A LIGHT IN THE DARK AGES SERIES
This book series presents an imagined history of life in Britannia in the Fifth and early Sixth Centuries – the period after the Roman evacuation in the years leading up to 410 AD. This is the Dark Ages, a time of myths and legends that builds to the greatest legend of all – Arthur. Part one, Abandoned, was extensively revised and re-launched in July 2018 as a second edition. Currently, the author is writing the fourth instalment – Arthur, Dux Bellorum, out in March 2019.
Abandoned – Book one in the series, starts in Britain in 410 AD – the final year of Roman occupation of their most northerly province. Christian bishop, Guithelin, guided by visions, undertakes a perilous journey to a neighbouring country to plead with a noble prince to come and save his ailing country. He persuades the Christian Prince Constantine to bring an army, but is the preening noble the right man to lead the Britons? An epic adventure ensues involving the rivalry of local chiefs and the efforts of a determined group to instil order. The abandonment of Britannia by the Romans was a time of opportunity for some, and great anguish and suffering for others as the island underwent a slow and painful adjustment to self-rule. Now also available here on i-books (Apple); Kobo; Nook (Barnes & Noble) and others.
Ambrosius: Last of the Romans – Book two in the series, starts with the return to Britannia in 440 AD of Ambrosius Aurelianus, son of murdered King Constantine. He has come to avenge his father’s death at the hands of cruel tyrant, Vortigern, who has seized control of the island and employ Saxons in his mercenary army. But who is the master and who the puppet? Ambrosius finds that the influence of Rome is fast becoming a distant memory as Britannia reverts to its Celtic tribal roots, and rivalries surface as chiefs choose their side in an ensuing civil war. i-book, kobo, nook here
Uther’s Destiny – Book three in the series.

Could the fate of his kingdom hang in the balance as a consequence? i-book, kobo, nook here
