My Grandmother's Dragon


My Grandmother's Dragon


     Take one small Texas town, add one grandmother, three neighborhood children, one teenage granddaughter, a freshly baked batch of cookies and one large dragon.

     Stir lightly and let the adventure begin.

"An engaging story about a dragon, a grandma, new friends, and cookies. A great way to improve student vocabulary and reading skills in the classroom."

S.C., Teacher and Tech Guru

     D.D. McDee has captured the heart of the windy Texas plains that birthed the wit and wisdom of this wonderful new book for young readers (and young-at-heart readers as well).

"I loved this story. I think I simply devoured it. It's for all ages really. More! More! More!"

N.E., Retired Teacher

     Learn interesting new words. Explore rural Texas attitudes -- and may you never look at a large sculpture the same again.

I come from a long line of very interesting women who embraced life and used their imaginations to inspire their children and grandchildren. From my great grandmother, who was an amazing poet, to my mother who wrote letters that were in essence sagas, I spent my life surrounded by literary creativity. 

I've had stories rattling around in my head for years, and finally decided to start putting them on paper. My Grandmother's Dragon is the first, but there are many more just waiting to escape the confines of my own imagination. 

I hope you enjoy my first book!

Illustrations by Aulysch

I definitely want to acknowledge my Illustrator Aulysch. Working with someone from Indonesia brought about it's very own set of unique requirements. Try explaining the dusty dry plains of Texas to someone who lives in a completely different and certainly more lush tropical environment. Our interactions were wonderful and the quality of the illustrations delighted me completely

Aulysh's paintings definitely have a very special magical quality, which I love. Explore more of Aulysch's work here.
