The Lost King

A month ago Trevor Timpson, a journalist at the BBC, approached me to ask what I knew about Edgar Aetheling as he was writing an article to commemorate the 950 year anniverary of the Battle of Hastings.

His piece is very interesting and can be found here: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-36701131

They concern Edgar Atheling, last representative of the ancient English royal dynasty and his fight to regain the throne from William the Conqueror. Martin has also published 'Artful' the further adventures of the Dodger and 'Outcasts' a novel about fall of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem. His latest novel, 'A Love Most Dangerous' is about a maid of honour who becomes the lover of Henry VIII. Martin’s work has been broadcast on radio.
