Freedom Come All Ye

In a time of hardship, a young man becomes a legend. 

William Wallace’s uncle always told him that freedom was the best of things, but when his beloved Scotland fell under English rule by the hand of the tyrant Edward Longshanks, he knows that the freedom he thought was sacred is in danger of disappearing forever. When his patriot father is killed in battle, William knows his time has come to stand up and take his place to fight for Scotland. Gathering a small resistance of young men, they hide out in the woods and fight the English occupiers in hit and run warfare. 
When William finds out that the man in charge of the English garrison is the man who killed his father, he knows the battle is more personal than he thought it at first. After an attack to some of his friends, his only thought is to track down General Jack Moore and challenge him to combat. 

William finds himself caught up in eminent danger at every turn, inevitable capture and even romance with the beautiful Marion Braidfoot. He soon finds that being a leader is not at all as easy as he thought it was in the beginning and endures trial by error in his attempts to keep his comrades safe, all the time trying to keep himself from Jack Moore’s clutches.

The Anthony Maxwell Series

Anthony Maxwell Book One: A Case of Poisons 


Anthony Maxwell is a private investigator, a consultant for the mostly incompetent inspectors at Scotland Yard, on occasion a writer, and always a lover of coffee. He has been working small cases for several years to pay the bills when he’s introduced to the first multiple murder case of his career early one morning, when a witness catches a man trying to unload a body to bury in a nearby graveyard. Soon the first body is joined by three more in the course of a single morning and Anthony knows this is no ordinary serial murder case. And why is the murderer targeting beggars and urchin children? If that wasn’t cause enough to worry, all the victims are covered with horrible wounds and show signs of exotic poisoning. Anthony, along with his partners Tobias—an ex-broadsman and well-know charmer—and Scamp—a street smart and talented young woman—work to find out who is murdering the helpless beggars and children in such horrifying ways. The first book in this new Victorian steampunk series takes the three companions to the limits of their abilities as they go up against canny murderers, bruisers who appear invincible, anarchist groups, and even ancient British royalty in the biggest case Anthony Maxwell has ever worked in his career.
