Jemahl Evans, author of The Last Roundhead
Matthew Harffy is the author of action-packed, historically accurate novels. He has published nine novels in the Bernicia Chronicles series, set in seventh century Britain.
The Times called Matthew’s standalone novel, Wolf of Wessex, “a treat of a book”. His newest series, A Time for Swords, is set at the dawn of the Viking Age and follows the adventures of monk-turned-warrior, Hunlaf, who witnesses the first attack on the monastery of Lindisfarne and feels compelled to pick up a blade and organise the defence against the Norse raiders.
Before becoming a full-time writer Matthew worked in the IT industry, where he spent all day writing and editing, just not the words that most interested him. Prior to that he worked in Spain as an English teacher and translator.
Matthew lives in Wiltshire, with his wife, their two daughters and a slightly mad dog.
