So, I have been in the writing business for over 45 years, sharing my passion for history with anyone who cares to read or listen to my words. Fortunately, many still do, which is why I am increasingly busy and am currently working on several projects which will keep me occupied well into the future. Top of the list is the series of Thomas Treviot novels published under the name of D.K. Wilson. If you are not familiar with my books please cast your eyes over these pages and see if there is something to interest you.
