Welcome to my website and thanks for dropping by.
I’m the author of nine books about Greek mythology: a hexalogy (?!?) about the Trojan War, from the perspective of Odysseus and his friend, Eperitus; and a trilogy about the twelve labours of Heracles. If you’ve not read any of my books before, all nine are listed below (in reverse order) with links to reviews and some places where you can purchase copies.
If you have read any of my books, a very BIG thank you. Hopefully, you’ve enjoyed following the adventures of Odysseus and Heracles. If so, can I ask a small favour? Could you please take a moment to leave a review for any of my books on Amazon? Every extra piece of feedback – whether a couple of words or a short essay – generates more interest in the books and helps me to keep writing. As the Greeks say – Ευχαριστώ πολύ (thank you very much)!
Just as a final word, did you know this website was nominated for an award a while back? Me neither, I only found out the other day by chance. Here’s the link.
Hero of Olympus
Surpass all odds, break the chains, defeat a god…
Heracles’ trials are far from over. Carrying the weight of the heavens, accompanied only by his most loyal friend, Iolaus, he will do anything to atone for his crimes. But all is not as it seems. Gods and men alike plot against him…
First Heracles must obtain the girdle of the Amazonian Queen, Hippolyta, steal cattle from the monstrous Geryon, and take apples from the Garden of Hesperides.
Through it all Heracles will come to realise his betrayal is more complete than he could ever have imagined. Ultimately, to release himself from his suffering, he must journey deep into Hades, and face death itself…
The final instalment in The Heracles Trilogy, Hero of Olympus is a thrilling triumph, perfect for fans of Miles Cameron, C.F. Iggulden and Simon Scarrow.Read More
Wrath of the Gods
The awe-inspiring myth of loss, labour, and revenge… Heracles will do whatever it takes for justice
Having completed his first trials, Heracles learns that the shocking murder of his children was part of an evil plot, his mind brought to madness by some strange poison. To regain his honour, he must uncover the secret behind this terrible betrayal.
Despite the revelation, he continues the twelve trials. Charis, servant of vengeful Hera, sets him a series of seemingly impossible tasks: slay the terrifying Erymanthian Boar, clean the filthy Augean Stables, defeat the man-eating Stymphalian Birds and best the colossal Cretan Bull…
As Zeus rages and Hera plots, Heracles must fight on, clad in the impenetrable hide of the Nemean Lion, and with his loyal nephew Iolaus at his side. But as his labours grow ever more dangerous, will he have time to uncover his family’s murderer before it’s too late?
An epic, unputdownable read about the greatest of myths, Wrath of the Gods is perfect for readers of Christian Cameron, C.F. Iggulden and Simon Scarrow.Read More
Son of Zeus
Impossible odds versus the world’s mightiest hero: the epic story of Heracles grippingly retold.
Heracles has done something unforgivable. Son of the King of Olympus and saviour of Thebes, Heracles is adored by all. Until his world is shattered. Born from Zeus’s adultery, he has become the unwitting prey of Hera, who will stop at nothing to destroy him.
Haunted by his crimes, he seeks penance with the Delphic oracle and is ordered to complete twelve seemingly unconquerable labours. Armed with superhuman strength and an unshakeable resolve, Heracles must overcome not just the mythical beasts of his trials, but the vengeful gods themselves.
Even for Heracles, redemption will not come easily. He has only one choice: to fight.
An awe-inspiring retelling of the myth of Heracles, Son of Zeus is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, C.F. Iggulden and Simon Scarrow.Read More
