About Patricia Hamill

I like reading and writing books, crocheting, running, and practicing karate.

I'm also into science (fact and fiction) and love movies and stories that feature it. Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek (still playing on BBC America!), The Expanse, The Walking Dead, I love to watch all of these, though they're just some of the things I watch.

Check out my blog, I read too much!, and also the blog at Puretextuality.com to which I contribute. My favorite genres in books are sci-fi, fantasy, and humorous nonsense in various forms, but I do branch out.

As for what I write, I can't be pinned down to a single genre. My first book, The Golden Ship, I wrote with and for my mom. My sci-fi trilogy, Shadows of Valor, will always be my favorite because it's exactly the sort of thing I like to read: boy leaves home, discovers superpower, meets girl, saves the day.

To get out of my comfort zone and to cure my tendency to hide in the other room when The Walking Dead came on, I wrote a zombie book, Fearless. It's not nearly as gory as The Walking Dead, but it's got a lot of me in it. I think it's the most emotionally gripping, grown up book I've written so far.

The Freeze, my foray into pure YA-post apocalyptic was a lot of fun to write. There's a bit of danger and romance, but it doesn't get too deep. Just a fun story to tell, and hopefully fun to read as well.

As such an avid reader of fantasy, it actually took me rather long to get around to trying my hand at writing one. I wrote Avalee and the Dragon with the full intent at making it a girl defeats dragon fantasy. It turned into a surprise romance for everyone involved, including me. Anyway, good stuff.

All that being said, I love connecting with readers and other authors. Feel free to send me a note on Goodreads or my Facebook page.

An enjoyable clean fantasy adventure.

A few decades ago a bargain was struck: every 10 years a young girl would be sacrificed to the dragon and in exchange the dragon would leave the village unharmed for 10 years. A good bargain - for everyone except the sacrificed girl and her family.

Avalee is selected but she steals a sword (must admire her pluck as she's clueless as to its use!) and vows to kill the dragon although it may mean her death. Her first valiant attempt is in vain and she's carried off to the dragons lair where she learns a shocking secret. When she gets another opportunity to kill the dragon, will she succeed?

Wholly unexpected magical twist in the tale that I didn't expect- and I'm not referring to the romance.
