For fun: Who are you in the Greater Realm?

In my The Last Dragon Charmer books, the characters fight with swords, magic, and teeth. Some are honorable, some fierce, some loyal and good. See where you would fit into their world by taking the quiz.

Are you a mighty Elderdragon or a honorable Elite Paladin. Do you fight with sorcery, magical items, or with your wits. Maybe you’re an enchanter or spellcaster. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re a noble and magnificent horse.

Charlotte with Friends

Last week I visited two great schools in Charlotte, NC – Idlewild Elementary and Charlotte Secondary School – thanks to Park Road Books and with two wonderful authors: David Fulk (RAISING RUFUS) and Miriam Spitzer Franklin (EXTRAORDINARY). Click the links to check out the bookstore and the wonderful books. (Also, visit Park Road Books for signed copies of our books.)

Pics to come. Probably. Until then, here is a gif of some creepy-ish but happy bear-like pokemon?
