Grant,

I love pro-vegan fiction too. As for my thoughts on animal rights, they are complex and evolving. I am a vegan and believe strongly in human compassion toward other animal species. You can see more about how it impacts my writing here:

No, the female dragons are not evil, though the story starts off with a couple who are not so virtuous. The dragon society does have gender equality (unlike the human society) though, so a villain is just as likely to be a female. There are several heroes in the dragon world, many of them female. In fact, Jwala will be on the cover of Book 2: The Fettered Flame, which introduces several additional dragon heroes that I think you will enjoy.

Hope you enjoy The Banished Craft and thanks for the great question.(less)
