Iestyn Long lives with his family in the historic village of Lavenham, in the English countryside. He is reasonably tall and narrow, has a shortage of hair and although English he has a Welsh name that is a constant confusion to one and all.

While listening to the tunes of Sir Cliff, Iestyn enjoys observing ants, stroking sparrows and drinking copious amounts of tea. His influences include Monty Python, Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Bernard Cornwall, David Gemmell, J.R.R.Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, Queen Elizabeth the Second, King Arthur and, of course, the legendary Sir Cliff Richard.

Iestyn writes fast-paced Young Adult fiction. Expect adventure, monsters, magic swords and epic battles.

Proper author:

Adorned with its bony collection of stiff arthritic fingers ― the result of a lifetime of de-corking countless bottles of Châteauneuf du Pape and fighting into innumerable tins of spam ― Doreen’s age-wrinkled right hand cupped the cold, smooth crystal as if the drinking vessel were the Holy Grail of Judea itself and the dark velvety liquid brimming inside the divine lifeblood of Chri Read more of this blog post »

Demon Hunters by Iestyn Long
"A tantalizing look into the Demon Hunters’ past
