Austin Hernon lives in Nottinghamshire with wife Mandy. Born in the middle of World War II and spending lots of nights in an air raid shelter, it was no surprise to find him following a military career when he survived.
Twenty six years, mostly in the REME where he was a mechanic specialising in underwater recovery.

A world-wide traveller and someone who has spent many years living abroad he is unwilling to give up that habit now that he is retired and travels widely.

First gaining a degree in Social Sciences before he took up the challenge and has so far produced four historical fiction novels with another in progress.

The story of the heroic defence of Lincoln castle against the French invasion of 1216/17, by the female constable, Nicholaa de la Haye, ably supported by her friend from across the Trent Valley, Matilda of Laxton.
Both women discharged their duties with courage, determination, and success.
