Heir To The Dragon King. It is undisputed that dragons are extinct, except for strange animals like Komodo dragons and other creatures with odd features. Supposedly, they never existed. Suppose, just suppose, that they did exist, once upon a time. This is the story of what might have been the last interaction between people and dragons. It is also the story of loving couples, kings, queens, and disputes between brothers over a throne and a beautiful duke's daughter. It speaks of the enduring power of love and forgiveness and their power to heal. I wanted to provide an alternative to some of the stereotypes of dragons, and of people, too. If you want to let your imagination explore these possibilities, please read more!

The Dragon S Voice. This is a fascinating account of ancient culture colliding with modern media. Tucked between Tibet and India in the Himalayas, the kingdom of Bhutan is one of the most isolated and beautiful countries in the world. In The Dragon's Voice, Australian journalist Bunty Avieson provides a glimpse of life beyond the country's exotic exterior. As a consultant to local newspaper Bhutan Observer, she admires the paper's strong social conscience, but finds her expectations challenged in a country where spirituality and personal happiness are prioritized over work. Avieson also witnesses the tensions that arise as a Buddhist kingdom makes the transition to democracy. The courtship ritual of "night-hunting" and the nation's first public demonstration become controversial news items, while journalists must overcome traditional social hierarchies to keep politicians accountable. With a unique blend of memoir and reportage, The Dragon's Voice is both a deeply personal story and a vivid portrait of a nation on the cusp of revolutionary change.

Dragon Legends Book One. After fifteen centuries of peaceful unending rule in Thecia, the Praetorian Imperial Dynasty came to an abrupt and shocking end with the assassination of Emperor Titus II, in the year 16187; leaving the world throne vacant without heir and up for grabs. After a long bloody decade of unresolved war and conflict and the tragic loss of tens of thousands of lives, an even greater and more alarming concern arose. A great horror arose from beyond the mountainous north. Long thought to be extinct - long believed to be nothing more than myth - a legend; a children's fairy tale come to life. It had been many millennia since dragons were last said to have flown the skies of Thecia. In the midst of the world's greatest internal turmoil and struggles, dragons had once again been sighted high in the skies above the craggy inaccessible northernmost peaks. Further troubling news came in from the south, as sea dragons had also been sighted in the south-western seas. The time of a global Dragon Rising seemed to be imminent. Even worse, it was rumored the dragons were intelligent. And organized. And it was said the dragons had a King. To most Thecians, it seemed to signal the beginning of the end, and that their doom was nigh; for Draic'Kin and man had never been known to coexist. The civil war was bad enough and had decimated their numbers. But neither man nor army could hope to stand against even a single mighty dragon. Mankind was divided and had no ruler. They had no unity. They were ripe to be conquered and completely obliterated from existence and it was widely believed the dragons had returned to do just that. It looked to be the end of all things. The people had no help, they had no hope, and they had no future. Or did they? ------------- Dragon Legends Book 1: Dragon King Book 2: Dragon Queen Book 3: Dragon Rising
