Yes, I am back from the dead and raring to go!   Unfortunately, life has gotten in the way and I am ashamed to say that my social media has suffered because of it. The Emerald Dragon,” Book One of the Dragomeir Series is finally finished and is now available in various formats at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Lulu, Kobo, Apple i-bookstore, and Smashwords.

Gentlemen . . . It’s time to start your engines!

The Emerald Dragon Character Contest Winners

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I apologize for going on hiatus for the last two weeks…I won’t trouble you with specifics, but let’s just say that I was caught up in some family drama. But I am back and raring to go!!

  • THE EMERALD DRAGON CHARACTER CONTEST WINNERS!

Due to technical difficulties, there was an unfortunate delay in announcing the winners on the blog, but I would like to extend a big CONGRATULATIONS TO…

Jacob Overton  &  Joe Russomanno

Here is Jacob’s character and dragon:

Here is Joe’s character and dragon:

Character: Sergei Rasputin Cosmonov; Sergei is the son which resulted from the unions of the first woman turned demon Lilith and her mate Samael. A repented demon spawn who has been alive to witness the rise and fall of every human civilization. He stands over 6 feet tall with a sinewy rangy build black hair, hazel green eyes and in his true form skin red as blood. He prefers to handle things diplomatically but is no stranger to violence.  He is known to wear a wide-brimmed hat and trench-coat made from a leather-like material.
