  • Sulfur Scent, Dragons


    Sulfur Scent, Dragons

    I go to the fireworks every summer with a good friend of mine; it's our thing. Last year, Brewerton. The summer before, we sat on the bridge in Baldwinsville.

    I wrote a young adult fantasy novel a few years ago, being re-released as “Totems” this spring. The protagonist is a dragon. Dragons are just very dear to my heart. Not as scary monsters but dragons as something special and something good.

    I just want to believe in magic.

    I remember looking up at the fireworks last summer. And I was thinking of my character Gabrielle; the fireworks were coming from her. Then one exploded in the form of a jellyfish.
