About The Saint of Carrington
THE SAINT OF CARRINGTON: A Spirited Christmas Story of Hope, Healing, and the Power of Believing
The Saint of Carrington is the story of a man who has lost his way, a town that has lost its faith in Santa Claus, and the young boy who teaches them all to believe again. It is a tale of love, loss, the power of family, and the magic of Christmas.
It is December 1899, a time of great promise and industrial adventure, but ever since William lost his father last year on Christmas day, the festive season holds no enchantment, and the turn of the century holds no excitement.
The small note simply read “Save for Christmas.”
When he stumbles upon his father’s secret hiding place and finds tickets for an ocean voyage to take them clear across the Atlantic to a little town called Carrington, it seems his father is reaching out to him from beyond the grave. The small note attached simply read “Save for Christmas.” But when William sees the date on the handwritten receipt, he realizes this was his father’s last act before dying. That’s when he knew they had to go.
What he didn’t know, was who was waiting for him on the other side.

About The Dragonbond Books
THE DRAGONBOND BOOKS – in progress!
The Dragonbond Books will tell the tale of an infant boy who is dropped at the front door of a 200-year-old library and raised by the head Librarian who lives in a basement apartment below the stacks. On the boy’s 9th birthday, per his parents request (left in a note), she gives him the few items his parents left him, hidden in the bassinet that cradled him; an ancient book of unknown origin, a very old leather & feather quill, a roughspun cloak with an ornate cloak-pin, and a peculiar looking, slightly rounded, speckle-spotted “rock” that, three months later… yep, you guessed it, hatches into a baby dragon. With each new passing day, the boy begins to understand the archaic language of the mysterious book and learns that he is the last remaining descendant of an ancient lineage called The Dragonbond Tribe and can, therefore, speak with and bond with dragons or rather, one particular dragon. And as you know, or may have guessed, everything changes when you have a dragon in your life. All manner of mischief and mayhem ensues.
Author’s Note: I’ve always wanted to write a dragon book! I’ve been waiting a very long time for the right tale to emerge (spiky dragon tail), and finally, it has bubbled up to the surface from the depths of my inner creative well. I am having so much fun writing it, that every morning I wake and can’t wait for the end of the day when I crawl into bed–my room dark but for a single dim light to illuminate my keys– and write for a few hours before falling asleep and dreaming of… you guess it… dragons!
The Dragonbond Books will be launched initially as eBook only by my own shiny new publishing company, Cloud Chaser Books, and will be episodic (one adventure a month is my goal). I may sell the paperback rights to a larger publishing company later on down the line, but for now, I am looking forward to the control self-publishing affords.
