My name is Steven A. McKay and I’m a writer from Old Kilpatrick, near Glasgow in Scotland, heavily influenced by the likes of Bernard Cornwell, Douglas Jackson, Ben Kane et al.

My first book in the Forest Lord series, Wolf’s Head, was set in medieval England and it’s a fast-paced, violent retelling of the Robin Hood legends. It hit the number 1 spot in the UK “War” chart, reached the overall Kindle top 20 bestsellers list and is available on Kindle, audiobook and paperback from Amazon here:  http://smarturl.it/2636

As I write, in October 2016, I’m just about to publish the fourth and final book in the series, Blood of the Wolf. I think my take on the Robin Hood legend is quite different to anything that’s been done before – check out the reviews to see for yourself.

In total, including my two novellas, Knight of the Cross and Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil, I’ve sold over 75,000 books in the past three years with hundreds of five star reviews for them.  As a working class man from a little village in Scotland, I’m honestly amazed at how many people enjoy my books.

Thank you all so much for reading!

  1. Really enjoyed that,.fantastic. I have read.vast quantities of historical fiction.
    It started slowly, but the writing and the story kept getting better and better. Put me down for a first run of the sequel..

    • Thank you Chris, much appreciated! I’ve been told by a few people they thought it got better as it went on – I think it’s probably because it took me almost three years to write. I improved as a writer as I went. Hopefully, that bodes well for the next book (which is ALMOST finished)!

      Please, if you get a minute, leave a review on Amazon, it really helps. 🙂

      Thanks again for taking the time to post,
