Hi, I’m Derek. I write historical fiction with attitude – I mean the stories have attitude, not me. Well, most of the time… I have a keen interest in all things historical, especially late medieval. I’m also an amateur archaeologist and take part on a Roman dig in the summer months.
My debut novel is Feud which is an historical action novel set during the Wars of the Roses period. I write mainly about fictional characters but I weave their stories around the events and people of the time. It’s important to me to be true to the history but I dare say I don’t always succeed.
