Do you ever wonder about your ancestors?
I love history and I have always wanted to trace my family tree but I never found the time, until recently. When my daughter told me she was pregnant, just over a year ago it started me thinking about my parents and grandparents and those that came before them.I joined a genealogy site and within a couple of hours I traced my father’s family back to his great grandparents that’s five generations and I can’t wait to find out more.
Legacy and family are important themes in my writing.
‘The Dragon Legacy’, is a fantasy tale, which traces the last survivors of the dragon legacy and their importance to the survival of the human world.
‘The subtle infusion of his ancient memories flowed from his mind. A picture of a mist covered hillside materialized. The scene mesmerized them as it unfolded like a virtual puzzle. A jolt of pure power ran through him as he recalled the eerie shapes of the dragons gathered in a circle around a turquoise, almost translucent, egg. The largest dragon stepped forward and covered the egg with dark earth. The dragon faced them. Somehow aware, they witnessed the ceremony. Lukas identified himself with the dragon lord. Grace and Jasmine must believe the dragon lived within him.’
‘The Dangerous Gift’, my latest book revolves around a legacy a young woman receives after the death of her guardians and the menacing events that follow this gift.
‘The funeral was soul-destroying. Memories of her parents’ deaths and the pain of her loss resurfaced and intensified the grief she felt for her guardians’ passing. When the ranch house came into view on the ride home, its legacy resonated with and comforted her. Memories of happier times gave her hope for the future as she unclasped her hands and relaxed back against the limousine’s upholstered seat. Jared reached for her hand, as if he sensed her disquiet.’
I will be posting my findings from time to time on my blog. Who knows if I find some interesting characters, I may even include them in a story.
