mysterious dark power for a truly evil purpose—reanimating the
long-deceased legendary dragonrider, Beckah Derrick, and her
monstrous king drake. But Argonox’s cruelty won’t end there, and
Reigh fears the worst is yet to come. Rescue is unlikely as the

Do you have a
specific writing style? I
enjoy writing from the first person perspective the most. It makes me
feel much more connected to the characters and their experiences,
almost like I’m exploring the world along with them. I like to
choose a narrator who is relatable and likable, someone who can make
us laugh and build a bond throughout the story. I’ve tried to write
as the broody antiheroes in the past, and while I LOVE having those
characters in my stories, it’s harder for me to channel that kind
I tend to write from the perspective of male characters. I’m not
sure why, but I’ve always gravitated to those kinds of narrators
like Percy Jackson and Harry Dresden. I love feeling like I’m
listening to an old friend tell me a story, and I adore a good

on someone you know, or events in your own life? Absolutely!
My husband is a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force, and I
drew a lot from his personal journey through training, learning to
fly, and then conducting a successful career. He actually was a huge
help in developing a lot of the fine details in the story – like
the dragonrider armor, saddles, and how they would train and be used
in combat. I wanted to give as realistic a feel to this world as
possible, so I constantly asked myself (and my husband) “If
dragonriders were real, how would they do this?” My hope was that
by making this feel as real as possible, it would help my readers
become more invested in the world and the events. If it felt real,
then they would fall in love with it just like I had.
Do you see writing as
do—and I feel SO extremely blessed about that! It’s been a lot of
work, and I got off to sort of an unconventional start, but now I’m
so happy to be doing what I love for a living. It’s been an
incredible journey so far and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

anything from writing your book and what was it?
book in particular taught me a lot about endings. This is the last
book in the Dragonrider Legacy series, and while there is one more
dragonrider series coming next, this series marks the ending of the
journey for many of the characters that I’ve been writing with
since my career began. It’s been tough to say goodbye. And it’s
been nostalgic to see them grow and change over the years, just like
my writing has. But I’ve learned that every book and every series I
write are opportunities for growth—to make myself better, to make
my characters impact others, and to invite someone new to fall in
love with reading.
