About jordan

Jordan’s enduring love of fantasy, especially dragons, inspired her to begin writing her debut novel, The Keepers of Eire. Her obsession with all things dragon began at an early age with a dragon music box – a gift from her mother. Her collection now encompasses hand drawn pictures, mugs, clothing, beach towels, books, jewelry, plush fabric as well as metal, porcelain, pewter, and glass figurines. A cumulative trauma injury ended a long-standing career in the electronics industry. Thus the impetus to begin a new dream; writing about the creatures that continue to capture her imagination. She lives in California with her Pomeranian, Roarke.
