Melvin P. Tiley


Having taught history all his working life, it was hardly surprising that Melvin P. Tiley's first novel should be set during the turbulent times of the Elizabethan era. Now happily retired, Melvin plays golf (badly) and follows football (that's soccer in USA parlance). But his real passion is writing and a second novel is well on the way.

After a chance meeting in a tavern, two commoners, Tom and Edward, find themselves caught in a web of political intrigue.
