For hundreds of years, the gates of Tarragon have been sealed from the outside. Prophecy speaks of the day the last Key Keeper will return and wake the dragons from their spell-cast slumber, returning them to their rightful home.

Seeking to fulfill her father’s dying wish, Anwen Porter travels to the Drakonii Mountains where she meets Tyler, a mysterious local with a secret. With his help, she learns more about her clouded past and her own abilities. But when Courtney, a lovesick mage, tries to insert herself into their plans, things begin to go horribly wrong.

With death threatening at every turn, Anwen must learn to rely on her newfound friends to survive. But how can she unravel the mystery of her heritage when everything is trying to kill her?

Top Ten List:

 

Top Ten People I would like to meet.

 

1. J.R.R. Tolkien. I mean, who wouldn’t want to meet the “father” of fantasy?

2. J.K. Rowling. If she can make it with an oddball fantasy series, surely I can too, and I’d love to pick her brain about that.

3. Joan of Ark – I think her life story is just fascinating.

4. C.S. Lewis – He was an amazing writer. Can’t imagine what life would be like without Narnia.

5. Robin McKinley – She’s always been one of my fave fantasy authors. I have a few bones to pick though, about hinted stories that never got written.

6. Mark Twain – He seems like he’d have been a great guy to know.

7. Albert Einstein – Would love to meet the man who contributed so much to how we see the world.

8. King Charlemagne – An ancestor on both sides of the family, I understand he was one of the first people to instigate a public education system for his people. That, and he had some really cool things happen in his life. 

9. Harrison Ford – He’s one of my fave actors of all time. He’s just awesome.

10. Danny Kaye – Another childhood favorite actor, I think Danny and I would have gotten along swimmingly. That, and the fact that he sang like a dream, even though he couldn’t read a note of music.

Q&A with the Author:

What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you defeat it?

I think the thing I struggle most with is finding the time, and sometimes motivation, to work on any project. With a lot of projects on my plate, it’s sometimes super hard to not just throw my hands up in the air and call it done. When those times happen, I take a breather, work on another project for a while, then come back with fresh eyes. Seems to work every time.

What kind of music do you listen to while you write?

The kind of music I listen to depends on what kind of story/scene I’m working on. I have specific playlists based on the general story, the type of scene, and what emotional response I want to draw from my characters as I’m writing. Those lists are constantly changing, so it’s hard to pinpoint what will be on any list at any given time. But for Tarragon, I’ve been listening to a lot of Lindsey Sterling and Imagine Dragons, with some techno and remixes mixed in.

Snippet

“When are you going to tell her?”

Tyler opened his eyes at Courtney’s question. “Tell her what, exactly?”

Courtney didn’t meet his eyes as she rummaged in her pack for something to munch on. “About what you are.” She pulled out a packet of granola and opened it.

Tyler’s eyes went amber for a brief moment, but returned to their usual blue. “I don’t know. One thing at a time, I guess. She’s already been through a lot. I don’t want to overwhelm her.”

“A bit late for that, don’t you think,” Courtney understated with a roll of her eyes. “She’s been attacked, knocked out, drowned, and who knows what else. I’m sure hearing you’re a dragon will hardly make a dent in the bucket, if you know what I mean.”

Tyler smiled at that. “True. But what if I’m not ready to tell her?”

Snippets

Snippet 1: A breeze seemed to swirl around inside the enclosure. It swept the dust particles upwards in a spiral, much like powdered snow when stirred by a quick passage of air. Except that shapes began to form inside the column of swirling sand.

Anwen moved forward in eagerness, not sure what was going on, or how the sand managed to stay within the confines of the circle. But it was what was happening inside the swirl of dust that caught her attention.

Small clouds of sand began to form striking images. They reminded her of the puppets from the festival, some long and lean, with others shorter and stockier. Most had wings protruding from joints just below sinuous necks, or further down long spiny backs. One figure reared its head and spouted a swirl of gold colored-dust that undulated like flames.

Dragons.
