Dragons have been in my head since childhood but I had only written about them in poems. All the stories I've read have Dragons as servants to humans, wearing harnesses to control them and so on.

What are the stories about?
I hope the books might appeal as tales of adventure, of good versus evil, with Dragons who choose to help a small group of humans.

The books I most enjoy reading are ones that don't give all the answers so I can spend time imagining what might have happened next.
