The Dragon Forest II: Son of the Oath

“You must take this sword,” the stranger said,

his hands trembling. “Tell no one.”

The Elf, an elder from the palace, hesitated for a moment,

staring at the glistening steel before him.

He recognized the filigree on the blade.

He looked up at the stranger and studied his eyes.

“Take it, you fool!” the stranger shouted.

Then he grabbed the Elf’s wrist and

placed the hilt of the sword in his hand.

“Guard it with your life,” the stranger said,

looking deep into the Elf’s eyes.

Then he wrapped his fur cape around his neck.

“They will be coming for it soon.”

He turned and left the Elf standing

where he had found him, in the doorway of the darkened cave.

School Visit-Madison Meadows

Had a GREAT time with the fine students of Madison Meadows elementary school today!!

Me and Anjali Moore- the daughter of my editor, Christopher

BIG crowd of students!!

Anjali introduced me. She did a great job!!

Talking about what it takes to write a book and get one published. I liken it to
running a marathon! Lots of pain....but worth it in the end.

THANK YOU Madison Meadows for allowing
me to come talk to your fine students. They had
 interesting questions for me. I hope they enjoy the artwork
and the STAR WARS
painting I gave them.

School Visit

I had the AWESOME privilege to visit Madison Park Elementary school today to talk about The Dragon Forest and my artwork.

The students were so well behaved and kind! I truly enjoyed my time with them....

I met one little girl who is also an artist and we talked art and writing. Another girl told me I inspired her...sigh. That makes it all worth while.

Thank You, Lord, for such a wonderful visit and for all the joy my little book brings me.
