I’m writing a flash fiction story with a dragon in it. He’s a good dragon and the protagonist will be a dragon rider. I imagine him to be similar to this picture. I’d like to get some ideas on what to call him. Any thoughts for a name?
Thanks to Jordan Bernal, author of The Keepers of Eire, (on amazon) for the inspiration.
Do you listen to music as you write? Read this post by Jordan Bernal, author of The Keepers of Eire, to see whose music inspires her. I don’t usually listen to music when I write, but if I do, it’s by Patrick Von Wiegandt. https://www.patrickvon.com
As I watch the Library of Congress Gershwin Award for Best American Song presented to Billy Joel (one of my all-time favorites) on PBS tonight, I am drawn into the story of each song. Billy Joel definitely is a rebel-he doesn’t sing what is comfortable in public opinion, but he always tells a story.
It’s not surprising that I write while listening to music (Billy Joel, among others tops my playlist). The cadence, the beat, the rhythm of songs filters into my brain and draws me into my story.
I’ve been privileged to attend two concerts with Billy Joel. And while I can’t sing for all the money in California, I don’t sit meekly at Billy’s concerts. You’ll find me dancing in the aisles and singing my heart out.
Congratulations, Billy Joel. This humble fan absolutely loves you, your songs, and your storytelling!

The Keepers of Eire is a dragon fantasy set in present day. Bernal’s book won the 2014 Global EBook Gold Award.She conducted research in Ireland and Scotland for this first in a series novel and soon after it was published, she returned to the British Isles to do research for the second book. The main characters, the dragons, and the dragon riders hold readers’ interest to not only find out what happens to the clan but how the murders will be stopped.
The book is available on Amazon in print or on Kindle. My next post will be an interview with Jordan Bernal.
My story, “The Crumpled Card” has been published in Harlequin’s 2014 Christmas Anthology called, A Kiss Under the Mistletoe. I will have a book reading in Pleasanton Tuesday night.
