When I approach historical fiction, I do so with meticulous research and careful attention to real events. My motto is to never contradict known history unless a very minor adjustment is needed for the sake of dramatic storytelling. However, I do like to play with the unknowns of history, and this is vital to my style. I hope to create a unique and entertaining story that will provide a fresh perspective while challenging the notion that history can ever be known completely.

Read about one of the most notorious villains in English history (Eadric the Grasper), a young Jomsviking out for revenge (Godric the Kingslayer), or the dashing hero who fought Normans from the woods and probably inspired Robin Hood himself (Edric the Wild).
