GUEST POST

Inspiration



I get asked: How did you come up with the idea for this book? A lot. It started with a dream. In it was a girl who was taken from home to be sacrificed to a deity. While on the alter, a handsome man came to rescue her, took her home, and promised her his kingdom if she agreed to be his. When I woke up, I took those details and started to fill in all of the gaps and that's how I got the dragon's saga.



The other books started to come about because as I wrote the first novel, other stories began to take shape. Why were the Inero doing what they were doing? As I stopped to think about that, I started getting the idea for “Legend of the Inero Dragon”. The next book, tentatively titled “Legend of the Touched” will bring both of the first two books together and conclude their stories. There are five books total planned and a short story. Book four and five are going to include a new cast of characters and dive further into the story of The Great Dragon.


Of course, I can't spill all of my secrets. I'll just say it involves romance, betrayal, and magic.

Darien Oceina is the youngest son of the Great Dragon Lord of the Water. For years he's loved and cherished Tai Dawson from afar. Tai is a simple, ordinary girl who doesn't even know Darien exists. On his eighteenth birthday, he chooses her as his wife. But there’s one problem: She thinks his choice means she's going to be offered as a sacrifice to the Dragon Lord, but instead, she’s forced to move to his home, far away, to give up her life and be his bride.

When she first sees Darien after the ceremony, she doesn’t expect to feel anything but hatred toward him. The two are struggling with the complications of a new marriage when their nation is attacked by a rival dragon species. Together they learn to love one another while they struggle to stay one step ahead in a game where the prize is their survival.

Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero are the favorite sons of the great dragon lord of fire. More often than not they get whatever they want. Matt wants to do great things for his people while Jason wants to go off and explore the world. Both can have what they desire, but not until they take a bride and enter into adulthood.

Enter Kat and Gwen, two girls from very different backgrounds. Kat is happy to leave her home when the royal guard comes to bring her to loving arms of her childhood sweetheart, Matt. Gwen on the other hand is livid to be taken from her farm only to be thrust into Jason's life, and he's not to thrilled with the idea either. They have one year to find happiness with each other, or else they will be placed at the mercy of the ruthless dragon lord Lynx. Favorite or not, dragon law must be obeyed.

As their nation begins to prepare for war against a neighboring tribe, the brothers find themselves as key components in the battle plans. A dark prophet has had a vision of Inero victory, but at what cost? Both must decide where their loyalties lie and what they're willing to sacrifice – including each other – to achieve their goals.
