FREE on Amazon! DRAGON ACADEMY #fantasy for all ages #dragons

My alter ego also scribbles—lighter fare, with horses of course, and a few recalcitrant dragons that test their young charges’ skill and their families’ patience.

DRAGON ACADEMY seems to appeal to both adults and younger readers, from middle grade through late teens. It’s high on action-adventure, family-friendly humor, and a fair amount of peril… along with coming-of-age and a budding romance.

For two days only (11/28-29/2016) it’s FREE to download HERE.

Training teenage dragons with ‘tude stretch Nick’s skills to the limit.

With high school finished for the summer, Nick looks forward to visiting his aunt and uncle in New Jersey. What awaits him is a heat wave like no other—and the last two Greywing dragons on the planet. Nick has an innate ability to train horses but will he be able to translate his amazing skill to these teenage dragons?

The steaming soup of mid-summer heats up tempers and tests resolve as Nick vies with fellow trainers, Keith and Maxie, for mastery over their new charges. The dragons, Nikita and Michael, typical teenagers themselves, have other ideas.

Nick treads a torturous path through a minefield of competing demands: the expectations of his aunt and uncle, recalcitrant horses, the Academy’s female students and the overwhelming egos of Nikita and Michael. One small mistake erupts into a conflagration that hurls everyone into a race against time and the overwhelming forces of nature.

Reviewer says:

“…like a classic action yarn, Dragon Academy isn’t just for teens; it will appeal just as much to adult readers.  Diane has developed a lively cast of characters that are quirky, entertaining, and downright laughable.”~~Mark Marker
