Meet Dragon Fire!


Trained by the best to be the best, can her exceptional skills and extraordinary powers save her from an ancient war?

Talia Sarri knew nothing about her maternal grandfather until the state sent her to live with him in the wake of her father’s tragic death. But unraveling the mysteries of her lineage only leads to more shock when she discovers that she’s not just a mage. She’s also half-black dragon, her new guardian is the head of a secret organization that is preparing for the coming dragon war.

Paired with her grandfather’s most trusted team leader, Talia must learn how to fight and embrace powers she never knew she had. However, Talia has just as much to learn about distraction and focus with a mentor as intriguing as Raven Paules.

Leaning into her strengths comes at a cost, as great power also comes with chaos. With the pending war on the horizon, can she learn to control the chaos, or will she lose herself before her very first battle?

YABC:  What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

Aleah: I don’t think it was one specific thing that inspired the creation of Draignis Clans other than I LOVE dragons and magic. My inspiration comes at me at the oddest times and usually when I’m on deadline with another book.

YABC: Who is your favorite character in the book?

Aleah: I love the whole team. I don’t think I can pick a favorite. If I had to pick it would be Talia for her mental and physical strengths.

YABC: Which came first, the title or the novel?

Aleah: The novel concept. I didn’t settle on a title until after the outline was completed.

YABC:  Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?

Aleah: I’ve learned to outline and plot. When I started writing I was a pantser, which means I just sat down and wrote, no real plan other than what my fingers typed. Now I can’t start writing until I have the world built out and a fully detailed outline.

YABC: What do you like most about the cover of the book?

Aleah: Everything. It’s so pretty! I love how the artist captured Talia’s edginess and the fire dragon.

YABC:   What’s up next for you?

Aleah: I’m currently working on the second book in the Draignis Clans, Shadow Dragon. I’m hoping to have that one release in August.

YABC:      What would you say is your superpower?

Aleah:  Creativity and empathy

YABC:   What advice do you have for new writers? 

Aleah: I’ll pass on something that I heard and read from other authors when I started – Write what you love and write every day. And never give up on your dreams.
