Heap House, Iremonger Book One

Clod is an Iremonger. He lives in the Heaps, a vast sea of lost and discarded items collected from all over London. At the centre is Heap House, a puzzle of houses, castles, homes and mysteries reclaimed from the city and built into a living maze of staircases and scurrying rats. The Iremongers are a mean and cruel family, robust and hardworking, but Clod has an illness. He can hear the objects whispering. His birth object, a universal bath plug, says ‘James Henry Hayward’, Cousin Tummis’ tap is muttering ‘Hilary Evelyn Ward-Jackson’ and something in the attic is shouting ‘Robert Burrington’ and it sounds angry. A storm is brewing over Heap House. The Iremongers are growing restless and the whispers are getting louder. When Clod meets Lucy Pennant, a girl newly arrived from the city, everything changes. The secrets that bind Heap House together begin to unravel to reveal a dark truth that threatens to destroy Clod’s world.

Foulsham, Iremonger Book Two

Lucy Pennant, as a clay button, has been tossed out into the heaving Heaps to be lost forever. Trapped in a half-sovereign coin, Clod Iremonger is being pressed from pocket to cash till, hand to filthy Foulsham street corner. Both must discover who they are on the inside – an object? An Iremonger? A friend? A hero? (to learn more and to visit Foulsham please scroll down)


Lungdon, Iremonger Book Three

The Iremongers are at large in London, the ruins of Foulsham left burning behind them. They need a new home and they intend to find one. Londoners are beginning to notice bizarre happenings in their city – loved ones disappearing, strange objects appearing and a creeping darkness that seems to swallow up the daylight. The Police have summoned help, but is their cure more deadly than the feared Iremongers? What role will Clod play: returning son or rebel? Heartbroken child or hero? And where are all the rats coming from? (to learn more and to visit Lungdon please scroll down)
