They say that the beauty of Ireland’s green land,
Is the last piece of work by the Creator’s hand,
and the clear mountain waters that flow to the sea,
made the raindrops that carved this old island of green.

There’s welcomes for strangers that come to our land,
there’s music and blarney and welcoming hands,
there’s feasts of the finest and dances and reels,
but few know the truth of the ghosts in our fields.

Strong grows the dock weed ‘midst thistle and rush,
where the wild flowers dance to the winds of the south.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
