About She Dreamed of Dragons:

Trina is a fifteen-year-old dragon mage in a kingdom ruled by witches and wizards – the same people who have brought dragons and other magical creatures near extinction. Trina can barely control her fire powers and is desperate for an apprenticeship, but finding a fellow dragon mage to be her teacher is proving more difficult than coming across an actual dragon.

Then there’s the Royal Tourney – a competition presented by the Queen to find a successor to the throne. Trina heads to the competition in the hopes of sparking some interest in the mage society and earning herself an apprenticeship.

She never intended to be a frontrunner in the competition.

She never meant to catch the attention of the evil witch trying to take over the throne.

She never expected to fall for a wizard.

Now Trina must face tough decisions about who she is and who she could become. Trina must ask herself: Can she really win the Royal Tourney?

Favourite Cat Breeds

There are plenty of feline familiars in She Dreamed of Dragons, including one cat that is modeled after my own very first cat, Smokey. I adopted Smokey with my mom when I was nine years old and she lived with us for eighteen years. Since then I have adopted and grown to love other cats, including the following:

1. Smokey
Before we learn about the other cats, let’s make sure to learn a bit more about Smokey. I wanted a cat for years – ever since I was very small I knew I was a cat person. When my mom finally decided it was okay for us to get a cat, I decided I wanted a grey and white one. My mom started looking in the paper for new litters of kittens and would call and ask if they had any grey and white kittens. We finally hit the jackpot with Smokey, who was one of six other female kittens in her litter. My mom took my brother and I to go and pick her up. She was a playful kitten, but from early on she was very shy. She was terrified of the doorbell, vacuums, and strangers. She only really liked two humans: my mom and I. She would often sleep at the foot of my bed during the night.

2. Cleo
After Smokey’s passing, my mom and I decided to get two kittens together – I would pick one and she would pick one. My mom had her heart set on finding a ginger kitten and I wasn’t really particular about what kind of cat I looking for. We visited the Humane Society several times before I found a kitten I liked – at the time her name was Tinkerbelle but I renamed her Cleo. She is a very peculiar, tiny cat who has grown very attached to my dad, so she now lives with my parents and her cat-brother Colby.

3. Colby
Colby is the tiny little ginger and white kitten my mom picked out at the Humane Society. Even though they were kittens from different litters, Colby and Cleo quickly bonded and would snuggle up and take naps together. Colby was a very playful and energetic kitten who grew up to be a very large cat who loves to be taken outside to explore the garden.

4. Callie
Callie is my little cat-shadow – she’s a fluffy black cat who likes to follow me everywhere. I wasn’t planning on adopting Callie, I just happened to see her at the Humane Society and felt something special. I already had Cleo, so at first wasn’t going to adopt Callie. After thinking about it at home some more, I ended up going back for her and am very grateful I did. She is a special cat who I love very much.

5. Lucy

Lucy is my boyfriend’s cat, but I now share a home with my boyfriend, Lucy and Callie. Lucy is an older cat and needs time to warm up to new people (and cats). Now that we have been living together for over a year, Lucy is very dear to me. Lucy and Callie are not cuddle buddies, but they do get along.
