Q: Can you sum up the Ella in 20 words or less?

A prince adopts a dragon egg, and it leads to a big adventure. 

Q: Ella is, of course, book 1 in your The Land of Four series. What inspired you to write this series?

From just all the fantasy novels I have read in the last twenty years. Reading from J.R.R. Tolkien…C.S. Lewis, and George R. Martin. They created worlds, and got their readers addicted! 

Q: Do you have a favorite book in the series?

Ella is my baby and my first. It has been many readers’ favorite. 

Q: Which of the characters did you find the most challenging to write?

Dain was a supporting character that the protagonist meets when his life is becoming complicated. Dain has a dark past that he does not mention a lot til later on. That he becomes a mentor to Liam. 

Q: Do you have a favorite character in the series?

Ella is so unique. She was an egg and became a dragon. Becoming an important part of Liam’s life. 

Q: What feedback do you get from readers?

People have loved my style of writing, and some prefer other ways.
