7 Facts About the Black Death


I’ve written two novels that take place during the Black Death in Europe in 1348, The Mortecarni and Revelation.





In The Mortecarni we meet Brother Maurice, the physician monk tasked by the pope to investigate occurrences of both the plague AND the mortecarni, undead creatures who display similar symptoms to the Black Death.







Revelation tells the continuing (but stand-alone) tale of Brother Maurice et al, and his fight to find the cure for the mortecarni. A young healer in Poland aids Maurice on his quest but can he ignore the challenge to his calling caused by his new companion’s presence.

  1. Didn’t realise that your next book wasn’t a sequel to the Northern Queen. Don’t usually like horror but thought the excerpt was very gripping.

    1. I’m working on the sequel at the moment, it’ll be about Edith of Wessex and Edward the Confessor. Mort is actually historic horror, I write horror short stories and thought I’d do a novel. It IS historic horror tho, so keeping my oar in the history waters! 😛
