We dive into her book Enchanted Sacred Garden: Dragon, as the story unfolds, in this episode we analyze the psychology of character fulfillment and why the power of choice is the real key factor in a transformation arc. Wittingly or unwittingly shaping our self-image by our creative experience in the past. Likewise, using that same methodology, you can change it.

Understanding the motivations that drive us are often a mystery- even to ourselves. Angie and I talk about self-reflection and the impact from our past transgressions.

It was a pleasure to sit down with a very bright-minded author, Angie Rooker. I found her new book, and our interview offers a lot of hope. A confident belief that Angie Rooker will be the next J.K. Rowling. You can check out her work and celebrate with her release of The Enchanted Garden: Dragon today.

Quiet and curious, Dragon Gaelen isn’t a typical dragon. For one, she was raised by gnomes.

Having lost everything before she was hatched, Dragon knows very little about her origin. Growing up among the cob and wood houses of peaceful Gnome Colony, she’s always felt accepted and loved—but never entirely as she belonged.

When her adoptive family enrolls her in the impressive Breezewillow Academy, Dragon believes it holds the key to the missing pieces of her past. Surrounded by students and teachers from all across Enchanted Sacred Garden, she hopes she’ll finally stop feeling like an outsider.

However, Breezewillow isn’t at all what she expects. On her first day, she feels lost,

overwhelmed, and betrayed. She believed meeting other dragons would help her find herself.

Instead, she finds herself the target of their jokes, teased for her difference, and never embraced as one of their own. Filled with shame and self-loathing, Dragon must choose to stay silent and bury her past—or find her voice among the pain.

A compelling story about being true to ourselves, Dragon takes us on a journey of self-

acceptance—illustrating how the choices we make impact the magic we wield.
