(James C Duncan)

James Duncan has always been an avid reader of Historical Fiction and Fantasy, with a bit of sci-fi and apocalyptic fiction on the side. He always loved reading and the desire to write eventually became insurmountable when he finally felt he had a story worth telling. That story was the saga of Ljós a Norðan; The Light of the North, an epic alternate history of the end of the Viking era, a legendary warrior and the magical sword he supposedly wielded. Inspired by the Norse and Icelandic sagas, and rooted firmly in reality with a sprinkling of alternate history and mythology brought to life, the series explores a titanic and climactic clash of civilizations between the pagan raiding Norse, and the Christian nations of continental Europe.

James has a 4 book historical fiction series about the extraordinary life of Harald Hardrada being published with Boldwood books starting in October 2023 with 'Warrior Prince'. This series will chart the life and adventures of the famous Norwegian king, whose life was beyond imagination, and whose death defined an era.

When he isn't writing or doing his full-time engineering job, James is happiest being an amateur bladesmith, forging knives in the shed he built in his garden.
