When I sat down to write Dragon Gold, I thought it was going to be a one off book but, once I’d got all my ideas and material together it grew into something bigger. My publishers were quite surprised, when it was first published, and I told them that it was a trilogy. I remember their eyebrows rising!
The stories evolve around a red and white dragon. The Red Dragon is the Red Dragon of Wales, which represents the Ancient British, who were pushed out by the Saxons – represented by the White Dragon. It’s all there in the story of King Lludd and the dragons in the Mabinogion, the ancient book of Welsh myths and history.
Is there a third book? There is in my head, but it hasn’t been commissioned yet. I’ll have to have a chat with my publishers, the wonderful Firefly Press.
