Natli VanDerWerken loves dragons. She's got 30 of them that she collected from around the world while she served in the Navy as a meteorologist and anti-submarine warfare specialist.

Natli's first book, Red Dragon’s Keep, grew out of a tale she told to her children and grandchildren one Christmas Eve.

Natli is a website designer, author, quilter, and Navy veteran. She raises and shows Shetland Sheepdogs.

If you like Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, The Fools Quest or Harry Potter, you will like this book.

Red Dragon’s Keep is the first novel in The Dragon’s Children series. Book Two, WindRunner, is due out in November 2018.

Fantasy World Building

How did I build the world around Red Dragon’s Keep? I could tell you that I spent hours writing up a description of Ard An Tir. I could tell you that every detail was created before the writing started. The answer is frankly, it just grew. From everything I’ve read that’s not the way to create a world.

The first line of the book came to me as I woke up one morning. I’d been... Read more of this blog post »
