This is my second novel, and the first to be unleashed on the public. In 2000 it was available as an e-book on the Internet, and
what an interesting experience that was... (?)
Dragon's Keeper began as a question I asked myself one evening driving home after a session at the local model railroad club. Specifically; why don't railway
locomotive engineers ever get to Save The World? Everyone else has gotten a crack at it, so why not
forgotten railroad engineer?
As it turned out, the railroad engineer doesn't get the Big Chance here either. Sigh. (Sorry, Brotherhood Of Locomotive Engineers. You were this
close!) But a railroad mechanic, a housewife, a railfan and a lawyer? That's where it begins, one cold night in the dying weeks of winter...
What would happen if the bones of a real dragon were discovered today? And who might be searching for them? And if that
dragon were to be resurrected, why should we even be afraid? These are the first footsteps that take us into the world of Dragon's Keeper
and the lives of a group of very ordinary people caught in a dark mystery that began nine hundred years ago. And when these very ordinary people find
themselves on the wrong end of a myth that's not supposed to exist, they have to find extraordinary faith, courage and trust. And fast.
These are people you would recognize every day: Creek Morgan is an Aboriginal single father, struggling to find his identity between his
job as a railroad mechanic, his culture as a Native Indian and his role as a dad to beloved eight-year-old daughter Terry. Judith Mills is a dedicated
scientist who discovered the dragon bones; and George Pakuchek is the polished big-city lawyer who discovers his heart. Shelley Rogers
owns a struggling re
her best friend Eva Reed is a housewife whose cherished husband needs a miracle, and Neil Dayton is a young man
whose entire life revolves around taking pictures of trains.
The story pits these very ordinary people against a frightening evil that has been waiting for its moment a long, long time - and they have
no weapons, no time and no chances to make a mistake. Something terrible has opened its eyes, and before the night is over the Dragon's Keeper
will have returned, and the end of everything is as close as nightfall...
