Perhaps, my blog name, Random Thoughts of an Accidental Author, says it all. Having worked in computer sciences, I never expected to write, or if I wrote, it most likely would be science fiction.
But then I discovered Richard III and found his real life and character so compelling that I had to write about him. My first book, This Time, transports this medieval king seconds before he would have died in battle to the 21st-century. Although there is a scifi element to the story, the focus is predominantly character, history, and speculation of what might have happened where the historical record is blank or contradictory.
