SPARK: Dragons in a New Book

iStock_83015149_XLARGE_edited-2I love dragons, and I have written several paranormal stories where the main characters are these mythical creatures. Shape-shifting dragons make the most sense since my stories are filled with romance. Dragons can be romantic…and they can be stubborn, heroic, difficult, dangerous, ‘human’, or evil.

What makes my characters and my stories different is that most take place in Scotland (Southern Fried Dragon was an aberration. I set it in Charleston, South Carolina on the eve of the Civil War. My heroine was a female shape-shifting Scottish dragon hiding out in America.) Besides the mythical Loch Ness monster, reported to dwell in the long, deep lake near Inverness, dragons are part of the tales passed down through Scottish clans.

Fictional locations are fine, but I set my new series, Clan of Dragons, on the Island of Skye. When I discovered their unusual mountains, known as the Black Cuillin Hills, I immediately knew I’d found a home for my dragons.

Here is one of many YouTube videos I discovered while researching the location. These awesome mountains have a volcanic history and are black, treeless, craggy, and desolate. Perfect!

Please help me celebrate

  2. Dragons are a wonderful fantasy. So in my fantasy world, they definitely exist. Thank you for continuing to entertain with your wonderful stories.

  3. Sounds great. I’ve been through the Cuillin and I agree it’s a perfect setting for a novel. Can’t wait to hear more about it. 🙂

    • You are a lucky woman! I will have to do with watching others who have posted their videos on YouTube. Have you seen the fairy pools? I included several scenes that include them, as well.
