Writing Update

A Persian Dragon

Note the feathery rather than leathery wings? I'm so enjoying writing a story set in Iran. Djinn, dragons, sorcerors, jewel thieves and a hydrologist. Love my characters :)


  1. LOL! You had me at hydrologist. ...and djinn.

  2. Gotta love a man who knows his water ;) Although it sounds a bit iffy when I put it that way. There's nothing like living in a dry country to appreciate the magic of water.

  3. Have you read Naomi Novik's Temeraire books? If you like dragons -- and all the different species of them! -- you might like. In case you haven't...they're not exactly fantasies with other wordly beings and such -- they're alternate histories that take place during the Napoleonic Wars. The dragons are the backbone of the French and English fighting forces.

  4. oooh, cool! That photo is so intriguing too! I didn't know that there were different kinds of dragons. Who knew?!

  5. Taryn, Temeraire sounds so good (a friend recommended it ages ago), but I can't get over my war phobia. I struggle to read war stories. It's weird, because I read lots of other blood and guts in fantasy and murder mysteries, but war settings--something in me curls up and whimpers.

    Liz--So many, many dragons. One day I'm going to explore the Chinese dragons. "Tea with the Black Dragon" by R A MacAvoy is a fantastic different take on dragons and humanity.
