    This fantasy fiction book was written for "tweens" as a teaching tool to illustrate practical application of putting on the armor of God as outlined in Ephesians chapter six. Kids of all ages have enjoyed this fast paced drama and compelling story. It has been used as a companion to bible study on spiritual warfare as scripture is seasoned throughout the book and the Word of God is used as the ultimate weapon in defeating the "dragons." Join these five young people as they discover the depth of the love of God and power of the Word of God while they fight to escape a terrifying nightmare of demonic dragons!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Robin Gray-Strickland
Located in: Perry, Florida
Submitted: March 30, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I live in the rural town of Perry, Florida with my daughters, Christian and Stephanie Wigglesworth and my husband, Bert Strickland. I am a wife, a mother, a freelance writer, and a nurse. I am also a loving daughter, a caring sister, a good friend, and a child of the Most High God. My daughter Christian is fourteen and an aspiring actress / evangelist / missionary. Stephanie is thirteen and my youngest. She is a writer like me, but she is even better. We live with my husband, Bert, who is the biggest goofball in the world. He thinks every man should be blessed enough to go to work everyday holding a fishing pole instead of a briefcase. Our wonderful Lord loves Bert enough to allow him to do just that, and he is a commercial fisherman. We are confronted with the same trials and difficulties that many families are faced with, but we endeavor to trust God in all things. Bert and I met in a drug and alcohol recovery program, and we dedicate much of our spare time to pointing other people toward Jesus, and helping them recover from addiction. We are constantly reminded of where we came from, and how very blessed we are.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  When I first entertained the idea of "The Dragon Hunters," I thought about it as a challenge my daughter Christian gave me to write a story that would rival "Harry Potter"; engaging the reader, but with a Christian theme. With all of the bad press "Harry" had been getting in the Christian media, I didn't pay it much attention, at first. But something kept gnawing at me; really bothering me. My daughter, who was only twelve at the time, was a devout Christian (whose name happens to be "Christian") and an avid reader who just wasn't too impressed with books for her age group in the Christian market. Why should the secular market get all of the really great story tellers and creativity and in the process captivate the imaginations of our intelligent young readers? I decided to take Christian's challenge, and use it to teach her, her sisters and my nephews about spiritual warfare and putting on the armor of God. I had the most fun I've ever had writing that book, because I got to marry my two favorite subjects: the Word of God and compelling, fast-paced story telling!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  As the reader follows Dee, Christian, Jenny, Bo, and Stephanie into Dee's imaginary world of demonic dragons, I hope he will learn how to identify his enemy, and put on the whole armor of God as outlined in Ephesians chapter six. I want the young reader to be carried along effortlessly by the story, so that he never feels he is being bogged down by some dry reading assignment. When he finishes this book, I want the reader to be able to take his knowledge about the power of the Word of God and how it protects the believer against the wiles of the enemy and apply that knowledge to his everyday life in the "real" world.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My favorite authors are Max Lucado, Beth Moore, Jamie Buckingham, C. S. Lewis, Dame Agatha Christie and the Apostle Paul (not neccessarily in that order!) As a writer, the person who influenced my life the most was my grandmother, B. J. Gray, whose passion for a well written book was only surpassed by her love of fishing. Even when I was a little girl she believed that I had a special gift with crafting words and shaping them into pictures, and finally convinced me that maybe she was right. My source of inspiration is the Word of God. I just can't seem to find anything more wonderful to write about, or talk about. Within its pages I have come to love Jesus with unmatched fervor, and I have seen the ways of an awesome God. I have opened my Bible, inclined my ear, and heard His gentle whisper as well as His thunderous shout. I have tasted His goodness, felt His mercy, and been covered by His grace. "The Word of God is the REAL hope diamond," I told my daughter the other day. "In it, you can always find hope, and no matter how many times you look at it, you can always see a new facet of its beauty when the Light shines on it."

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  If you've read "The Dragon Hunters" and would like to contact me, I can be reached at e-mail: robingray@perry.gulfnet.com or Robin Gray-Strickland 312 North Quincy Street Perry, Florida 32347 I am currently in the process of developing the scriptural research for "The Dragon Hunters" into a seven to eight week bible study for youth on spiritual warfare and the whole armor of God.
