Author Bio

  Adrienne Woods was born and raised in South Africa, where she still lives with her husband and two beautiful little girls. She always knew she was going to be a writer, but it only started to really happen about four years ago. In her free time―if she gets any because moms don’t really have free time―she loves to spend it with friends, whether it’s a girls night out, or just watching a movie. She’s a very chilled person. Her writing career started with Firebolt, book one in the Dragonian series. There will be four books in total, including a further two to three books, which will be stories that take place within the Dragonian series. Her other series, Dream Casters, will be released mid 2015. She also writes in different genres, and her woman’s fiction, The Pregnancy Diaries, will be published under a pseudonym. And then, she has a paranormal series by the name of the Aswang series, which will consist of about ten novels. And if that wasn’t enough, there is another series, Guardians of Monsters, which will be released in 2016.

Dragon’s Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year-old Elena Watkins was no different.

Until the night a fairy talke killed her father.

Now Elena is in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh and the only way Elena is going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her won.

Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe in ….herself. 


Meet Samantha Leaf. (Sammy)

I got a bit uneasy because I’m meeting for the first time a dragon. She’s female and I have no idea what to expect. There is a soft knock on the door. I take a huge breath and walk to open the door. What I found was not what I expected.
In front of me sits a beautiful red head, well it’s hard to explain. Her hair colour is brassy and she has the most beautiful hazel brown eyes, and deep dimples whenever she smiles.
Me: Sorry that I’m staring. Those eyes?
SL: (She started to laugh, like a hyena. It’s so contagious and I laughed with) I get that a lot. It’s a dragon thing.
Me: (I took another deep breath) So Sammy it is? Tell us a bit about yourself?
SL: How much time do you have? Just kidding. I’m from Tith, lives in one of the Dragon city’s called Borac. All the houses there are gigantic, cause it’s a dragon city. We love our true form so whenever home we can be free. I’m the sister of the Rubicon. Although he is one of the feisty dragons, I’m a Fire-tail. One of the Metallics. My brother is all the dragons in one. Where he is a complete pain in my parents butt sides, I’m their dream child. I give them no problems what so ever.
Me: (I started to smile as she just babbled on.)
SL: I go to Dragonia Academy, I don’t have a rider yet, but then again we are not like the Chromatics (meaning bad dragons) that you need to fight in the Coliseum until they surrender. No, we Metallics choose.
Me: So you are a Metallic and your brother a what?
SL: (She giggles.) A chromatic. It’s a breed of dragon that lingers a bit more to the dark side. They have all the abilities. You get the Night-Villain which is black. They look like their busy decomposing. My dad is a Night-Villain. They are acid breathers. Then you have the Green-Vapors, who are chlorine breathers. The snow dragon is white, and breathe a chilling frost, but they are so smart, and so scardy cats. Then you get the Moon-bolt, they breath lightning bolts and can see the future the older they get. My best friend Becky claimed a Moon-bolt a couple of months back. She is the bomb. Gave him all his hell. Last is the Sun-blast. They are red and like me, breathes Fire. Evil though, very vile creatures. Very difficult to claim one.
Me: So why aren’t you the same as your brother?
SL: You sound like Elena the first time we tried to explain it to her. I used kittens. When our mother lays an egg, our parents don’t know what they’ll get until we’re hatched. Just like Kittens look different, so are dragons.
Me: Interesting. Tell me a bit about Dragonia Academy?
SL: It’s an awesome school. It’s build on air, don’t ask me how. It just is, stuck in the sky and the view is breath taking. We have Enchantments. Although Spells don’t work on dragons, unless they are something physical, like you turn a tree into a life thing that kills people, we still need to know how to cast them.
ME: My eyes grew bigger. Did the tree killing thing actually happen?
SL: Not the tree creature, but there were once plant eating monsters. They used to devour anything that gets in their way. We also have Art of War. We need to know how to fight in our human form too, because you do get situations where dragons can’t turn into their true form.  Transformations teach us how to deal with scary situations and to not act with it. We are born to reveal our true self whenever danger is near. It’s something we can smell in the air when danger is near. Transformation helps us to stay in our human form. I know it’s sounds dumb but there are situations when you can’t reveal what you are, especially visiting this side. We have a Viden, she’s some sort of fortune teller, and a Moon-Bolt dragon, that can see the future. We are forced to see her once a month.
Me: You said forced, don’t you like the Viden.
SL: Believe me, when you meet her, you wouldn’t like her either. She is so vain and she thinks that we are so stupid and not know whenever she sucks something out of her thumb or makes a true revealing.
Me: (I had to supress my laughter.) There is a different with the two.
SL: She nods. If she makes a prophecy, then her eyes light up and she speaks in so many voices. Her wind blows in all directions and what comes out of her mouth is like a riddle. You have no idea what you have to do. When she gazes in her Crystal ball and roll her eyes over, she’s speaking bs.
Me: I couldn’t stop myself and starts to laugh)
SL: Tell me about it. (Sammy laughs too.)
Me: Well, Sammy. As much as I would love to chat to you more, our time is up. But I will definitely find out more about you in Firebolt. I can’t wait to read it.
SL: Yeah, I guess it’s a cool story. I’m still grounded from that last thing that happened, so you can be glad my mom said it’s fine for me to come and meet you.
Me: In that case, tell your mom I’m truly grateful. I wish you all the best for what to come and hopefully we’ll meet again.
SL: That will be nice.
She shakes my hand awkwardly, like she never done that before, wave goodbye as she almost exits the door and disappeared.
I took another deep breath. Thank heavens she was in her human form.
