    Default Dragons

    Why are dragons so fascinating to both readers and writers? They appear in many different ethnic groups' mythology looking much the same all over except that most Asian groups dragons don't have wings. In the West ours are winged. Some of us collect dragons. My collection is small, but in it is a wooden green dragon staring at me from the corner of the room where he hangs on a hook from the ceiling ever flying towards me as I sit at the computer. My other green dragon has amethyst eyes and purple wings to match and he's made from satin. He sits on my shoulder at book signings. So, naturally, I also write about dragons. Dragon's Pearl, the first book in my A Darkness Of Dragons Trilogy came out June 1 from www.devinedestinies.com. No green dragons in it, though. How many dragons do YOU have? Jane

    Oh wow! I don't know how many there are. I would guesstimate around 50 or so. I'm not sure what the fascination is with dragons, but I adore them. From movies to books to collectibles, dragons are wonderful.
    Happy Reading,

    Xwriter Here there be dragons

    I'm not a dragon person, while our daughter-in-law has a bookcase full of little figurines of dragons, warlocks and the like, but I remember with great pleasure reading the books of Anne McCaffrey long ago.
    Looking around my office, I see only one dragon. It is in a framed print of an old sea chart and has no wings. Below it is the legend, "Here there be Dragons", a warning to seafarers not to venture into the western reaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
    To command a flying, fire-breathing, serpent of great power would be grand thing though...

    I read my first dragon book this year. I read G.A. Aikens' first 3 books in her dragon series and they were great. Book 4 comes out this fall.
