Latest Project

I have a new book on the way. Although I am busy editing Thurkill’s Rebellion (part 3 of the Huscarl Chronicles), i am – in parallel – working on a new project. Editing can be so dull, so it’s nice to balance it out with something new and exciting. Not settled on a title yet (possibly Thunor’s Raven), but it is going to be a standalone work that is set in the early/mid 1020s in East Anglia. It is a tale of foul deeds and intrigue in the context of rivalry between a Lord’s sons born of different mothers. Loosely based on real events, it’s a lot of fun to be able to build flesh on to the very bare bones captured in the chronicles. Aim to have this published at some point in 2021.

Thurkill’s Rebellion

The 3rd book in the Huscarl’s Chronicles series is close to completion. Currently undergoing its 3rd draft, I hope to have a version ready to send out to a few trusted readers before the end of July.

Thurkill’s Rebellion deals with the period around the second half of 1067 and into 1068 when the reality of Norman rule starts to hit home to the surviving Saxon lords. A number of insurrections arise, a significant one of which took place centred on the old Roman town of Exeter whose huge stone walls present a formidable barrier to the Norman King.
