Inspiration for Dragor
I wanted to write books with universal appeal, that were fantastical and ‘out there’ and yet still felt somehow real; to fulfil the expectations of book lovers and also hook non-readers back into reading. For me this had to be in the form of a series set in a place we would all be excited to visit – and so the Land of Dragor came to be.
The most beautiful places that I had seen on my international travels were integrated into the setting of Dragor: the amazing mountains of Colorado, the great deserts of Palm Springs, California, the vast waters in the Lake District, and the seaside caves of Cornwall -not forgetting the enchanting wilderness of Scotland. Dragor would be my ideal place to live – full of magnificent scenery, bursting with animals and nature’s magical flowers and plants. A place full of adventure, excitement and promise.” – Julia Suzuki
