Looking for a new series? I have one for you. D.R. Grady is here to spill about her latest release The Dragon Chronicles, Book One: Learning. Sometimes when life throws you for a loop, you just have to enjoy the ride. You never know what great things might come out of it.
Like many people, I had an image in my mind of what I wanted my life to be. Things were going pretty well, and then I got a rash. Soon the rash spread. It spread so much that I ended up visiting nine different doctors. One of them, a dermatologist who I still see, mentioned the dreaded word, “lupus.”
I don’t have lupus. But I do have an autoimmune illness, and the ninth doctor on the list gave me a specific diagnosis. I have dermatomyositis. It’s a skin and muscle inflammation illness, and is under control right now. Fortunately.
There I had life all planned out and then BAM! Life was utterly derailed. It took one little rash to alter the course of my life and that’s when THE DRAGON CHRONICLES series came about. In the first book, LEARNING, Lindy, a carefree elf, makes the terrible discovery she’s a dragon. And Alex, the man she’s having difficulties with, is her dragon controller.
Sometimes when life derails us, you find something within you never knew was lurking there…
“Was there a fire?” Keely brushed wayward curls from her cheek.
“Yes.” Alex’s eyes swept over Lindy, then dismissed her.
Keely gasped. “What caused it?”
“We think some fire elementals might be coming into their powers. Fortunately it was caught immediately and some water elementals managed to put it out.”
“When can we go back to bed?” An English professor whose name escaped her spoke up.
“In a few minutes.” Alex scribbled something on the bottom of the paper.
“Every wing is being checked by the fire department. They’ll give us the signal when they’re finished.” With those words, Phil nipped away, probably to finish his head counting.
The blanket swathed around Lindy slipped and with an absent air she caught it. Another section drooped, so she unwrapped the covering in order to wind the material more securely around her.
As her attention drifted to the heavy muscles of Alex’s chest, his eyes narrowed on her. Lindy actually turned around to see what he was scowling about.
No one else stood in his direct line of vision. She returned his ill-tempered frown. Fortunately, Keely snagged her attention with a question.
She hated having people mad at her, but this was different. What had happened in those first few seconds of their meeting to change his mind about her? The answer eluded her. Her fists curled.
Well, it’s not your problem, is it? She didn’t know what had happened, but her course of action remained the same—continue to avoid him.
Though she’d have to forget all about his yummy chest and those amazing arms.
