my website
I’m a writer and researcher specialising in the High Middle Ages, although I do occasionally branch out into other fields.

You can't be a writer without being a reader, and I certainly love to read. You can find out more about my favourite books here. If you'd like to know more about me you can find some information here. To look at the rest of this site please use the links to the left.

Latest news 

The Bloody City
, the sequel to The Sins of the Father, is now available in the UK. It is published by The Mystery Press, an imprint of The History Press, the UK's largest specialist history publisher.

The Bloody City will be published in the USA in April 2014.


The Sins of the Father
, meanwhile, is available either in paperback or as an e-book. Both can be bought directly from The History Press website at a discount, or via any good bookseller.

And don't forget: if you're doing any searches for this book, it's under the name C.B.Hanley so searching for 'Catherine' won't help!
