Tim Hodkinson grew up in Northern Ireland, where the rugged coast and call of the Atlantic ocean led to a lifelong fascination with vikings and a degree in Medieval English and Old Norse Literature. Tim’s more recent writing heroes include Ben Kane, Giles Kristian, Bernard Cornwell, George R.R. Martin and Lee Child. After several years living in the USA, Tim has returned to Northern Ireland, where he lives with his wife and children.
Tim writes a series of novels called The Whale Road Chronicles, following the adventures of a company of úlfhéðnar, wolf-skin clad viking warriors in the murky and often violent world of the early 10th Century.
Beyond vikings, Tim writes the Richard Savage, Knight Templar series, which is set in Fourteenth Century Ireland, during a war where “everyone seemed to be on the wrong side.”
His latest book is set in Roman Britain.
