QSFer Ash Roberts has a new LGBTQ+ childrens’ fantasy book out, Dragoneers Book 1: Royal Dragon.
A banished princess, an unwanted dragon, and a bond that just might save them all.
Fifteen-year-old Kalia has her life all mapped out. Heir to the elven homeland, promised to a Duke’s son, and the war against her people nowhere near the castle, she thinks herself safe from any and all harm.
But then she accidentally bonds with her greatest fear, a dragon.
No longer a princess and stuck with a blue dragon, she reluctantly joins the dragon riders. But the fearless Dragoneers won’t have anything to do with nobility, former or not.
Stuck between two worlds, Kalia must learn to depend on herself. And to survive, she must learn to trust that which she fears most. If you couldn’t get enough of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragon Riders of Pern, you will love the thrilling ride that is Royal Dragon. Get your copy now.
Ash Roberts is a transgender author who writes books about dragons, and those who ride them. She has loved dragons ever since a family friend lent a precocious fourteen year-old her copy of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonflight. She was hooked.
She credits Rick Riordan with saving her life because of a trans character he wrote. To pay it forward, she now rights books with plenty of LGBTQIA+ characters so that queer kids can see themselves in stories and not feel so alone.
When not writing, she spends her time in Northern Colorado with her wife and their family, including 2 3/4 cats.
