About the Author

On my mother's side of the family, I come from a line of storytellers. My grandmother's stories ranged from my grandfather's arrest for draft resistance in England during World War I, the uncertainty of life during the Troubles in Ireland, to the day she decided to leave her marriage (but didn't). My mother's stories described a rural childhood that to a child of a suburb of little boxes seemed idyllic. Both of them encouraged me to read and provided me with books to feed a growing habit. When I was seven or eight, I discovered mythology, and the gods and goddesses in those tales were as real to me as the dragons and cats in my own stories are now. Thanks to my early training in fantasy, I like to hang out with dragons. Accepting the bizarre directions my imagination takes has allowed me to conjure up Zen cats, cougars, gossip-vending hawks, and other critters. Currently I live in upstate New York on a wooded piece of land not unlike some of the terrain in Big Dragons Don't Cry. Since 2000 I've belonged to the online writers' group, Artistic License, subtitled Shameless Blameless Hussies. They've read all my books, but don't blame them if you find errors, because they're shameless. I also paint, and the art on my book cover is one of my watercolors.

The Dragon Who Wouldn't Fly by C. M. Barrett is an enchanting original fantasy suitable for adult and YA readers. I loved the quest, the idea that emotions are as important as logic, and that an individual only has to listen to hear nature and feel love's presence. There are three major characters: Druid the dragon who must overcome his feelings of abandonment and find his destiny; Tara the kitten who is on a quest to save the world, and a young woman who must accept her psychic abilities so she can help Tara and Druid. Full of positive themes, the book is uplifting. But, the story is not all rosy and reflects mankind's destructive nature towards the environment. At least in this book, it is not too late to change the growing destruction. This is the first book in the "Dragon's Guide to Destiny" series. To date, there are four more books in the series. I hope they are all as entertaining, well-written, and intriguing as the first book,

interesting - not for hard core sci-fi readers. uplifting - food for thought
