“I am Thomas Mordred and I am a fake, a pretender. It’s not my fault. I woke up and found myself in an opulent bedroom meant only for a king. Before I could escape, a slave named Darden came up behind me and called me Your Majesty. He quietly explained that I am King Mordred the Seventh of Broanmire and that I suffer from blackouts. Over the years I said I always went to a strange place with scary people when I was unconscious until I spoke of it no more. He says that nowadays I awaken and have lost my memory but it seems that they must still be with me because somehow, I act as though I know what I’m doing…almost naturally. He told me I always wear my robe and now I have come to call myself “The Robed Pretender of Mordred Castle”.
Although he’s tried to help me learn about Broanmire, I can’t rely upon his counsel alone. I know or remember nothing of Broanmire or its allies and treaties or even its enemies. I know nothing of the people or if I treat them well or ill. I know not who to trust or even who to fear. I need to learn how to be their King and how to command my army and navy, how to lead and when to heed the counsel of others.
I found a thick book of Broanmire’s history and my Mordred family predecessors. After reading the details of my ancestry and my appointed administrators, The Seven Houses of the Elites, who run the Kingdom under my direction and command, I realized that I must tour this island nation and get to know the Seven Houses and my subjects, how they live, etc.. If I am to get out of this situation alive I must know the entire Kingdom so that I may have a mental picture and accurate knowledge of all and everything within it.”
You are invited to follow along with King Mordred as he tours his Kingdom and learns the lay of the land, meets his subjects and the Privileged People who administer The Seven Houses. Watch over his shoulder as he evolves into a better King and a better person, yet he’s also dangerous to those who evoke his wrath. It’s a different time, a time when punishment and war were primitive and ruthless. Feel his pain when he falls for a woman who acts as though she can’t wait to get away from him.
Many adventures are ahead of Mordred, some good, some bad, even terrible. Order the paperback or download the Kindle version and travel with him on his journey of courage and honor.

Sharon, my wife of over fifty years and I spend our time actively pursuing the busy life of a retired couple. She had a career in the food industry and I retired from a career in heavy construction. We enjoy our four grown children, a flock of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our home in the Michigan countryside almost always has something happening. We enjoy traveling, especially cruising the Caribbean and vacationing in Florida during the winter.
We’re both members of The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. She spends her time enjoying the grandkids and we both like to relax in our fifth wheel by a lake during the summertime. I spend a good amount of time gardening, caring for the lawn and fishing and share the garden’s bounty and the fish I catch with our friends. We love having company at the lake and a lot of our grown kids and some of the grandkids have cruised with us.
I enjoy writing and firmly believe that filling in the work with a lot of cussing adds little to the quality of a story. I worked in construction and believe me, I know how to cuss, but not in front of ladies and children. I don’t include graphic sex in my work and never use the “F” bomb. I try to write stories that make the reader eager to turn the page to see what happens next.
