Canadian author, Lorna J. Carleton.

Located in the store entrance of the Coles at the Northgate Mall sits a full table of dragon-themed decorations. The exquisite display presented upon shoppers draws their attention. Those who come up can find a blue and white female dragon rider statuette, a brown geode dragon egg, a pewter and amethyst wand, and a set of dragon bookends. Blue, green and clear gems and jewels, medallions, and necklaces adorn the table top. However, these items are not for sale. They are merely for show to bring attention to the stack of books sitting in one of the corners. And under the table is a stuffed toy dragon to play with for the kids who say hi to the woman standing behind the table. That woman is Canadian author, Lorna J. Carleton.
