Goodreads asked Maria E. Schneider:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Maria E. Schneider When I saw the baby dragon flitting about my garden above the zucchini, well, I knew that little guy had a story to share. I was grateful he showed up because he ate at least four vine borer moths while I watched! I made sure he had plenty of water, and quietly instructed the garden gnome to keep an eye on him. Junior the cat offered to help too, but I was worried Junior thought he might be a chicken--and therefor a snack! I needn't have worried. That little dragon was old enough to blow some hot, smelly smoke! Junior decided to behave, and for now, all is well. Meanwhile, the story, "DragonKin" is in the works!
