The Kiss From a Dragon

Bio of freelance writer & novelist C.D. Pennington:

A relative newcomer to the world of writing, I started work on my first novel in January 2019. As soon as I started, I was hooked, and now my new hobby has brought me far more enjoyment than I could have imagined.

For me, writing is a release. A place where I can let my imagination take over. I have always had a love of fantasy, but never before did the idea of writing my own novels occur to me.

It was when I was reading George RR Martin's epic A Song Of Ice & Fire series that something hit me, and I realised I wanted to write my own novel. I don't know what it was, but the bug bit me and I have never looked back since.

My dream is to one day write a fantasy epic series, but let's take it one step at a time!

I live in North Yorkshire with my beautiful partner and our loving ginger tom cat.

Thankyou for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy what you see, and you will come back regularly. I hope you also enjoy reading my books, that is when they are published! I would welcome your thoughts and comments.

Check out my new film reviews! Not that much time for watching films at the moment due to novel-writing, but I thought I'd make a start with the excellent 1917. Check out the review here.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

My most productive week yet. So happy to now be at 53k words into my new fantasy-horror novel, after getting stuck at the 35k mark.

Mistakes happen. It is how we learn from them that counts. I am paying for mine now, so make sure you don't fall into the same trap as me when it comes to publishing your novel.
