The jewel you see glowing in the ring in my author photo isn't really a jewel at all. It is the crystallized tear of a real dragon. In my novel "The Royal Dragoneers" you might find the moment where this wonderfully magical tear drop fell from a green dragon's eye. It hardened on its way down to land in a mess of troll corpses that the dragon was laying on.
My grandfather died before I was born, but the ring was given to me by my mother after my grandmother recently died. My grandfather had apparently won the ring in a poker game near the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma sometime in the early 1900's.
It has been a boon to me, the magic of the teardrop, for it brought you here didn't it? Now treat yourself to something fantastic and try out the free sample of one of my novels. I hope you enjoy the journey. It will be spectacular. Thanks M.R. Mathias

I quite enjoyed this short and only wish it was longer!
The relationship between girl and dragon was cute and I would love to know more about the tears.
I look forward to reading more from this author.

I came to this tale after reading the first two novels in "The Wardstone" trilogy so felt right at home with this style of story telling and Dragon lore. I'm gonna have to read "The Tricky Wizard" to see where the two companions go next because everything is in place for a fun series of stories.

“...the world is but a playground for a girl with a dragon.”
Crimzon and Clover is a satisfying fantasy to enjoy. M.R. Mathias brings a classic feel of magic to this short story of a young dragon out of luck and a girl with some to share that will leave you wanting to follow them to where the skies take them next.
