DYLAN MCFINN & THE SEA SERPENT'S FURY 

Summer 2019

“No matter how small you think you are, you can all change the world with one single thought or action. All you have to do is believe that you can. Therein lies the magic.”

Dylan McFinn is an ordinary twelve-year-old. Ordinary, that is, if you ignore the fact that he lives deep under the Pacific Ocean with his sea-captain father Culbert, his annoying little brother Axneus, and his mother Varuna – who is most definitely not a mermaid.Ordinary, too, if you ignore the mysterious power he doesn’t know he possesses.


For Dylan’s birthday, Culbert takes the family on a trip to his homeland. He remembers the island of Maloto as a beautiful, tranquil place, but something has changed in the fourteen years since he left. Dark forces are threatening the peace, and his old friend Marvin – an environmental warrior last seen fishing plastic from the ocean – has disappeared.Axneus, though, seems more interested in the shiny black stone he stole from Eric at Neptune’s Tower. What is its secret? And where exactly is Neptune’s Tower, anyway?As he battles monsters and maelstroms on his first day as a teenager, Dylan McFinn discovers that he can be an awful lot more than he imagines and a nostalgic trip to the past was more than just a rite of passage. It was a passage to his destiny

LIAM JENKINS - AUTHOR

BIO

Liam has always had a vivid imagination and real love of the sea. A trip to the magical Island of Madeira spawned the creation of Dylan McFinn.


He has always enjoyed writing, working for a number of PR & Marketing agencies, writing copy for blogs & articles on the health & safety aspect of a new pair of gloves "that's a true story!"

His love of the sea has always been with him ever since he was young. He was always drawn to the sea and loved being close to it or in it! He remembers watching "JAWS" for the first time when he was eight in my bed room, trying not to wake his Mum & Dad only to be utterly captivated and petrified at the same time.

He was never the same again.  

A self published debut novelist. His first book being Dylan McFinn & The Sea Serpent’s Fury, the first instalment of the Dylan McFinn Chronicles. He is currently writing five books of this series. The Second, Dylan McFinn & The Temple of The Four Winds is due in early 2020.

The Dylan McFinn series features a kind and loving twelve year old boy blissfully unaware of his heritage and destiny. As he battles monsters and maelstroms on his first day as a teenager, Dylan McFinn discovers that he can be an awful lot more than he imagines and a nostalgic trip to the past was more than just a right of passage. It was a passage to his destiny.

Liam lives in a picturesque leafy suburb in East Hampshire with his wife Jennifer.
