My current work-in-progress is Songflight, the story of the daughter of a dragon-slayer chief whose empathic powers uncontrollably connect to dragons. Her connection to the enemy and vocal stammer have marked her as unfit to lead the clan, and with her purpose in life seemingly taken from her she feels alone and useless. But when her growing powers reveal the dragons’ capacity for good, she sets out with a new purpose: ending the war tearing the races, and the world, apart.
