Something for your bucket lists… A search for Atlantis!
Most visitors go to Gibraltar, Malta or Santorini for sun, seafood and relaxation. I was searching for something more elusive: the lost sunken city.

Ancient coins found!
A collection of ancient Greek and Roman coins includes an incredibly rare aureus of the Roman emperor Otho, who reigned for a mere three months. The Greek coins were struck by some of the most powerful city-states and rulers of the ancient world, such as Athens, Corinth and Alexander the Great.

"The English Templar" was praised by survivors of the Argentine "Dirty War" for its sensitive and insightful handling the after-effects of torture on a proud young man. It starts here, where Brother Percy wakes up after his rescue from the inquisition.
Castle of Najac, France The door latch clicked and the door creaked open. Percy looked over expectantly and smiled at the old man who entered.  He knew that this was the man who had saved his life, set his legs and was res...

The Bardo Museum

Revisiting my time at this lovely house of the Muses.

Not a place of horror, but rather of beauty, art, and history.

Fantastic restoration of Pompeii's Villa of Mysteries
Villa of Mysteries, which was destroyed in AD 79 by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, is a Unesco World Heritage Site and its neglect left Italy at risk of losing EU funding

Love #thrillers ?  My latest book, out today.
New York is built upon a dark secret. If this knowledge falls into the wrong hands, the city will crumble.

When a woman is crucified on a burning cross in downtown Manhattan, it marks the beginning of a dangerous crusade. The Confessors seek the powerful relic of a dark angel and they will stop at nothing to get it.

ARKANE agent Jake Timber is in New York to investigate the eleventh century Cloisters Cross alongside Naomi Locasto, a linguist, when they become entangled in the mystery.

As his past threatens to overwhelm him, can Jake find the relic of the angel before the Confessors destroy the city?

One Day In New York is out today! ARKANE Book 7 but can be read as a stand-alone and is the first book featuring Jake Timber as the main character

Ever wonder how much of "A Kingdom of Heaven" was true and how much was "pure Hollywood"? Find out in this series on Real Crusades History.

Introduction

I am a writer of historical fiction/fantasy with Eagles and Dragons Publishing, trained as an historian and archaeologist. 

For as long as I can remember I have loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Places are portals to the past and so I like nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting my imagination take over. 

One day I came to the realization that it would be a great thing to combine two of my favourite things, history and creative writing, to make the past accessible, thought provoking and above all, entertaining. I have studied ancient and medieval history and archaeology, and creative writing since 1991 and obtained an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Masters from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. My studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.

I'm always interested in connecting with other history lovers, readers, writers and anyone who loves to create art. 

So, drop me a comment or stop by my blog to connect around the virtual hearth fire.

Cheers!
