About the Author

Having been The Head of The Humanities Faculty at Huxlow Science College, teaching Geography and History for many years and also being invoved in teacher training, it is only in my retirement that I have had the opportunity to write about my interests. My six years teaching in Zambia influences some aspects of my writing as does my love of reading other authors of Historical adventure novels. I live in rural Northamptonshire with my wife, while my children and grandchildren live close enough for us to remain a tight knit family that has always supported me in my sporting and writing interests.
