My pal Donita Paul's Dragon series

Hi, everybody! 

I am so happy today to tell you about my friend Donita and her latest book, DragonLight.  

Donita has carved out a unique place in the market with her dragon tales, and kids LOVE these books.  Every time I teach at a writers' conference where teens are, they're all busy writing fantasy--tales of kingdoms and strange creatures where anything can happen.  And yes, I noticed this even before Harry Potter!  In any case, Donita's fantasy stories have a Christian element, and I can promise that your children (and grandchildren, if you have them) will love these charming stories.  

Donita is an excellent writer with a heart for teens and for God. You can order her books here.  Here's a blurb: 

DragonLight by Donita K. Paul WaterBrook Press, June, 2008 

The fifth book in the Dragon Keeper Chronicles, concluding the drama that has been building since DragonSpell was released in 2004.

Donita K. Paul weaves eternal truths into a page-turning story and still takes time to tickle her reader with humorous characters and situations.

 As Kale and her father are busy hatching, bonding, and releasing the younger generation of dragons as helpers throughout the kingdom, the light wizard has little time to develop her skills. Her husband, Sir Bardon-despite physical limitations resulting from his bout with stakes disease-has become a leader, serving on the governing board under Paladin.

When Kale and Bardon set aside their daily responsibilities to join meech dragons Regidor and Gilda on a quest to find a hidden meech colony, they encounter sinister forces. Their world is under attack by a secret enemy. Can they overcome the ominous peril they can't even see?

I met Donita at dinner one night at the CCWC. What a delight! She is an incredible woman and will teach any aspiring writer about perserverance!

Angela I came away from the SCWC refreshed, renewed, equipped and ready for my keyboard! :)
Thank you for being so transparent, sharing your testimony and your experiences of letting God open the doors for you regarding your writing and books. I loved the story about your first portfolio! Thank you for the song!
Who knew???!! You are a gal of many talents for sure.
Where can one find the "skeleton" on your website. I was one of the unlucky ones that was not able to attend your workshop when you spoke of the skeleton example.
Blessings to you and your dear family, Susan
