It's the Year of the Dragon -- Misha Herwin
Welcome to the year of the Dragon.
hoping that for all of us it will be a happy and productive one.
don’t know why but dragons have always held a fascination for me. One of the
first stories I ever made up was about a dragon called Roostance who lived
under my bed. Roostance was fat and did
all sorts of things he shouldn’t while his sister, or was she his friend, who
lived under my sister’s bed, was a much better behaved creature. Anuk listened to these stories when we were both supposed to be asleep and much later she drew

of course there are the Dragonfire books. The first ones I self-published and in
which all the leading characters are based on members of my family−with their
permission of course. I’m very fond of these and am considering republishing
them in the near future.
from the literary dragons in my life, there’s a dragon in my garden asleep by
the pond, another proudly displaying its strength in the dining room and a set
of smaller ones on my desk.
So far the start of this calendar year has not been too brilliant for me. Fingers crossed that dragons will work their magic and things will improve forthwith.
