William Holdsworth

W. A. Holdsworth lives in Michigan and attended the University of Michigan, Oakland University, and Michigan State University, earning an engineering degree and an MBA. He’s worked as a business and government consultant, and now serves as a Director for one of the largest counties in the U.S. An avid reader of adventure novels, he didn’t begin writing until his late thirties while working and raising a family. A fan of the Arthurian legend, he wanted to bring the story of Arthur and Camelot into the modern world with a series of novels that are both exciting and meaningful. The result was Traverse, and its sequel Novum Orbis Regium. He is now writing the next book in the trilogy.

Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite
“Traverse is a political thriller by W.A. Holdsworth. While recuperating from an attempted suicide, William MacCrarey meets Merrill MaGeah, a member of a Clan founded in the fifth century, CE. Merrill informs MacCrarey that he’s King Arthur’s heir and takes him to meet the Clan Keeper. Kyle Dunham briefs MacCrarey on his historical legacy. The Clan wants him to continue Arthur's work bringing peaceful democracy worldwide. Under their guidance, he becomes the US Deputy Ambassador to the UN. This stalls the inhumane scheme that Undersecretary Gerhardt Schoen and his boss, Renee Boujeau, have for the UN. They send Arthur’s heir on a peacekeeping mission to Cyprus, knowing he’s too inexperienced to handle the political turmoil. I previously read Novum Orbis Regium, Book 2, and saw the differences in his character and how he dealt with problems in both thrillers. Clan members also fascinated me, especially Merrill and Kyle. It amused me to see how they got things done without attracting attention to themselves. Traverse: The Last Heir of Arthur is an intriguing novel with an informative segment on the functions of the UN and the roles of participating countries. W.A. Holdsworth is an author I recommend following if you want a gripping book to read.”
