Short bio Born in Kansas, I spent a lot of my childhood
moving around. I've lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington State (around
Seattle), and southern California. I had many great adventures growing up. I'm
now settled down in Kansas with my wonderful husband, three children, my
wonderful dog Katie, assorted cats, and small flock of chickens.
1.Where's the strangest place you've ever written?
The break room at my old job.
2.What book do you wish you had written?
3.What inspires you? Music
4.When did you start writing? I’ve been writing
since I was a young girl
5.Tell us three things about you that aren’t about
writing. I have chickens, I’ve been married for 18 years, and up until this
past summer, I raised dairy goats. The price of hay and feed went up so much it
became cost prohibitive to keep them. But I miss them.
“A ray of light, a stain of shadow,
shall endure to breathe life and death into the future”
As a Border Guard, it is Vaddoc’s
duty to turn himself in and accept the death sentence with honor when he
discovers he can use magic. But the ancient song of the dragons calls to him.
Although pulled by duty and the honor of his family, the song proves
irresistible. When he is offered sanctuary in Galdrilene, the old home of the
dragons, he leaves duty and family behind to answer the call of the Song.
He is not alone in hearing the
Dragon Song. The elements of magic are drawn together when he is joined by
Kirynn, Kellinar, Serena, and finally, Mckale and Maleena who are bound to each
other in a way they don’t yet understand. It’s a journey that reveals
everything they have been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.
With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, Vaddoc and his companions
will do anything, even cross through the realm of the dead, to reach a future
they never thought possible.
