Hello! Welcome to my website. This is where I will share with you all news about my historical novels and tree books.

My first historical novel is now out and I’m excited to share with you the adventures of my hero Tom Tyler. The first book, As the Sparks Fly Upwards, follows Tom on a journey to stay alive and rebuild his life after he loses everything and is cast out into the middle of the English Civil War.

I have previously published Urban Trees: A Practical Management Guide, written using my decades of experience in the arboriculture industry.

Cracking read, l couldn’t put the book down. By the end of the story I felt as though I’d been on a journey with the characters, and we are now good friends. I can’t wait to see what they get up to in the next book.

An enjoyable first novel from Steve Cox... Set during the civil war in the 1600's and located in familiar localities in Dorset, I almost felt I could smell the smoke from the fires and hear my stomach rumbling with the hunger!! It'll be great to see what the characters do next...

Considering its not the kind of genre I would generally find myself gravitating towards... I'm so glad I read this book! Found myself really swept up in the story and the characters and as the book gathered momentum - struggled to put it down!
