EPIC HISTORICAL FICTION
Welcome to my website, this site is dedicated to the historical fiction that I've written over the years that focuses heavily on the Italian renaissance period and the Holy Roman Empire.
Discover stories of brave knights and adventurous maidens who lived lives of danger and uncertainty but who transport us to a faraway time and place!
The stories I write have strong themes of good vs evil, as well as overcoming great perils against the odds. Themes of brother and sisterhood abound.
Giovanni Lascorza, a young knight of Florence and his aide, Otto Baldwinson live a life of adventure in the service of the great Medici family. In the direst of circumstances the lead book, The Tyrant of Siena, sees a great evil threaten the Republic of Florence, as a hidden power seeks its overthrow but can Giovanni and Otto save the city from certain doom?
