Rhomphaia Books

Rhomphaia Books is the publishing name I use for my novels. The rhomphaia was a two-edged sword used by the Varangian Guard of the Byzantine Emperors.

In 2018 I published the first book in the Varangian Series, An English Revenge. It is the story of Edmund, an Englishman who fought at Hastings and in the rebellions against William the Conqueror. Eventually, he leaves England and joins the Varangian Guard of the Byzantine Emperors. He dreams of leading an army of Englishmen back to England to throw out the Normans. But first, he has to fight another enemy – the Normans of Southern Italy.

An English Revenge is available on Amazon, as paperback and in Kindle format.

The second book in the series, An English King, takes Edmund’s story to the First Crusade. It will hopefully be published in late 2018 or early 2019.
