Just Sold DRAGON ROAR!!! My First PB!

Discussion started on

I couldn't find a dragon icon!

Happy to announce I just signed the contract for DRAGON ROAR, my PB about a lonely dragon who loses his roar and the brave young girl who helps him find it again.  Pub date TBD but either 2019-2020. My first book contract and hopefully not my last!
