Derek was born in Hampshire in England but spent his teenage years in Auckland, New Zealand where he still has strong family ties.For many years he taught history in a secondary school in Berkshire but took early retirement several years ago to concentrate on his writing.Apart from writing, he spends his time gardening, travelling, walking and taking part in archaeological digs at a Roman villa.Derek is interested in a wide range of historical themes but his particular favourite is the later Medieval period. He aims to write action-packed fiction which is rooted in accurate history. His debut historical novel, Feud, is set in the period of the Wars of the Roses and is the first of a series entitled Rebels & Brothers which follows the fortunes of the fictional Elder family.The sequel to Feud, A Traitor's Fate, was published in November 2013 and Book 3, Kingdom of Rebels, followed in August 2014. The final book in the series, The Last Shroud, is now available to pre-order and will be out on 31st August 2015.
