Dragon protecting

Debi EvansGreetings, my name is Debi Evans and I am co-author of The Secret Society of Dragon Protectors series of books for children. I wrote these with John MacPherson, who also drew the pictures and designed the covers. There are  5 books in the series. Target age range is 7-12 years and the books appeal to teenage and adult fans too. We self published these books and have sold in excess of 70,000 copies worldwide mainly through school visits.

The idea behind the series is that dragons are real, still alive and hiding! They are doing something called The Great Hibernation to preserve themselves. Dragons use their special powers to hide as they were fed up by being hunged by people in the past, who were either afraid of them, or wanted to steal their treasure. If you know anything about dragons already you will know that they are attracted to bright shiny objects and love to hoard treasure. Wherever you find a dragon you WILL find treasure. What you may NOT know is that when baby dragons are born their mothers show them to roll on the floor of the cave so the precious jewels stick to their tummy. This has a dual purpose; it keeps their treasure safe, and it also gives them protection for their weakspot on their underside.

The most precious jewel of all to a dragon is its heartstone, called Dragonore. This is a blue crystal found deep in the caves of Krubera in Georgia, Eastern Europe. It is because of Dragonore that dragons have realised they can become invisible and hide in anything at all which is dragon shaped or dragon themed, whether it is something as large as a statue (i.e. the ones on London Bridge) or something as small as a coin (some british pound coins have a dragon on one side). It can be something two dimensional such as the Welsh flag. Dragons are going to stay hidden until such a time as they feel it safe to walk about freely on earth again…and that time is coming. The Secret Society of Dragon Protectors was formed to keep an eye on hidden dragons and monitor their awakening.

      …it comes free with a dragon book….but you have to look after it! Dragonore inspires creative writing as well as hopefully leading you to hidden dragons!

      Hi Ffion, great to hear from you. I really enjoyed my visit to Micklands Primary School today. The website is http://www.thesecretsocietyofdragonprotectors.co.uk and you are more likely to see dragons if you believe in them – it helps if you have Dragonore and remember to use your imagination too!
