The legends of King Arthur have played a key role in my life. When I was a kid I saw the film Excalibur and apart from loving everything about it, it introduced me to classical music (Wagner), but even before then the tales of Merlin and Arthur had fired my imagination, so much so that I can still remember a snippet that I read in a book called ‘Phenomena’ from the 1970s which had this story of a family who were driving through a forest one night, and saw a sword in a rock glowing in the mist. I can safely say the legends of Arthur are partly why I’m an author today.

So it was only a matter of time before I wrote a book in that world. My starting point was an old prophecy which basically says that when the Kingdom (UK) is in peril, Arthur will return. I’ve always thought that would be a great way to bring the legends into the present. From that core premise Sanctuary, Order of the Ring book 1 and Dark Kingdom, Order of the Ring book 2 were born.

I hope you enjoy them!
