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 time travel novel called Inheritance, where the main character travels back to the beginning of white settlement in Australia. And of course the Dragonkeeper series is set in ancient China.
