Hello and welcome to my Website!



I love to read fast-paced exciting stories and I love to write them too.

My Fifth Knight medieval thrillers featuring Sir Benedict Palmer take infamous historical events and ask the ‘What if..?’ question about them. Readers have bought over 200,000 copies of the series.

I’m delighted to announce that I have a new medieval mystery series, the Stanton and Barling Mysteries.

Aelred Barling, a cynical middle-aged clerk at the court of Henry II, is a stickler for the rules. Hugo Stanton, his amiable young assistant, is a disgraced royal messenger with an uncommon talent for rooting out the truth. They live in an age of violent murder and swift revenge, but together they are tasked with imposing the King’s law on an unruly populace—even when it means putting their own lives on the line.

The first in the new series, THE KING’S JUSTICE, is published by Thomas & Mercer on June 1st, 2018.


THE MONASTERY MURDERS, the second in the series, will be published on September 27th 2018.


Thanks for visiting!
