Welcome to my author’s website. I write “original history”: novels based on little-known people or events surrounding popular history. It’s my hope that, when you read one of my books, you will not only enjoy an interesting story, but have the opportunity to experience a different way of life.

I want to feel what it’s like to be a painter, a pirate, an explorer, an outlaw; I hope you’ll come on the journey.

The Scarlet Forest:

A Tale of Robin Hood

 

You are invited underneath the great greenwood tree to hear how a young man became a hero, and a hero became a legend. Blending true history with new stories, and some almost forgotten medieval legends, The Scarlet Forest: A Tale of Robin Hood brings a new life to the greenwood, which here feels as fresh as it does traditional. With an academic background in medieval English studies, A. E. Chandler captivates with this unique and nuanced reinterpretation of Robin Hood’s struggles and adventures. The forest is waiting.

This bestselling novel is now out in an expanded 2nd edition - also available as an audio book.

The 2nd edition includes more bonus material, like a translation of one of the five surviving medieval "ballads," and two medieval recipes.
