Even as a young child, I loved reading stories about Vikings and other medieval warriors fighting to defend their homeland or raiding in distant lands. I would often be found running around outside with nothing other than a wooden sword and my imagination. An imagination aided by reading a lot.
My mother used to take my brother and I to our local library and I would run around excited by all the books as I eagerly tried to find my next adventure. Through the years my tastes have changed and soon I was fascinated by writers such as Bernard Cornwall, Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and many more. The medieval period became my favourite and I enjoyed learning about life in the so-called Dark Ages.
I was born in South Africa but raised in England. Currently, I live in Moscow, Russia with my wife and our French Bulldog, where I work as an English tutor. When I am not teaching or writing, I can be found reading, watching rugby or working on DIY projects. Being born in South Africa, I am a big Springboks fan and never miss a match.
