Historical Novelists’ Book Fair 12-15 April

Francine Howarth is hosting a four day Historical Novelists Book Fair for the period 12 – 15 April on her Romancing the Blog site.

I have a series of novels called ‘The Lost King’ which concerns Edgar Atheling, the young man who should have been King of England in 1066. He fought against the Norman Conquest for much of his life and his story has been largely neglected. The third novel will be available soon.

‘Outcasts’ is set in the months following Saladin’s conquest of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem. A family is torn apart by treachery.

‘Artful’ is about the adventures of the Artful Dodger after being transported to Australia. His skills and swagger are put under sore pressure.

I also have several collections of short stories including’ Mr Toad’s Wedding’, the winning entry of the international Kenneth Grahame Society competition.

If you’d like to read my books, and I hope you do, they are available world-wide on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Nook, Apple, Sony Readers, Computers, Tablets and Smartphones.

My novels are priced at $2.99 or equivalent, my short story collections at 99 cents or equivalent.
