David Stokes in brief
Studied history at Oriel College, Oxford. Early career in business before becoming an academic at Kingston University, publishing articles and books; awarded doctorate and emeritus professorship. Now using my research knowledge and love of the past to write historical fiction mainly of the Anglo-Saxon period.
Married to Sue. Four children, none of who have names beginning with AE, despite my efforts. Hobbies outside of historical research are mainly sport (tennis and rowing currently).
I'm quite old by some definitions (but then you have to be old to write about the Anglo-Saxons, don't you?).
Enough of me: the original Anglo-Saxons are much more interesting. If you don't believe me, download a sample of their lives at davidstokesauthor.com
