I write fiction in two different eras - the Past and the Future - historical fiction and science fiction. Follow the various links to find more about both. Books are available in paperback and/or electronic format - see the pages Where to buy for a selection of internet retailers. The page Downloads and offers gives some additional material - free downloads and samples, and occasional extra offers.

The books are published under the imprint name Matteh Publications.

Life, love and conflict in the hill country around 1200BC

“Kephrath” is a small town in the hill country of Canaan. It is the setting for various novels and short stories, all set around 1200BC and the years shortly after. So far, there are three full length novels, two short stories, and various pieces of additional material.

Interviews of Kephrath - Tadugari and Anilat cover Interviews of Kephrath - Nikleos and Kastiandra cover Interviews of Kephrath - Hekanefer cover Interviews of Kephrath - Labayu cover

These people, their home, and the rather unsettled times they lived, in are a constant source of fascination for me, which I have explored both in fiction and in academic research.

Extracts from a recent review:
Historical Novel Society
Wide in scope and rich in detail and plot, this is an accomplished illustration of this era in the region: complex, informative, enjoyable and skilfully put together.
