Martin Turner


Martin Turner lives with his wife Marjolein in a tower near the river Avon. With a head stuffed with Arthurian legend and Middle English poetry, he set off into the wilds to write The Skifter about a boy who struggles through the threads of time to rescue his mother from a castle that should not have existed.
He writes: "All the characters and scenes in The Skifter are made up, and all of them are based on real incidents and real people. Especially the sword fights, which are from first hand experience."

Ghosts, giants, highwaymen, and the steady crunch crunch of horse hooves on the frozen land. A magical novel.
