Archaeologist Dan knows how fragile the past can be. History can be erased by the ambitious. It is his job to protect it —no matter what the cost. Dan believes Sandra’s exploration may threaten ancient sacred sites. His arrival in town disrupts all her plans.

Druid’s Portal Series
Multi-generational time travel set in Roman Britain.
Druid’s Portal: The Second Journey is out on Amazon.
Early reviews called it “wildly imaginative” and “The action scenes are straight out of Indiana Jones, as well as the humor!“
Druid’s Portal: The First Journey came runner up in the Raven Awards for readers favourite fantasy/dark fantasy category.
The third – fifth in the series are well underway, with some extensive research. Major thanks to my lovely editor Sharon, who makes the books so much better – and encourages along the way.
I did a FutureLearn online course on Hadrian’s Wall and another on archaeology, so my research is progressing to fill in details.
