Welcome to my website,
I’m author Graham Clews.


Rome wasn’t built in a day and it has taken me several months to complete volume IV of the second Eboracum series. We move forward three hundred years to AD 388, which is another way of saying that there’s No Turning Back, which is the name of the book. While the first Eboracum trilogy takes place during the founding of Eboracum, No Turning Back is set at a time when Rome began the process of abandoning Britain; or, to phrase it another way, for Eboracum it was the “Beginning of the End” of Roman rule (my second title choice). Order No Turning Back and get your historical action and adventure fix by clicking here or at any other of the usual outlets.


My characters in No Turning Back have kept me going… and as before, this will likely prove to be another trilogy. Volume V, as yet to be named, is coming out in 2018 or early 2019.

In this book Rome’s armies, now having been mostly withdrawn for a decade and a half, now return with an expeditionary force under the command of General Stilicho. He is charged with countering the ever increasing incursions from the North, Hibernia and the Saxons.

 

Most of the characters found in No Turning Back were featured in Book V, along with a fair spattering of new individuals, some of whom don’t even know they as yet exist. Those from Book IV have reached a certain maturity as they age, as have their children, who must face their own problems as they become adults in a turbulent time. Just as with every volume in the Eboracum series, this will be a separate book in itself.

 

As for other writerly “goings on,” I’m scribing the odd frustrated letter on the dreadful political state of the country. I’ve also lapsed into writing poetry for occasional relief (but you gotta be in the mood).       



A Slightly Tainted Hero


Dave Lockwood is an accountant. He just turned sixty and he’s feeling old--mainly in body rather than mind. Then there’s his office manager, Irene Blanchard. She’s about twenty years younger, about the age Dave’s mind seems to think it is as it valiantly labours to adjust to his ‘maturing’ body. Which is why he unwisely confronts a mugger while escorting Irene to an underground parking lot in downtown Edmonton. Oh, and the mugger is armed.

Politically Detained


Across Canada people gripe about politicians, but never do anything about it. There’s a reason: they can’t. So why try? After all, how do you form a special interest group when you’re in the majority? How do you get the message to the elected if it costs votes? How do you fight apathy when so many people are too busy to care?

The Eboracum Trilogy


Graham’s historical fiction work: a three novel trilogy centred on the founding of York (Eboracum), in the years that followed the Roman invasion of Britain.

Eboracum, No Turning Back (Book IV)


Graham leaps forward three centuries to AD 388, a year when Rome executes General Magnus Maximus for his presumptuous ambitions on the continent. Through necessity, however, Rome retains Briton’s legions that Maximus brought with him. It is a decision that begins a two decade journey of abandonment that will eventually leave Eboracum to fend for herself. No Turning Back is the first book in a brand new Eboracum trilogy that takes the reader through to Rome’s total troop withdrawal in AD 407. The title No Turning Back implies a hard truth that applies equally to both Rome and the decanus Dagual Arbitius, a desperate soldier who finds himself on the wrong side in the impending chaos.

The Sound of Silence


Silence is the strongest ally of the pedophile. It is, in fact, his only ally. He (nearly all pedophiles are ‘he’) relies on silence. He’s helped by the fact that his sordid actions instill needless shame in young victims, an emotion that will often keep them silent forever. This is why one pedophile’s victims will often number in the hundreds--and most will never say a word. I, for more years than I care to mention, was one of them...
