Bio

Ned-SmallHi. I’m Ned Hayes, and I write literary fiction and historical novels, including the national bestseller The Eagle TreeGo here for a complete list of my books

I also write dark fantasy (SF/F) under the name Nicholas Hallum, like my new novel Wilderness of Mirrors, which describes a secret history behind the War on Terror.  I write in two names just so readers will know what to expect… not because I think one genre is better than another.
