Welcome to this website. Most of my productive time these days is spent writing books. I write the type of books I like to read. My first three books are historical thrillers set in the sixteenth century and featuring the adventures of William Constable – a physician and scholar. The fourth in the series is now a work in progress, after a short diversion while I wrote a novel based at the end of the First World War.

The books have picked up a couple of awards and are published by Sharpe Books.

I’m also a leader and member of a couple of local writing groups. Writers can feel isolated, and I find the interaction with fellow writers helps with ideas, critiques and much-needed encouragement to keep on writing through the period when words won’t flow. It’s fun, helps to improve my writing and I get some great ideas.

Most of the Blog posts on this website are either written by other authors or are about the publications and writing of other authors. The same applies to the Short Fiction section, where the majority of the posts are from author friends.

More about my Books

“A gripping and evocative page-turner that vibrantly brings Elizabeth’s London to life.”

“Full of convincing characters both historical and imagined … a worthy successor to A State of Treason.”

“Walker skilfully creates a treacherous world of half-truths, plots and duplicity… simmering with impending danger.”
