Yes, The Druid has already been at number 1 in some of Amazon's charts - it stayed at the top of the "Celtic, English & Welsh Myths" list for about 3 months after it came out after all. BUT, the highest OVERALL position it had ever reached in the UK was around top-500 or so. Well, yesterday... Continue Reading →

In The Druid, Bellicus starts off in modern-day Milton, West Dunbartonshire, and heads up along the A82 (roughly!) through Duntocher. I was working here today and knew there was an old fort located in the park, so I nipped in and took a few photos. To be honest, there's practically nothing to see of the old... Continue Reading →
A few years ago I wrote a guest post for fellow author Roz Morris, where I listed a few of the songs I like to listen to while writing my books. It was mostly just death and black metal with a bit of Jethro Tull, so I thought I would do an updated version featuring... Continue Reading →
When writing my previous Forest Lord novels I was working a full time job, and, as a father of small children, it wasn't really possible to travel south to research the locations I was writing about. But my new Warrior Druid of Britain series, although it still includes many parts of England as settings, sees... Continue Reading →
Amazingly, my brand new, standalone novel, Lucia, about a Roman slave in Britain, has been bought by Audible who will produce it in their own studios and publish it EXCLUSIVELY. It won't be available anywhere else other than from Audible for a year, and then I'll put out the Kindle and paperback editions. And do you... Continue Reading →
At last, I'm so excited to announce my news - the standalone novel I've been writing about a Roman slave has been signed up by Audible! It will be an exclusive title for them, which means it will ONLY appear as an audiobook which they will produce in their studios, you won't be able to... Continue Reading →
Book of the Year for THE DRUID? Why thank you sir (even if the honour is shared)! Check out Speesh’s favourite reads of 2018.
It has been, for me anyway, another excellent reading year. According to my lists here, I got through 70 books in 2018. As always, these are the books I read in 2018, that doesn’t necessarily mean they were published in 2018 (though some were), they’re just the books I read last year, and here they are in the order I read them.
*Clicking on each cover, will take you to the relevant review on Speesh Reads. In the review, there will be a link to buy the book, should you wish. I’m just short the bottom line at the time of writing, I’ll update the links as I get the review done

I find it really hard to switch between writing projects because I like to get right inside the heads of my characters and the period each novel is set in. Yet, right now, I'm working on the sequel to The Druid, called Song of the Centurion, and also a standalone novel about a young girl taken to Britannia... Continue Reading →
