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 

Whited Sepulchres, the third in my series of medieval murder mysteries featuring Edwin Weaver, will be published by the Mystery Press in October 2014. I'll post the cover design when it's available!

The Bloody City
, the sequel to The Sins of the Father, is now available in the US.


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.
