Dragons on their own World, and a Dragon on Earth



The survival of a species rests on the shoulders of a youngster who must convince not just her own clan, but all the clans, to unite in the fight to save them before they end up Forever Gone.


Alex refuses to reveal the secret of the Azure Dragon.  Instead, she hides.  She hides from her family for over thirty thousand years.  She hides from an overly ambitious reporter determined to discover her life history.  She hides from the man who loves her.  Can she let go of the past without losing herself?

Vagabonds on the run

What do you do when law enforcement and the mob are chasing you?

Vanish as completely as possible, of course.  Something that a couple hundred million dollars make a lot easier, especially when the money comes with a double-decker RV with an exterior like a dumpster and an interior like Versailles.

Tiffany and Thomas love the nomadic life–luckily, because when they aren’t finding trouble, it invariably finds them.
