I've worked in the chemical industry and in townplanning. I've been a barman and a parson. I suppose I have been a historian as well because my first book, Counting the Days to Armageddon, was a history of a fringe religious group. But at heart I'm a storyteller.
The story of an eccentric man, who lives his life by his own rules and plays havoc in the lives of other people, who cannot seem to disentangle themselves from him. Bunderlin may be a criminal, a murderer even, but Martin isn't sure...
When Melanie rebels against the authoritarian religion of her family, she is cut off and has to make her way in life alone. Only then does she learn about Susan who had broken free a generation earlier.
The Gospel of Eleazar is a retelling of the story of Jesus, but without the miraculous and without the supernatural. It is set in the real world of real people. It isn't history and it isn't biblical study. It's story-telling and I hope you will agree that it is one worth telling even though, in the end we may never be able to answer that tantalizing question, "What really happened?"
