The Dragon Riders of Pearl
Accompanied by only his troublesome step sister, his speechless friend, and a princess from a fallen empire, Rayn struggles to learn what it means to be a man while leading a desperate mission. With power granted by his faith in the powers of the divine, the mysterious secrets known only to the princess, and the emergence of their innate gifts, the four go further than any before them in their quest.
But this new threat is unlike any the world has ever known. Will Rayn and his companions be forced to look for help among those who have shown little more than hatred and distrust of humans for the past four thousand years?
Do they dare talk to the dragons?

About the author
Truth be told; the first reason I wrote this book was, purely and simply, for fun. My publisher said “don’t send me any more books about dragons” and one day I said to myself, “I’m bored, I think I’ll write a book just for fun. Hey, I know what would be fun, a book about dragons!”
Well, the book gained sentience, told me it wasn’t done, and has now escaped. In truth I am proud of it for all it has achieved, my Frankenstein’s monster, my Pygmalion, my robot uprising. I don’t know where this book will end up, but it seems to know, and that is enough for me.
Second, I wrote this book to help my young nephew consider what he was becoming – a young man. I have no sons, yet, but am proud to be a male. I have spent most of my life surrounded by women, conflicting gender ideology, and cloth doilies. I still have so much to learn, so I thought I might put some thoughts down on paper hoping I might learn something from it, and hoping some of what I’ve already learnt might be shared with the next generation. I love you, nephew.
But you asked about me. Well, I am 39, genetically engineered by breeding to be a teacher, in love with my wife Samantha, and committed to my three daughters. I enjoy a deep Christian faith, and am kept busy during work hours with touring science shows and curricula. One day I will be rich enough not to, and then I’ll probably keep doing it – just for fun.
