The Franks Casket - the earliest image of Wayland the Smith - 8th Century.
Most of my stories are created from the earliest sources rather than modern retellings. This has led to four small books where I combine an expanded telling with the fruits of my study - the origins, development and survival of the story. My wife, Liz Silk, is a professional artist and along with professional design and printing we have made a beautiful series. Sales have passed 800.
