Read full description of the books:
68 AD. The XIV Legion under the command of General Suetonius and the Tribune, Gnaeus Julius Agricola, march west on a mission to crush insurgent tribes in Rome's newest Province, Britannia. Fergus MacAmergin is an officer in a Celtic auxiliary cavalry regiment that rides alongside them. As the British tribes wage guerrilla war on the Romans, Fergus falls foul of his commander. His punishment is to lead a squad of men on a suicidal mission deep behind enemy lines. Joining forces with Agricola, Fergus is tasked with finding a mystical spear, said to be the weapon that pierced the side of Jesus Christ on the cross. As the assignment unfolds, it becomes clear that there is more to the spear than meets the eye and he is heading directly for a confrontation with dark forces from his past.

Read information about the authorI love reading and writing historical fiction.
My interest in ancient times, and particularly the medieval period, goes back to my childhood when my parents took us kids around the castles and megaliths of Ireland. I remember riding my bike as a boy to the see the various remnants of the Normans within reach of my home town of Lisburn. What would appear to most as uninspiring hillocks to me became in my imagination the site of heroic battles and I suppose that's where inspiration for some of my stories came from.
My interest only deepened with studying Old Norse, Medieval English and Celtic civilization at university and these topics have informed my first novels, along with a passion to tell stories about areas of Irish history that are sometimes overlooked and forgotten.
"Lions of the Grail" is set in Medieval Ireland, at the time the Scots invaded. Its a tale of knights and tournaments set against a war that time has forgotten. "The Waste Land" carries on the tale where Lions left off, while the novella, "The Savage Forest" takes the hero of this series, Richard Savage back to a time when he was still a young idealistic member of the Order of Knights Templar.
"The Spear of Crom" goes back to the time of the druids and is the story of a celtic cavalry officer in the Roman Army and his hunt for a mystical spear.
"The Undead" takes place in Victorian Belfast and moves into Gothic Horror, taking inspiration from Chapter 20 of Mary Shelley's classic novel "Frankenstein", which takes place in North Ireland.
Apart form that I have a couple of short stories set in the world of the Anglo-Saxons - "All the Kings Thanes" is my retelling of a true story treachery and the paranoia of power, while "Beowulf's Return" is set in the time of myth & legend.
My novels are available in print at all good online retailers and also (as well as the short stories) in Kindle format from Amazon.
I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing them.
