One day I was standing in Swansea town centre, opposite the ruins of Swansea Castle, and I wondered what the castle and the town were like in the castle’s heyday. I searched the internet and went to the library, and found a remarkable story that captured my imagination.
Three years later, and lots more research and writing, and there is a book. This blog is the story of that journey, that story, and that book.
I have been writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, but only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by the local history above, and writing poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing – hence the book.
