Welcome to this brand new website dedicated to all things Pyronesia!

The Pyronesian Chronicles is a series of seven young adult fantasy novels in which I have indulged my childhood love of monsters. Ranging from mythical beasts of ancient legend to outrageous robots and perhaps even dinosaurs, you’ll find all of them in the pages of these books.

The first novel - The Beasts of Upton Puddle - will be published in September this year, but you’ll have to wait for future announcements to find out about the others. Until then there will plenty of things happening to whet your appetite until the book hits the stores:

Each week, there will be a new mini-story posted on Wattpad for you to read where you can find out about some of the exotic creatures that Mrs Merrynether discovered on the islands surrounding Pyronesia. You’ll even find pictures of them in the Bibliocrypt section of this site. The first story is already waiting for you.

And there’s even a Cluricaun waiting to hear your tales of woe. If you’re in need of advice and you’ve exhausted all sensible options, turn to Lilly - he’s never short of a few words. Just go to the Ask Lilly page.
