The Dragon Dreamer is a fast-paced adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and an unlikely friendship. It’s a science fantasy layered for readers age 9 to 99.
Arak is a misfit dragon called “Dreamer”. Determined to prove himself he leaves on a dangerous quest, is caught in a fierce sea-storm, and crashes on ice. Wounded and alone he faces death. Then a fearless undersea shape-shifter named Scree heals him and an unlikely friendship begins. When an undersea volcano erupts it triggers a towering tsunami and a deadly chain of events. Can Arak use his unique talents to save the dragons?
Hello J. S. Thank you for taking the time to stop in and chat with us, it is lovely to have you.
Thank you so much, Nicole, for inviting me to be a part of this!
1.How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
I’m now imagining sequels, which stretches my mind. I understand how to write a novel, so I don’t waste time.
2.What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?
Of under-appreciated known authors, I like Alan Dean Foster’s books for scifi and Mary Jo Putney’s books for historical romance. I believe many novels by indie authors would be famous if readers knew of them, and I couldn’t choose just one. I’m impressed by the enormous pool of talented writers! So much imagination!
3.What are your hardest scenes to write? And what are what are the easiest to write for you?
The easiest scenes for me have life-threatening danger. They just roll off my fingers! Give me a horrific storm or a nice tsunami, and I’m doing a happy dance. I don’t have any scenes that are particularly hard to write; the difficulty for me lies in determining what will happen.
4.If one or more of your books would be selected for motion pictures, would you prefer it be a TV series or Movie and why?
I’d be thrilled with either! A movie would be awesome. I can see this in my head, with Arak swooping low over the sea, dangerously dipping his wing into water. Scree would be amazing with her shape-shifting and color-changing.
A series would be fun, too, with more time to know the characters and their world.
5.What’s the best way to market your books?
I wish I knew. 🙂 I’ve heard that it’s wise to invest hugely in online ads. Business cards can help find homes for books, too. Thank you so much for having me here!
This was fun, again thank you so much for taking the time to chat. You’re awesome!
