Any topic you choose, I'll become highly invested in it

I am a writer with a great deal of enthusiasm for any subject I'm given to write about. My main areas of interest are history and science, and I am the author of a published history book about the history behind the legends of King Arthur. I also regularly write for a website about the Arthurian Legends, focusing of the historical background to them. In addition, I have ghostwritten a book investigating the true locations of a famous collection of nine place names in post-Roman Britain. But despite history being my main area of interest, I have experience in writing about other topics, such as entertainment and education. I also to write regularly for a Doctor Who fan site, examining various different aspects of the show, and I also wrote web content on a professional basis for a teaching company for a while.

I am the sort of person who loves to know the facts behind whatever it is I'm writing about, so whenever I'm assigned a subject, even if it's something I previously had no interest in, I will become heavily engrossed in researching the topic and writing about it accurately. This enables me to be an informed and passionate writer regardless of the subject.

Did the Anglo-Saxon Invasion Really Happen?

This article that I wrote for my history blog is about whether or not the Anglo-Saxon invasion really took place. In recent decades, many scholars have argued that it was more of a semi-peaceful migration than a real invasion. This article was written in response to such theories (in particular, to a 2018 document about the subject). I outline my criticism of the supposed evidence against an invasion, and I argue that the evidence does support a proper invasion, in the vein of the Roman invasion of Britain centuries before.

Arthurian Legends - Was the Sword in the Stone Real?

This is an article I wrote for Arthurian Legends, analysing the legend of the Sword in the Stone to see if it may have had any historical basis.

King Arthur: The Man Who Conquered Europe

This book that I wrote is all about my theories concerning the origins of the legends of King Arthur. It was published by Amberley Publishing in May 2019, both as an electronic book and also as a hardback. The primary purpose of the book is to investigate the seemingly-fictional European campaign of Arthur's in the 12th century Historia Regum Britanniae. However, this involved delving into a lot of background information and outlining an explanation for the primary parts of the Arthurian legends as well, in addition to analysing the historical veracity of the Roman-era sections of the Historia Regum Britanniae.
