The Origins of Red Dragon’s Keep
Natli VanDerWerken on Red Dragon’s Keep
Here’s a short bio.
Natli VanDerWerken loves Dragons, the myths and the legends. She has 30 dragons that she collected from around the world while she served as a meteorologist and anti-submarine warfare specialist in the Navy. Red Dragon’s Keep grew out of a tale that she told to her grandchildren one Christmas Eve. She is a website designer, quilter, and Navy veteran. Red Dragon’s Keep is her debut novel.

Here’s a slightly longer one.
Natli started writing when she was twelve. She wrote stories just for herself in which she was always the hero. She thought she might be a veterinarian, a chemical engineer, or an astronaut.
She joined the Navy instead and served as a meteorologist and anti-submarine warfare specialist. She holds a BS and MS in Computer Systems. She is a website designer and shows Shetland Sheepdogs. She has three daughters and five grandchildren.
She enjoys writing, quilting, gardening, riding, and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. Next is learning how to sword fight.
Here’s the one from the book.
Natli fell in love with science fiction when she ‘borrowed’ her father’s copy of Sixth Column by Robert Heinlein. She was twelve. She was always the hero in the stories she wrote for herself. She thought she might be a veterinarian, a chemical engineer, or an astronaut.
She joined the Navy instead and became a meteorologist and anti-submarine warfare specialist. She was the first woman assigned to the meteorology office at the Naval Air Station, Naha, Okinawa, Japan.
Natli designs websites, shows Shetland Sheepdogs and writes fantasy and science fiction. She has three girls, four grandsons, and one granddaughter. Natli is a native Coloradan and lives in Aurora, Colorado.
She would love to have a Dragon for a friend. She enjoys quilting, target practice, riding, and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. Next is learning how to sword fight.
(She still has that paperback copy of Sixth Column)
