… in my LORE! But the focus isn’t on dragon riders or dragon nay-sayers; instead, it’s partly a concept and partly to do with parallel realms. Find out for yourself!
What does a Bluebell have to do with a labyrinth? This is Lore of Reaume in microcosm: from mythical Dragons in The Kallanon Scales to the Temple of Stars in The Nemisisn Star, and from bluebells in a strange place in The Sleeper Sword to Mazes of the mind, heart and reality in The Dreamer Stones, the pace is swift and takes you to the oddest spaces.
Yup, I like all things dragon! The Lore Series, though, doesn’t inundate you with these great and beautiful beasts, but there are dragons and they play a large role in THE KALLANON SCALES.
This little guy below is a baby dragon in every way except for wings. Meet the Giant Girdled Lizard, native to South Africa. The scientific name is Smaug giganteus (and don’t you just LOVE that!).
While I do not agree with keeping animals in captivity, I’d love to have this little guy around 🙂

The short story about the history of the Dragon species is now available!
In another realm, scaled beings of might and majesty go to war. They are dragons and a Dragon is as nothing if he is not king of his domain.
This short story tells more about the great reptiles which appear in the LORE series.
A friend sent this, knowing how much I love dragons, and now I’m sharing it, because, hey, this says it’s possible. Yay!!
A glorious new cover and an internal edit also – viola! the all new The Kallanon Scales!
An ancient map points the way
An ancient map, a strange prophecy, and anyone who dares speak of it, dies.
A new enemy enters the Valla arena, but this one is as old as time and seeks a forbidden place. An ancient map points the way. Sorcery and technology work together to contain a creature created of time and fire.
The terrible secret of the source of Valla power is uncovered and, as friends and family are murdered, Torrullin reveals the truth about the Valla Dragon, a secret about greed from the era of Nemisin. Hurting after Saska abandons him, Torrullin hurtles into battle when his twin sons are kidnapped, and takes with him into danger a pilot, a navigator and an innocent girl – they are the Dalrish seeking escape from Xen III.
Another truth rears up, the tale of the Nine who fled into the Forbidden Zone with a strange taliesman in the shape of a dragon.
“There are dragons in my future,” Torrullin once tells Quilla of the Q’lin’la … and that future is now.
Quilla knows who the fire creatures are; the Q’lin’la fled them in ancient time. They are the Kallanon, the Glittering Darkness.
War erupts on a world no more than a circle on an ancient map, a world hidden in the time of the Nine. There Torrullin discovers who his sons really are, Taranis confronts his inner demons, Bartholamu of the Siric faces his arch-nemesis, Q’lin’la and Kallanon are thrown into the same melting pot, an ancient emperor speaks again, the new Lady of Life is born, the Dalrish have a profound effect on Torrullin, and Vannis seeks revenge.
The Kallanon Scales is an epic journey into the realms of time and legend, and forever alters the future.
Redemption will come in a form unknown to us and it will be a living sentient thing. And in its maleness will reside a tempest; The One, who shall have power to lead light over dark to overcome it eternal. Beware the passion of such beauty. We shall leave our haven in search of this sentient to bask in the light. Shall we return with it or shall the Dark Dragons follow to annihilate its glow?
Prophecy of Dragonne Queen Riana, 23rd of the title
Time’s timekeeper never sleeps
forever telling the tale
of twin war gods
come to their father
seeking magic to eliminate
the monsters of worlds
and in the telling
remind of a taliesman
fashioned in purest gold
a cavorting little dragon
a key, a truth
a legend, a king
the Mysor of old
dragons once, hidden now
hold in their palms
a glorious green sword
a beautiful blue sword
the magic that will
slay the old monsters
remember eternally an anniversary
a coming of age
number five and twenty
time’s timekeeper is awake.
