About Robert Broomall
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a writer. I was one of those kids who always had his nose stuck in a book. My head was full of exotic characters and places and events, and my dream was to be able to create stories like the ones I read. Now that I actually am a writer, I sometimes can't believe it's happened. It seems like it was someone else who wrote those books. Either way, it's a dream come true.
Influences? C.S. Forester (the one and only), Robert Louis Stevenson, Agatha Christie, and others too numerous to mention. Contemporary influences -- the late George MacDonald Fraser and Bernard Cornwell.

Titles By Robert Broomall
When a Norman earl is killed while hunting, the dead man's son invokes the dreaded murdrum law. This law presumes that the killer is English, and it requires the judicial district in which the crime took place to produce the guilty man or be hit with a massive fine.
The job of finding the killer falls to Miles Edwulfson, an English ploughman of noble descent. Miles served as a soldier with the earl in Wales, twenty years earlier, an experience that changed his life. Miles has two problems. First, he doesn't believe the killer was English, but a member of the earl's hunting party. Second, the arrow used in the crime belongs to Miles's son, Aelred.
Facing opposition from the Norman nobility, his fellow Englishmen, and even his own family, Miles must save Aelred's life and bring the real killer to justice.
England, 1106 ADThe earl of Trent's Norman widow, Blanche, and her English steward, Miles Edwulfson, take possession of Blanche's estates, hoping to live a life of peace and quiet. However, they run afoul of a baron named Aimerie, who is building an illegal castle and taxing the surrounding manors--including Blanche's--to pay for it. Aimerie has ambitions that go far beyond this castle, to the heart of the English throne, and he won't let anyone stand in his way. What's more, Aimerie's hot-headed son, Ernoul, lusts after Blanche and wants to make her his wife. When Blanche and Miles refuse to pay Aimerie's taxes, Aimerie vows to crush them.
