The Keepers of Eire

I told you about Jordan Bernal and her not yet published novel back in June. Now this multi-talented woman has published The Keepers of Eire, a fantasy fiction full of dragons and suspense.

The Keepers of Eire

For centuries dragons have protected Ireland, their existence kept secret with the help of earth magic and their human riders. That secret is threatened now that the bodies of four riders have been found at sacred Irish sites.

Haunted by dreams of each murder, Christian Riley, is a man with secrets of his own. As the dreams become increasing vivid, he wonders if he is the killer.

When a beautiful American, Devan Fraser, searching for her Irish roots, stumbles into the mystery of the murders while exploring the secrets behind her inherited heirloom dragon ring, sparks aren’t the only things flying.

Devan carries her grandmother’s ring. Christian wears a pendant given him by the mother he never knew. When they learn the jewelry bears the same dragon emblem, they discover the truth of dragons, their destinies, and the depths of honor and loyalty they must sustain to protect the ones they love.

Journey with Christian and Devan as they discover a shared destiny and rush to stop a dragon slayer.

WRITING-SCHOOL-VOLUNTEERISM

After over forty years of investigative experience, I’ve officially changed career paths. While most people my age retire, I’m much too active for that. Besides, I can only watch so much television, and I’m a terrible golfer. I’m devoting my time to writing, school, and volunteerism.

If you didn’t know, I’ve written one novel, A Tale of Robbers and Cops. I enjoyed the project and learned a great deal about writing.

My second novel, Liberty, set in the fictional city of Liberty, Arizona, is a story about people. That’s right; it’s a story about people, not cops. However, among these people are cops, the leaders of a Black Prison/Street Gang, as well as a Latino Street Gang. I’ve been researching for a year. In that time, I’ve met some interesting gang experts who have been more than generous with their time.

In addition to the novels, I’m amassing a collection of short stories. Several are set for publication by year’s end.

My educational goal is to complete an AA Degree in English at Las Positas College and then enter a Master of Fine Arts program. My alma mater, California State University – East Bay has a joint campus program that should meet my needs.

For the last eighteen months, I’ve spent 2 ½ hours most Mondays in Polish Your Writing, a class taught by acclaimed author and educator Julaina Kleist. I intend to continue studying under Julaina indefinitely.

As for volunteerism, I’ve returned to the San Leandro Police Department as a Volunteer in Police (VIP). Forty-five years ago, as a rookie police officer, I shuttled cars to and from the corporation yard, to the car wash, swept the police station, emptied trash, and handled a myriad of other un-cop like tasks. As a VIP, I’m doing much the same thing, only for free.

I’m excited about this turn in the road I’ve made and am looking forward to new adventures. If you would like to read samples of my writing or hear more about my journey, feel free to check out my blog.
