Fangs, Talons, and Scales!
No, it isn’t Halloween, also known as All Hallow’s Eve, or Samhain, but there be dragons!
I write paranormal romance and my latest series, Clan of Dragons, is filled with dragons. When dealing with mythological creatures instead of actual wildlife, the writer has a certain freedom over other writers, which is why my dragons live in Scotland’s Black Cuillin Hills on the Isle of Skye.
Dragons have certain traits such as scales, talons, wings, fangs, spiked tails, etc. However, as a writer I can make my dragon purple with copper-colored wings, as I did in SPARK, the first book in my new series. Or, I can make my current hero a green dragon with snow-white wings as I did in SMOKE, the 2nd book which I just released! I can make my dragons speak, shift into humans, and fall in love.
This freedom-to twist and turn creatures in order to enhance my story-is why I love to write about dragons. If you love dragons, Scotland, men in wool plaides, and romance, check out my newest series, Clan of Dragons.
