A beautiful young woman in 12th century England desires to serve her country by becoming a knight long before the days of equal rights.
Scotlyn, Knightess of the Dragon is a fantasy adventure of a young woman in the final years of 12th century England.
Scotlyn's story, woven against a historical backdrop, takes her from a child to womanhood. Scotlyn desires to serve her country by becoming a knight long before the days of equal rights. She overcomes many adversaries with the aid of her friends, Ruburt, a dwarf, and Cassi, a pixie. Amidst the political turmoil of this time, Ireland's Prince John takes control of England and calls for, "Knights to arms!" Disguised as a man, Scotlyn answers that call. John, impressed with whom he thinks is a man, takes Scotlyn into his confidence.
Although he later discovers her true identity, she is granted her well-earned title of "Lady Knight." Scotlyn's hopes of a happily-ever-after are shattered when she encounters a demon force from the underworld working to destroy mankind and those plotting a political conspiracy against the kingdom. Through her adventures Scotlyn discovers she has several guardians, Woldor the Wise, a kind old dragon and a handsome mysterious archer with unearthly gifts and talents. Scotlyn must rely on a higher power to overcome fear, discouragement and temptation.
I read this book in a raw form about 2 years ago, and enjoyed it. Since then with the help of some well known published authors she has made some changes that makes it even better. I am looking forward to reading the new and improved version.

To quote Deirdra:
" The more times my book is placed on someone’s “bookshelf” the better chance I have of getting picked up by an agency or publisher.
Last night when I went to bed “Scotlyn, Knightess of the Dragon” was in the top 5000 books this morning when I woke up I was number 1987 this afternoon I am at 1545 . The competition gets harder from here because there are so many wonderful books out there. I’m hoping to knock all the books about sex, drugs and homosexuality off the shelves. I would really like to be in the top 100 books and feel that if I have the support from friends and family in spreading the word I will be able to reach this goal."
