Mark of the Dragon Blurb


In a land of warriors and dragons, everything is about to


Countries are divided and war is raging, but none of that matters to Andra. She

is destined to be a dragon rider. There has never been a woman rider, but that

doesn't matter to her. After her father's death, she trains harder than any man

to be a worthy candidate. Even when the Aquastrian leader wants her dead, she

fights back. Can she over come traveling hundreds of miles on foot, surviving

hunger, bandits, assassins and wild carnivores? 

Liam is just another warrior who hopes he is worthy of the Mark of the Dragon.

He must endure the long trek from Aquastra to Santerrian, avoiding all people,

especially those who may be hired to kill him. Meeting Andra along the way changes

everything. He admires her willful spirit and is inspired to do even more as a

warrior and stop the war. He fights to help her, kills to protect her, but will

it be enough to get them both to their dragons before it's too late?

About the Authors

M.R. Polish was born in Idaho, a long, long, long, well, maybe not that

long time ago.... Writing has always been there for her. Growing up, her mind

was filled with stories, some she shared and others she filed away to write

down later in life. It wasn't until 2011 that she decided to publish her

stories for everyone to enjoy. Her first award, and when writing became more

than just an idea, was in the 5th grade. She won the scary story contest for

the school newspaper. It is one story she still has tucked away for memories.

Her teacher told her she could be anything she wanted and that she had a talent

for writing, being creative and drawing people into her stories. M.R. took that

to heart and continued to write, although mostly in secret until recent years.

Now you can find her enjoying life with her family -

wrangling her four kids, setting traps in the house with toys for unsuspecting

victims (aka, her husband) and writing down all her crazy and fun stories.

"Life is too

short to stand by and watch everyone else live your dreams. The bigger the

dream, the bigger the adventure!
" ~ M.R. Polish


Bill Morgan is M.R.’s dad, and if she was born that long ago, You all

should shudder at how long ago he was born. 

He has always been creative.  As

an amateur artist and an avid woodworker, he always could see the hidden beauty

in a blank piece of paper or a piece of wood.

He joined the U.S. Coast Guard in 1986 and spent twenty years saving

lives and serving his country.  He always

had stories running around in his head, but he never tried to put them onto

paper until M.R. convinced him to do this book with her.  Now he is actively writing two additional

sci-fi/fantasy novels.   Hopefully she

hasn’t created a monster.  Bill’s

favorite thing is his family.  He has a

wonderful wife, two adult daughters, four sisters, and more wonderful nieces

and nephews than you can believe.  His

last count was over one hundred and he loves them all.   One of his favorite quotes comes from a

movie, but it applies to writing a fictional novel as well:

 “Don’t know where we’re going, but there’s no sense in being late.”  ~Mathew Quigley
