Like most boys, my youngest son developed a fascination for dinosaurs. He could name many species before he could read. At some point, I knew I would have to have dinosaurs in The Empyrical Tales. Afterall, I couldn't write a story only for my girls. I had to include things for my boys too!
With only a few days left in the giveaway on my blog, I thought I would share some background on the dinosaurs ofThe Secret Queen.
So (sing a slightly altered tune with me), these are the…Continue

This is the first of my novels to have a foreword and who better since the third book of The Empyrical Tales has dinosaurs in it.
I contacted Mr. Blasing a while back with the aim of him verifying some of my dinosaur facts. When I go into classrooms, I tell the students that a huge part of writing fiction is doing…Continue
