It is an exciting day at our house. My youngest grandson has turned 2 today. After his struggle in the NICU we are super excited for such a thing. He is constantly learning and growing at such a rate that blows our minds.
I can still recall the day he was born perfectly well. My daughter had already been up to the hospital once with labor a few days prior. They released her saying it was dehydration and to drink more water. That morning two years ago she was complaining of pain once more.
The hubby man was working from home on that particular day because it fell on Memorial Day that year. He told my daughter that she could not go into labor and have the baby as it was time and a half for his work.
A few hours later her pain was getting worse, so she called her other set of parents and they came to take her back to the doctor for a checkup. After much contemplation of releasing her again with dehydration, something changed in the matter of an hour. There wasn’t even enough time for us to get up to the hospital and it was five minutes away.
I’m eternally grateful that my ex-husband and his wife was there with her. They were there for the birth of our second grandson, Jemmik.
I’m sure by this point you are trying to figure out how does this pertain to the release of novel two in the Treaty of Dragons series. That is easy.
Poisonous Revenge is dedicated to my grandsons that remind me to have fun in life and enjoy the magic that comes with it.
Some of the things that I address in the novel is how it is easy to create groups when we are in the safety of things like our schools, but when confronted by the real world, often times these groups collapse under the pressures of life outside of it.
This was an important thing for me to write about as my youngest daughter will be facing this next year as she transitions from high school years to college as well. We have sat down to talk many times about some of the changes she will face when school ends like she will be able to keep her friends, but it won’t be as easy. They will all have to put effort into staying in contact.
I believe that is only one of the important things that have somehow subconscious woven itself into my writing.
So, with great pride. Let me introduce you to the next leg of The Opseti Guard’s journey.

Deciding to tackle the hardest dragon clutch according to rumor, Alneck leads The Opseti Guard to his home city, Camier. Upon arrival not only are they met with destruction and decay, but a band of assassins has taken over. They threaten the few remaining occupants of Camier and hunt the local dragons. It is up to Alneck and the other members of The Opseti Guard to not only free the townsfolk of Camier from the assassins but to save the black dragon clutch from being hunted. Through twists, turns, and failed attempts The Opseti Guard are tested as a team. The question is when all hope seems lost can they bond as a team and learn to work together? Or will Alneck’s past drive them apart when it comes calling?

Loud noises boomed outside the tavern. Every conversation inside stopped immediately as heads turned slowly toward the door. The tension in the room increased until it was almost choking in the small space. Everyone sat painfully still, their bodies facing the door. The noises grew louder and there seemed to be a bit of chanting that broke through the original roar. Cheers rang up and it started to sound more like a celebration.
“Nobody goes toward the windows,” the bartender commanded. It was clear he expected no arguments.
Alneck slid from his stool, ignoring the bartender. He eased one of the shutters away from the wall and peered out into the darkened streets. One side revealed nothing other than the empty path they’d traveled earlier. The noises came from the other side.
Lights flickered and beamed from torches. Large dark shadows danced around with smaller versions. Long sticks were shoved into the ground, surrounding something massive. It wasn’t until they drew closer to the object in the center that it was illuminated. There in the center of the ring was the decapitated head of a black dragon. The horror still evident in the open eyes of the creature. Alneck would have jumped back, but right then, the bartender joined them at the window and looked out.
“I warned you not to look,” the bartender whispered. He let out a deep rumbling sigh that ruffled Alneck’s hair. “Close the window before they notice that we are open. They are in celebration mode out there and will be looking for drinks afterward.” He pulled the group of three further inside the room, so the shutter slid closed and blocked out all light once more.
“What is going on out there? That was terrible.” Alneck turned to look at the bartender as they walked back toward the table.
“Nothing. It isn’t any of our business. Look, if we go poking our noses in what they are doing, then we draw their attention here, and they no longer forget we exist.” The bartender looked around. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed at all, but we can’t exactly afford to draw their attention to the last remaining few of us.” He headed back for the bar, no longer willing to discuss matters.
Meet Misty Harvey
Misty Harvey loves writing
spine-tingling horror or dark fantasy novels sure to thrill readers. The
psychology behind such tales has always been a fascination for her since she
was younger. Even to the point that she once contemplated taking up psychology
as a profession. Still, her love resides in the art of storytelling. An art she
wishes to continue to share with readers for the rest of her days.
After climbing out of her writing cave and searching the house for the sound of the latest creak or pop, Misty can be found doing one of many things. Often, she spends the remainder of her day with her amazingly supportive husband and youngest daughter. While she has two older children that are out there spreading their wings around the world, including giving her a few grandchildren.
Her favorite things to do when not writing are crafts, wrestling with her dog, avoiding her cat’s bite or generally making her husband and daughter crazy. Often, she can be found creating vivid tales with her daughter about whatever mundane thing happened in their day and turning it into a crazy story. She is also an avid gamer, crochet goddess (we shall pretend there), domestic queen, and animal tamer (it’s a work in progress).
