Priest by day, writer at odd times of the day and night, I live with a small green parrot called Tilly because the upkeep for a dragon is beyond my current budget. Plus I'm responsible for making good any flame damage to church property. I love 'Doctor Who', landscape photography, single malt whisky, and my job, in no particular order. When I'm not looking after a small parish church in the Midlands (England) I like to go on far flung adventures to places like Peru, New Zealand, and North Korea.

Bishop Nigel smiled at me. ‘Holy water doesn't harm vampires. Which is just as well, as it would make it impossible to baptise them.'

When I was asked by a dragon to give him the last rites, I never dreamed it would lead to negotiating with his cannibalistic family or running from snail sharks. Life as the priest of a small English village is quite tame in comparison. At least I have Morey, a gryphon with sarcasm management issues, to help me. And if all else fails, there's always red wine and single malt whisky.

As if my life weren't complicated enough, a darkly beautiful dragon named Raven keeps appearing where I least expect him, I've met a handsome police inspector who loves science fiction as much as I do, and my younger brother is getting into trouble for trying to pick up vampires.

That's what happens when you're dealing with an incredible and dangerous parallel world full of mythical creatures. And I have to learn to navigate it all without losing myself, or my brother…

'This is a novel that everyone should read. It has so many layers; religion, humor, friendship, family, marriage, and social norms. Everyone can find something to love. I haven't been able to stop talking about it! It's original, refreshing, and delightful!' ★★★★★  Readers' Favorite

'The world is richly penned with fully developed larger-than-life characters, a beautiful and believable world, and a premise that will tickle the fancy of anyone who loves a decent mystery wrapped in a shroud of fantasy. ...A nearly flawless tale of a flawed woman doing her best with humor and faith, though not always with dignity, in a strange new world, this is one magical creation not to be missed!'  ★★★★ 1/2 InD'Tale Magazine

Raven's ears flicked. ‘Dragons aren't known for their patience.'
‘More is the pity,' said the unicorn. ‘Father Penny and I were about to amicably settle our differences. A dragon invading our home vastly complicates matters.'

Five months ago my life was changed forever when I learned about Lloegyr, the sister nation to England on the magical parallel world of Daear. Thrilling rides on Raven, a darkly beautiful search dragon, break up the monotony of my life as the priest of a small village church. Nor are things dull at home, not with a sarcastic gryphon, a snail shark, and my younger brother all sharing my living space. And then there's Peter, the almost too perfect police inspector who enjoys Doctor Who and single malt whisky as much as I do.

But Lloegyr is facing its own struggles. As various races such as dragons, gryphons, elves, vampires, and harpies flood to the rapidly growing cities, they all trust the unicorns to act as peace makers. But dead humans are turning up in the city of Northampton, with wounds which only a long spiral horn could have made…

'A compelling and witty sequel to Temptation of Dragons! Penny is a fantastic heroine because she doesn't think of herself as such. ...Chrys Cymri perfectly captures this blend of humor, honesty, reality, and fantasy.' ★★★★★  Readers' Favorite

'Author Chrys Cymri delivers a first-rate humorous read.' ★★★★1/2 InD'tale Magazine

A blast of wind flicked hair from my face. Long toes wrapped around my waist, claws prickling through fur and clothing as I was snatched from the ground. The dragon lifted me high into the grey skies above Llundain. Of the many words going through my head, Oh, bother, was the only one worthy of a priest.

When I'd discovered the existence of Daear, Earth's magical parallel world, I thought all of my dreams had come true. Riding the handsome dragon, Raven, arguing with my gryphon Associate, Morey, and raising Clyde, a mischievous snail shark, lessen the monotony of my life as the priest of a small village church. And I've also met Peter, a man who agrees with me that Doctor Who and single malt whisky are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

But Raven has gone missing, and finding him would mean a hazardous trip to the Arctic. Morey's attempts to prove himself worthy of marriage to his love, Taryn, are putting all of us in danger, particularly my younger brother, James. Can I keep those I love safe in a world which has little love for humans?

'Fun, witty, powerful, Penny White and the Marriage of Gryphons is another delightful adventure that's addictive past the last page.' ★★★★★  Readers' Favorite

'Entertaining and fast moving, "The Marriage of Gryphons" is a must-read for fantasy fans!' ★★★★ InD'tale Magazine

‘You've never told Clyde?' Peter asked. ‘About what happened to his mother?'

‘How can I?' My pen drew an outline of a shovel on my notepad. ‘I killed her with a gardening tool.'

Life certainly hasn't been dull since my first visit to Lloegyr, a magical country which parallels England. My household now includes a family of cat-sized gryphons and a hymn-singing snail shark, and I'm visited regularly by Raven, a darkly beautiful dragon. And I enjoy the excitement of planning our wedding day with Peter, my handsome fiancé.

But Lloegyr offers danger as well as wonder. My brother is recovering after being hunted by a pack of gryphons. I was dismissed from my dream position as minister of a church in Lloegyr. And something non-human seems to be stalking Peter.

Then there's the mystery of Clyde's true identity. Is he just a large carnivorous snail who loves beer and children's TV programmes? Or does his unusual shell point to a far greater destiny, one which could threaten everyone who knows him?

'In true Penny White fashion, Vengeance of Snails is charming and emotional, perfectly blending nerdy fun, religion, and different cultures.' ★★★★★  Readers' Favorite

I stared at my shopping list, wondering what any normal human would make of it. ‘One box of communion wafers. Six bottles of fortified wine. Several pints of goat's blood for the curate?'

 After an extended stay in the magical country of Lloegyr, I'm ready to resume life as the priest of a small village church. Clyde needs time to heal from his wounds, I've been given a vampire deacon to train, and Peter and I have to make some important decisions before our wedding day.

But the problems of Lloegyr have followed me home. Raven is still recovering from the Spirit Ceremony. The vampires living in my church are being unreasonable. My back garden is slowly filling with snail sharks. And Her Majesty's Government wants me to find out why vampire colonies are emigrating to England.

I love Peter, but there are so many other demands in my life. Will he accept that there are just some things I cannot give him?
