The Leofric Series

Set in AD 520 against the background of Germanic migrations, the Leofric books describe the adventures of Leofric, son of Radulf of the Three Ships, as treachery and misadventure uproot him from his ancestral home in Angeln and set his feet on the path to the New Kingdom - the Angle-lands of Roman Britain.

Sword of the Angles

The first novel of the Leofric series.

Denmark, AD 520. Fearing invasion, Cynefrid, the King of Angeln, summons a muster of fighting men to his eastern stronghold. Thegn Eadwig and his nephew, Leofric, answer the call, but they quickly become embroiled in the intrigues of the kingdom and a violent encounter leads to Leofric being charged with murder. This bloody act heaps ruin on Leofric and his family, and he is forced to flee to a remote sanctuary where he recovers his strength and plans the revenge that will ultimately reclaim his birthright.

Bleacher

"Beware, Bleacher. There is an old saying in this valley: 'Un hombre con el melón, es un hombre fuerte'. A man with melons is a man with power."

 

Welcome to the world of Jack Bleacher.

Any resemblance to a fictional character is entirely deliberate.

Jack Bleacher

Parody, pastiche or rip-off. You decide as we follow Jack Bleacher to a ghost town deep in the New Mexico desert. Framed for murder, Bleacher must earn the trust of the beautiful lady sheriff (is there any other kind?) and battle assorted bikers, scofflaws, evil nerds, and a ruthless melon farmer to clear his name. He must also uncover a secret in the town’s dark heart and solve a mystery - what exactly is going on in the smelly old factory, and what does Bleacher have to do to stop it?
