Martyn Adams always cheerfully claims to be utterly diseased with history. His own words. He studied it at school and university, and has continued to be so involved that virtually all of his bookshelves are full of the subject to the exclusion of all else. He utterly bewails the lack of teaching of the subject nowadays, and hopes that his historical novels might redress the balance a little, given luck and a fair wind.
Martyn Adams is married, occasionally, but has never quite got round to being fruitful and multiplying yet. Perhaps he is too involved in history.
Aventura is publishing Martyn's series of Historical Adventure stories featuring Christopher Gaunt - a royalist and spy. The first in the series Gaunt the Royalist, is followed by Gaunt's Nemesis.
Martyn has also written Sex and the Sovereigns - The births, the deaths, and all the juicy bits in between, of 1000 years of English monarchs - to be published soon.

Christopher Gaunt, no longer the undercover agent of a penniless and exiled monarch, but now serving the restored Charles II, finds himself sent to this world of Grand Masters and galleys, of scimitars and slaves, to try to discover what, or who, was responsible for the sinister web of conspiracy that was slowly unravelling, threatening war on an unprecedented scale if not stopped in time.

Exiled in Europe Charles II has plotted his return for 10 years. Just when things seem to be going their way they realize they have a new & utterly ruthless enemy to contend with, someone with a deeply personal hatred of the House of Stuart.
