Ruby, Nolan, Bonnie, and Shamus tell their parents they are going on a picnic. They plan to meet Donzereli and his dragon friends for an exciting dragon flight. Dr. Allen bribes an invitation for the dragon ride! They discover that he is just a big kid!
The kid’s unease starts when arriving at the Dragons Mountain Keep. They are greeted by Donzereli’s parents, who do not look pleased. The group’s unease grows when they discover the dragons are prepared with rooms and clothes in their sizes.
They are thrilled with the Sky Mall and solar-powered flying cars that park themselves in the garage. A formal dinner with the adult Dragons, not so much! The thrill ends when the kids learn their parents are arriving to take them home for punishment.
Donzereli borrows a flying car without permission and arranges an exciting adventure. Dr. Allen was invited to come along on a deep-sea fishing trip!
What could go wrong with a fishing trip?
Time to meet “The Others!”

Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die.
I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect?
Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing.
My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda.
Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated.
I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.”
I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class.
After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome.
I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.
