About Us

The Short Version

Arian Derwydd Books, LLC, is the brainchild of Mychael Johnson-Cook. Mychael writes as Mychael Black (LGBT+), Carys Seraphine (m/f), and Katherine Cook (fantasy). He decided to start Arian Derwydd Books to publish many of his books he couldn’t find a suitable home for elsewhere.

Behind the Name

With a Welsh (actually, Celtic all-around) ancestry, Mychael chose words from the Welsh language to name his publishing company. ‘Arian’ means silver, and ‘Derwydd’ is the word for Druid.
