Overview

Eric Long's dad is a champion surfer. His mom is an artist, obsessed with Chinese dragons. On his 15th birthday, both of his parents' interests collide and change everything he knows about the world.

When he goes on a surfing vacation with his father up near Santa Cruz, California, Eric begins having visions of a woman from Imperial China who had the ability to control a dragon and the emperor who wanted to exploit her talent to fight a war. One foggy morning, Eric and a new surfing friend sneak down to see the off-limits Dragon's Bluff beach near their motel, and he is rescued from drowning by a real-life dragon. This is the dragon of his visions!

Now Eric realizes that those visions are the dragon's memories. But why is he able to see them? Why is the dragon warning him to leave and never come back? Could Eric be a descendant of the dragon tamer? How dangerous will it be if he stays and tries to find the answers?

About the Author

D. G. Driver likes to dip her toes into all kinds of writing genres from children’s fiction and YA fantasy to adult sweet romance. Dragon Surf is her sixth young adult novel published with Fire and Ice YA Books. With a degree in Theatre Arts from U.C. Irvine, it’s not surprising that in addition to writing, Driver is also a theater actress and director. She can often be found singing in a musical theater production somewhere in the Nashville vicinity or at least belting out showtunes in her car.

Jeni Bautista Richard was born in Makati, Philippines and immigrated to Canada with her parents when she was an infant. She studied psychology, sociology, and anthropology at York University in Toronto and graduated with an English degree. A closer look at genealogy indicated ethnic ties to China, The Philippines, and the Pacific Islands. Being born in one country but growing up in another allowed her to become immersed in and identify with the cultures and traditions of both. In the early 2000s, Jeni moved to Nashville, TN. Jeni is a portrait photographer, specializing in capturing families at their most natural and beautiful. She currently works in the public school system in an elementary school that, because of its socio-economical, cultural, and racial diversity, allows her to see the importance of representation. Raising a child of mixed race to be proud of all of the elements that make up his heritage has always been of high importance; that means making sure that minority cultures are accurately represented proudly for all readers.
