A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my Dragonath series. I like to describe it as an epic fantasy with a twist. It's got dragons (book 2) and a Formbender (also book 2!) but the main character is from Earth. There's a healthy mix of paranormal elements, and the story at times can get quite dark (and graphic in Awakening and Call to War) so proceed with caution! Dragonath isn't for the faint of heart!
This series will always hold a special place in my heart, as it's the series that launched my career as an author. The Lost Heir, especially, means a great deal to me. Although I began writing it for fun in 2001, I didn't take writing seriously until my mom's death in 2011.
I truly had no idea about writing or publishing, and had no idea where I wanted the story to go, but I knew I needed to sit my ass in the chair and finish the book in my mom's memory. She was a huge book lover, and although she would never be able to read it, I wanted to do one last thing for her.
Writing The Lost Heir helped me cope with her death and come to terms with the layers of grief that I didn't particularly want to face. There are situations and emotions that made their way into the series, and I learned much in the process. My writing has evolved greatly since I penned The Lost Heir, but the memories this series conjures, though difficult to recall, are precious.
