For as long as I can remember I’ve always liked history. As far as I’m concerned, everything in the past looks really interesting. The buildings were beautiful (castles and pyramids), there were beautiful clothes (flowing gowns and suits of armour) and there were really interesting people around (pharaohs and princesses). It wasn’t long before I started setting my stories in the past. As well as the Ramose series set in ancient Egypt, I’ve also written a novel about a medieval French knight and one set in the Victorian town of Ballarat during the gold rush. I also wrote a book set in modern times but about a boy finding an old shipwreck. And of course Dragonkeeper is set in ancient China.
