From the Author:
This book started as a question I had back when I was a kid, but more on that in later.
Somebody asked me what my favorite mythical animal was, and I automatically said it was a griffin. I don’t know why except griffins are awesome.
However, I was always under the impression that griffins were nothing more than a myth, a fantasy. Then I read a research paper when I was a freshman in high school. The paper spoke about the origins of griffins, and why they are so ubiquitous throughout all the various kinds of mythology.
After reading it, and realizing this person thought griffins came from Neandertals looking at dinosaur bones and seeing them as the bones from ancient, dead, mythical creatures, my creative wheels started turning.
That’s when the question popped up, you know, the question I brought up at the beginning:
“What if griffins and dragons were real, and dinosaurs were the myth?”
Well, that’s where this book, and series, came from.
About the Author:

When he’s not writing, or slaying dragons, he lives with his four kids and wife in an armored tank (it may just be an RV), traveling the country looking for foes to slay, damsels to rescue, and ways to keep his youngest child occupied.
