About the author:
Storytelling is, for me, a passion. I have acted in and directed stage plays and musical productions, written songs and performed in rock bands. I've done voices in a dramatization for radio. I read voraciously, everything from cereal boxes to classic Greek plays. History, religion, biographies, home remedies, and 'The Bawdy Bedtime Reader' all make for good entertainment.
A well told story transports me into a world entirely imagined. The mind sees and feels and lives with the characters. How else can one ride on the wings of a dragon, except in literature?
You see, I'm a bit of a thrill seeker. Though, a growing sense of mortality forces me to decline those life threatening adventures of a reckless youth. Adventure, now, is mostly found in fantasy novels and the telling of tales.
Fantasy is best, I think, because the only things that are real are the only things that really matter; how we feel, how we think, how we cope with the everyday things that spiral out of our control. It can all be found wrapped in the pages of a good book.
And, all I need is to remember where I put my reading glasses.
Mother Of Dragons
Anaxiunara seeks a place to bear her eggs. She finds a world with a cluster of islands far from any occupied land, and sleeps awhile until her babies mature.
Three hundred years later she awakes to find that her island nest is overrun by humans. One young dragon has befriended a human child. Anaxiunara teaches the young girl to wield powerful magic. But when the Great Dragon meets Ginny's father (Capt. Jo Lee Validad) she discovers a magic more powerful even than she knows. The Great One doesn't know love. If it can be said that a dragon has a weakness, it would be curiosity.
Jo Lee is drawn into a battle to save his family and his island home from a mainland invasion. Anaxiunara takes human form to be with the man, but vows not to intervene. With this strange magic compelling her, can she keep that vow?
