. . .  past, present and future collide. Things the characters never before thought about come to life and pull them into startling events set in the 13th and 21st centuries. This has nothing to do with ghosts, the story is as real as the words you are reading right now.

In 13th century France during the time of the crusades against the Cathars, two young lovers call out to the 21st century from Beyond The Pyre. Catharine, an adept spiritual traveler hears the call and realizes the importance of her connection with Elionor, a 13th century noblewoman. There is a treasure that must survive the centuries and be kept out of the human domain. The women are central to the survival of the treasure and they must keep it out of the hands of Les Deux, servants of a dark master.

Historical fact merges with fiction which merges with Spirit and mysticism. This story is as much about the authors spiritual journey as it is a gripping story about survival, new relationships, loss of loved ones and the tenacity of the human race to make sense from chaos.

Beyond The Pyre is published by Austin Macauley on June 30th 2017 and available in Digital, Hardback and Paperback formats (Read down for ISBN’s).
