Tarragon, Key Keeper


For hundreds of years, the gates of Tarragon have been sealed from the outside. Prophecy speaks of the day the last Key Keeper will return and wake the dragons from their spell-cast slumber, returning them to their rightful home.
Seeking to fulfill her father’s dying wish, Anwen Porter travels to the Drakonii Mountains where she meets Tyler, a mysterious local with a secret. With his help, she learns more about her clouded past and her own abilities. But when Courtney, a lovesick mage, tries to insert herself into their plans, things begin to go horribly wrong.
With death threatening at every turn, Anwen must learn to rely on her newfound friends to survive. But how can she unravel the mystery of her heritage when everything is trying to kill her?

  1. Given unlimited resources, what would be your ideal writing environment?

Hmm… My idea writing environment would probably be a nice library-esque room with natural, earthen colors, a fireplace with actual fire, lots of comfy couches, a snack cabinet and fridge, and a place for my desktop (since I prefer to write on that over my laptop.) And access to an unending supply of mechanical pencils, lead for said pencils, and notebooks (college ruled).

  1. Where do you actually write?

I actually write at work during the kids’ nap time (preschool), using a notebook and mechanical pencil. Or, at home on my desktop computer, which is situated in the corner of what should be the dining room but is more like my “whatever I need it to be” space.

  1. How long does it normally take you to write a novel?

That’s a good question. Hmm.. well, when I first started writing, it took at least three months to get the whole rough draft down. Now… it depends on how willing my characters are to talk to me. I’d say between two to three months for a rough draft?

  1. What are your inspirations?

I take inspiration from other writers, such as Tolkien, Rowling, and similar. I also look to nature, human nature, and what I observe from others. I usually get the great ideas from my dreams, so those are a good source too.
