Book cover

A jealous brother drove a boy from his home, expecting him to die on the hostile sea. Instead, the boy fought to manhood, became a famed warlord, and the first Anglo-Saxon king in Britain.


Hengist claimed he came to Britannia a willing exile. But the truth is . . . more complicated. His path was not straight. His hands, not clean. The truth sets the stage for the bitter conflict between the Anglo-Saxons and the Britons.

Sail with Hengist and his warband and witness the opening moves in the long struggle for Britain.

This novel is based on the research of JRR Tolkien, that the Hengist recorded in Beowulf, the History of the Britons, the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and other sources refer to the same man, and were based on historical people and events.

Heroika: Skirmishers
Conflict is a constant.

Heroika: Skirmishers is an anthology of desperate struggles in far flung time-scapes from best-selling author, Janet Morris. It includes some of today’s best writers and new talent.

My contribution to this anthology, A Handful of Salt, is based on the true story of ten thousand Greek mercenaries stranded in the middle of modern-day Iraq, as portrayed by the Greek general and historian, Xenophon in The Anabasis, seen, however, through the eyes of their opponents.

Today we struggle to understand the mind-set of ancient cultures, often making the mistake of seeing their world through the filter of our own values. This story is an attempt to understand a heroic perspective alien to our own.
