M J Porter
I'm an author of fantasy (Viking age/dragon-themed) and historical fiction (Early English, Vikings and the British Isles as a whole before the Norman Conquest). I was born in the old Mercian kingdom at some point since 1066. Raised in the shadow of a strange little building, told from a very young age that it housed the bones of long-dead Kings of Mercia and that our garden was littered with old pieces of pottery from a long-ago battle, it's little wonder that my curiosity in Early England ran riot. I can only blame my parents! I write A LOT. You've been warned! Find me at www.mjporterauthor.com and @coloursofunison on twitter. Not sure where to start your journey through Early England? Here are some pointers. If you like action-adventure, with a heavy dose of violence, foul language and good old camaraderie - The Ninth Century series is for you, starting with The Last King, or The Seventh Century, starting with Pagan Warrior, has a little more politics to go with the set-piece battles. If you like stories about the forgotten women of history, then the Tenth Century series, starting with The Lady of Mercia's Daughter, is a good place to begin. Or, The First Queen of England, with a little more romance. If you're interested in the last century of Early England (before 1066) then The Earls of Mercia series is for you. If you want to read it all, then you can read in chronological order, or mix it up. The series weren't written in chronological order. If you've come for fantasy, then try The Dragon of Unison books or The Innkeeper standalone novel.Read more Read less
