Stay attuned, Zell Amals ('dragon friends')...
In the mystical lands of Taelondria, an ancient society of dragons wages war in a race against time. After rediscovering legends that a mysterious firebird of immense wisdom still exists, the dragons must locate and protect the incendiary beast...
Nitrozite, the diabolical ghost dragon, has nearly discovered the phoenix's location. And with the aid of his undead armies, he embarks upon a mission to absorb the fiery creature's powers, and permanently eradicate it!
But the fate of a resourceful, yet inexperienced dragon also hangs in the balance. Forced into a position of unexpected responsibility, Jackralvian must unlock and unleash his own powers and purpose... or he too will face eradication.
Time is running out: and it waits for no being... neither mortal nor DRAGON!

After years of work developing the screenplay (and books 1 & 2), I'm excited to share 'Diamond Dragons' with the general public. Although the work is 'new' to most anyone reading this, it's been an on-going process of hard work, dedication, discipline, and consistency behind the scenes.

In addition to being the author and creator of 'Diamond Dragons' (novels/screenplays), I've also involved a small group of artists along the way. The vocal actors, my composer, and the concept artists aboard the 'Diamond Dragons' SCREENPLAY project (2018-2019) have been wonderful. I feel blessed to have experienced such a wealth of hired talent. We've all strengthened the dramatic impact of 'Diamond Dragons' to match both the heroic and villainous characters in perfect form!
THE FIRST BOOK (one of SIX)
If you're reading this, 'Diamond Dragons', book #1 was digitally released on 06.21.2021 @ 8:31 pm PST. DD Book #2 digitally launched on 06.21.2022 @ 2:13 am PST. For those who are unaware, those days/evenings (depending on where you are on planet Earth) were the 'Summer Solstices'. The solstices are also very relevant to book one and two's events. Actually, there is relevance regarding celestial events in each story, but for now, that is all you need to know. Summer Solstices also mark Father's day fairly closely, and since I happen to be one, it's quite nice to Reflect upon that again and again as the years progress. :) My daughter's artwork is at the back of each book in the 'Diamond Dragons' series, so, purchase it solely for that if you like! :) I'm extremely proud of her amazing growth as a human being.
If you plan to purchase 'Diamond Dragons' (book I, book II, or otherwise), I look forward to hearing from you! E-mail us with any questions, thoughts, reviews or concerns. I'm quite curious as to who will be the first to complete the book, but even more so as to who will recognize some/all of the subtle and hidden metaphorical allegories buried within. Books 3-6 will launch upon each subsequent solstice (digital = summer, print = winter), and each of them will reveal much more about the "lands of Taelondria and Castle Kessoshaero". So much so, it will make your head spin into planetary orbit.
I have developed 'Diamond Dragons' far more extensively than any other project I've ever created, directed, produced, or performed within (my background is in theatre, performance, film, voice-over, and production). It truly is a legendary tale which needs to be told. Some future goals include further development of a video game (a 2D/3D 'side-scroller'), merchandise (T-shirts, jewelry, letter openers, and even LED/sound props), and possibly additional 'pre-visualization' videos. However, all of these will require resources and funding which I do not currently have.
So, please, if you believe in what you've seen and heard thus far, CONSIDER SUPPORTING THIS UNIQUE AND EPIC PROJECT! Your investment of Time and/or money will return to you, twelvefold. I can nearly guarantee it.

Until then... Chi-Yong, Chi-Foi, Vas Res... and EYAYELI-HA!
