Homeschooled from Kindergarten to High School Graduation, Kathryn has had an enormous love of writing and reading since a young age. She started writing her first novel in 2001 at the age of 10 and completed it at 600 pages! With 5 younger siblings and a group of farm animals to feed her imagination, she has no trouble finding words to describe her world, real or make believe, and her sense of humor is never lacking.
"Tales of the Wovlen: The Dragon's Son" - After the brutal massacre in his village, a broken, grieving boy chooses to live with a golden dragon in the wild rather than go to the mountains to be with his own people.

When Keegan accidentally interrupts a plot against a princess, his simple trip turns into a complicated struggle for survival. A mysterious elder appears, full of wit and riddle. Mythical monsters shed their fictional skin and hungrily pursue Keegan and his dragon. Haunting nightmares begin to tear at his mind. As he continues on his quest to be reunited with his sister, Keegan is only just beginning to understand what it means to be... The Dragon’s Son
Dawnita Fogleman is a fifth generation Oklahoma Panhandle Pioneer. Dawnita helps the love of her life manage the family business, small farm, and six amazing, exclusively homeschooled blessings. The oldest two are graduated and starting their own businesses. "Sometimes I struggle with carrying Bible, coffee, sewing basket, and feed bucket all at the same time so I commit the Bible to my heart, sip my coffee fast, sew every chance I get, delegate chores, and disciple the children along the way." On the Fogleman Funny Farm every day is a surprise! She blogs about homeschooling, homemaking, and homesteading at FoglemanForerunner.com. We are hoping Dawnita will bring her daughter/author Kathryn of Darrouzett, Texas along. Kathryn writes fantasy fiction.
