***From the Author
The jewel you see glowing in the ring in my authors photo isn't really a jewel at all. It is the crystallized tear of a real dragon. In my novel "The Royal Dragoneers" you might find the moment where that wonderful magic teardrop fell from a green dragon's eye, and captured all sorts of power in its facets.

My grandfather died before I was born, but the ring was given to me by my mother, after my grandmother recently died. My grandfather had won it in a poker game near the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma sometime in the early 1900's.

It has been a boon, the magic of the dragon's tear ring, for it brought you here to me didn't it? Now treat yourself to something fantastic and try out the free sample of one of my novels. I hope you enjoy the journey. It will be spectacular.
Thank you, M.R. Mathias
