Matthew Harffy is the author of the action-packed, historically accurate series of novels, the Bernicia Chronicles, set in seventh century Britain. The ninth novel in the series, Forest of Foes, was published in December 2022.

Matthew’s 2020 novel, Wolf of Wessex, was very well received, with The Times calling it “a treat of a book”. It follows the tale of ageing warrior, Dunston, as he tries to find a man’s vicious murderers, keep the victim’s daughter alive, and uncover the dark secret that threatens to plunge the kingdom into war.

His newest series, A Time for Swords, is set at the dawn of the Viking Age. It follows the adventures of monk-turned-warrior, Hunlaf, who witnesses the first attack on the monastery of Lindisfarne and feels compelled to pick up a blade and organise the defence against the Norse raiders.

Matthew lives in Wiltshire, with his wife, their two daughters and a slightly mad dog. He will be talking about his writing and what inspires him.
