Early in life Roger decided to become a teacher and a writer. It took many years, following other paths for a time, but he did eventually fulfill both goals. He is now retired from teaching and writes full time. Roger is of mixed race, half of which is Irish and English, and he also taught students from many backgrounds. This has helped him to have an appreciation for diversity and varying points of view. Life is fascinating, he says, mostly because people make it so. Roger's parents emphasized literature and the arts at an early age, and in his youth he usually did not go anywhere without a fiction paperback in his rear pocket. Then and now, he has been a voracious reader in all genres. No wonder then that he became a teacher and a writer! He believes that years of people-watching and other experiences, deep thought about his characters, and exhaustive research and editing are the keys to writing convincingly. He loves crafting characters by leaning heavily on his own experiences challenging life, taking risks, and making mistakes along the way.

With THE DRAGON"S TOOTH author Roger Crane has crafted a book which can be enjoyed both by young adults and their elders. The story of Danny O'Rourke and his friends takes the reader on an exciting adventure as Danny attempts to solve the mystery surrounding his father's death. The quest to find the origin of the magical dragon's tooth leads Danny to England and Ireland, where he acquires a coterie of charming companions -- and some menacing ones -- and author Crane has included some history and geography as a bonus to the plot. Suspense builds to an exciting climax, and the ending, while satisfying, leaves the reader hungry for Volume II, to learn the further adventures of Danny and his friends. THE DRAGON"S TOOTH is nothing less than a page-turner!

I'm only about half way through the book. I'm looking forward to the sequel. There does seem to be a format problem in the epub version, the font size jumps around in size.
