(2015)
(The first book in the Byron series)
A novel by

 
 

THE BOY - THE MAN - THE LEGEND -- Covering his earliest years to the age of twenty-three -, this fascinating novel goes "behind the screen" to tell the private and personal story of the most iconic young man of his time - Lord Byron - whose charisma, beauty and literary genius helped him to overcome personal difficulties and rise from obscurity to become Britain's first superstar.

"I'VE READ ABOUT BYRON BEFORE, BUT NEVER LIKE THIS."-- M.L.Keegan.

"This fast-paced historical novel is a well-crafted telling of Byron's troubled start on the path to poetic greatness." -- Kirkus Reviews.

"Well crafted and meticulously researched" -- Publisher's Weekly.

"Utterly compelling." -- John McLaren, Author of BLACK CABS

Beginning when he is a boy of ten years old, we join George Gordon when he is living a miserable life with his manic Scottish mother in a few rented rooms above a shop in Aberdeen; unaware that his true surname is not Gordon, and that his true heritage is with the English aristocracy - who soon come to claim him.

A life of wealth and privilege is then bestowed upon him, which eventually sets the stage for him to prove his own individual worth, in his own way, and in his own time.

"My Name Alone shall be my epitaph." --- Byron.
