Stop Press: Queen of the North

Queen of the North

Some exciting news for  2018.

My new novel Queen of the North will be released in hardback and ebook on 31st May 2018.

A story of ambition, of betrayal and treachery, and of love.  A story of the battle for power in the north and in the Welsh Marches.  A story of great achievement and the doom of inevitable failure.

What a marvellous tale it has been for me to write.  The story of Elizabeth Mortimer and her husband Sir Henry (Hotspur) Percy.

Available for pre-order here


I love the cover!
