The Roxbury Showcase: April 2017

Trailblazers

Indie authors are, in many ways, trailblazers. Like the pioneers of old who walked across the country, staking claim, building, failing, succeeding, and finding fulfillment, indie authors are able to do just that.

Recently, indie author Emily Martha Sorensen sent a very insightful newsletter. She is definitely a trailblazer. An author told her that you can pretty much write about anything in  YA these days, except being parents. Yet, she does exactly that. Emily’s book are about the parents of magical children–a dragon actually.

The first book of hers I read was a holiday story, Dragon’s First Christmas.

Rose didn’t count on becoming a mother to a brand new baby dragon egg.

She’s always wanted to be a paleontologist, and is now in college studying to become one. But a chance meeting at the American Musuem of Natural History turns her world upside down. Because, millions of years after dragons have gone extinct, there’s an egg that seems to be unexpectedly . . . alive.

The egg knows what he wants. He wants Rose and a stranger, Henry, to be his new parents. But can three strangers of two different species become a family?
