I have decided to call my book Nick, after my cat who passed in September 2018. He was my explorer, he was timid, but had a warrior’s heart. Like a dragon, his claws left marks but his purrs left warmth within and around me for days. The scales represent the reptile’s surface and the burned edges represent the aftermath of the dragon’s flames.
