NEW IN 2016:


The US paperback edition of THE SWORD OF ATTILA was published in February, following on from the UK edition late last year. To order copies, click on the covers above. To find out more about the novel and for links to other international editions, go to the Books pageClick here for a FREE PREVIEW CHAPTER.


TESTAMENT, the ninth of my Jack Howard archaeological adventure novels, will be published later this year. I'm very much looking forward to showing the cover design, creating a web page for the novel and presenting the factual backdrop behind the story and its relation to my own archaeological projects. More on that soon!

The previous novel in the series, PYRAMID, can be ordered by clicking on the covers below. The Books page for the novel contains links to blogs giving the backdrop to that story, an exciting adventure set in present-day Egypt. Click here for a FREE PREVIEW SAMPLER.


I began publishing novels in 2005 before I had a website, and I'm gradually catching up with my backlist. On the BOOKS page, my five most recent novels now have dedicated pages with images, galleries of international editions and blog postings on facts behind the fiction. I've also added more to my BIO page, with more on my archaeological experiences, and I've created a GALLERY page to show recent images of me diving. An expanding feature of the website will be videos of shipwrecks and diving taken by my brother Alan, including the selection opposite. I blog here on material related to the novels, on recent discoveries and dives and on anything else that interests me, ranging from exploration to genealogy to military history. I also have an active Facebook page with frequent postings, and welcome contact there or by email through my Contact page.
