Hi, welcome to my website. I was born in Wales but now call Australia home. I have a long standing interest in the English Civil Wars of the 17th century. In 2014 I started writing a novel about the “War Without an enemy” as it was described by an army commander in 1643. The Welsh Linnet was published in 2017. I have now completed a second novel The Tawny Sash, set during the same period (Publication date TBD) and have started writing a sequel.
During assorted Melbourne lockdowns over the last 12 months I have also written and had published a few short stories.
In my “spare” time I keep in regular contact with historical experts in the UK who patiently answer questions on every aspect of 17th century life on and off the battlefield. My regular research trips to the UK, its battlefields and castles, (and in-person talks on my writing) will resume when The Plague recedes.
Reviews of my debut novel The Welsh Linnet
