Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?
A. I wrote ‘’Dragons in the Clouds’’ 20 years ago. I first wrote it as a screenplay and my original thought was to develop ‘’Puff the magic dragon’’. I always did love that song as I am sure you did. And I thought it would make a great story. I just recently reformatted it to the novel format
Q3. How did you come up with the titles of your books?
