"A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breath life and death into the future"

The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.

Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders...and soon six lives will be changed forever.

The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons' call leads them on an epic and dangerous journey of discovery. They soon learn everything they've been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.

With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call.

But an evil from the past soon threatens their discovery and newfound joy. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more...

Evil lurks at every corner and eventually bursts, bringing forth a vivid confrontation that kept me at the edge of my seat, turning page after page.” ~ Annamaria Bazzi

“The characters are well thought out, and the plot is great. I loved Galdrilene itself, and the idea of the dragon eggs singing to those who are meant to hatch them.” ~ The Crooked Word

“I was so impressed by this excellent story! The characters and setting were vividly detailed, and the storyline was unique and enticing. I loved that the characters had strong bonds and connections to other beings, and Trosper did a magnificent job with pacing and stringing together the plot.” ~ Katie Jennings (author of the Dryad Quartet and When Empires Fall)

“There is something about dragon stories that is truly captivating and Trosper has certainly encapsulated this in her novel. This story follows the lives of young men and women as they escape a life of control and fear to find their true talents and true selves… Expect to be entertained with dragon fights, romance and witty comebacks in Trosper's creation of an idyllic world. You are even given a rare insight into the workings of a dragon's mind.” ~ Elizabeth Wright of

“Anne McCaffrey's Legacy… I was extremely wary when this book was immediately evocative of every story Anne ever told about dragons, their 'Impression' on their destined riders, and the immutable bond between the two. Like Asimov's laws of robotics, Pern's dragon lore is indelibly etched as 'fact' in my psyche and anything markedly different does not sit very well with me at all. I am immensely pleased to say that A.D. Trosper did not let me down. There was enough of Pernish dragon-lore to satisfy my need for continuity, whilst at the same time enough differences to make this clutch of dragons her very own. Well done Ms. Trosper!” ~ Richard King

Here is where I'm supposed to talk about myself in third person for whatever reason. But, even though there are a lot of people in my head, referring to myself in third person still sounds too strange.

Born in Kansas, I spent a lot of my childhood moving around. I lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington State (around Seattle), and southern California. I had many great adventures growing up. I'm now settled down in Kansas with my wonderful husband, three children, my wonderful dog Katie, assorted cats, and small flock of chickens.

I've been an avid lover of fantasy since I was young child. Dragons, elves, fairies, dwarves, and other denizens of the fantasy world as well as magic have always fascinated me. As I grew up, I developed an interest in vampires, zombies and my interests branched out to take in paranormal and urban fantasy.

I don't have any special writing credits to my name other than a wildly active imagination and the ability to form that imagination into written stories.

One Phone Call Can Change Your Life....

A random phone call can change everything in the blink of an eye. Sometimes, the ringing of the phone brings painful moments. Notification from your doctor as you await test results. A friend calling to tell you about the demise of their marriage. A long lost family member contacting you out of the blue, desperate to reconnect.

But sometimes, an unexpected call is game-changing in a good way. I found myself on the receiving end of just such a call last week.

On October 30, 2012, I was a guest on ArtistFirst Radio for the second time in 2012. The interview was only an hour, but it was quite fun as we discussed my latest release, Adjusting Journal Entries. I enjoyed the banter with the host, Tony K, and once over, continued on with promoting my latest novel.

Then, three days later, the phone call came, and I almost didn't answer it. You see, I was at work and at first, didn't recognize the out-of-state number. But, at the last minute, I remembered that was the same area code that called me for my appearance on ArtistFirst, so before the last ring, I answered. On the other end was the station owner, Scott.

He introduced himself and told me the reason for his call.  Apparently, Tony K enjoyed my guest appearance on the show so much that he approached Scott with the idea of me hosting a show on ArtistFirst. Once I gathered my wits about me and wrapped my head around what Scott was offering me, the detailed discussion began about me stepping up to the plate and moving from BlogTalk Radio to ArtistFirst.

And so I have. Now, each Sunday night at 8 pm EST/ 7 pm CST, I will host a one hour show on ArtistFirst, "The Ashley Fontainne Show". My first guest on December 2, 2012 is none other than NY Times Bestselling author, Janelle Taylor. On December 9, 2012, my guest will be NY Times Bestselling author Raymond Benson. (Yes, that Raymond Benson--can you believe it? I'm nervous already!)

My BlogTalkRadio show will continue on in the hands of my great co-host, Bennet Pomerantz. His show segment, ANYTHING GOES, will still grace the airwaves. And, I will continue on with BlogTalk through my last booked show in December while I transition over to ArtistFirst.

Once again, opting to publish my work on Amazon has moved me in directions that I never thought I would take! To know that I will have the opportunity to be a part of the family at ArtistFirst is mind-boggling. I hope that each of you reading this will tune in to the shows and enjoy them as much as I will enjoy hosting them!

One phone call really can change your life. :)
