Yikes! There be DRAGONS here!
Many years ago I chanced to meet one of the most outlandish men I’ve ever known. He lived in Iceland, right outside of Reykjavik. During one of our many alcohol-induced conversations, he told me of a supposed mystical society that called themselves “The Dragos.” My reply was, “hick” (drunken slur)…”and where do they hypothetically live then?” The story was already formulating in my somewhat inebriated mind. Being just sober enough to ask the six deadly questions…who, what, why, when, where and how…he unleashed a torrential flood of information and virtually ALL things DRAGON! Now whether or not any of it was true didn’t matter; what I saw was everything that I could possibly want, to be able to write a story of dragons that blew past descriptive and caught up with HOLY COW! Or in this case…HOLY DRAGON!
This inevitably leads to my next project, “THE EMERALD DRAGON”; which is virtually writing itself right up to and including names, dates, places, species and entire dialogues that allegedly happened in the Dragos’ ancestral home of Mount Drago.
The story opens with Tanis, an ancient warrior called by an emerald dragon; the first to be born in over a thousand years. The saga goes from day to day in Tanis’s struggles to not only learn to be a dragon rider but to interact with and eventually gain the trust of the people of Mount Drago. The two of them must bond together and help create a fighting force for an approaching apocalyptic war.
I have some really cool ideas for this project…so STAY TUNED!!
