Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973165707, Paperback)

A heart-tugging novel about loss and recovery, The Dragon In Me is a page-turning story of a teen on the cusp of manhood who escapes from the turmoil of his life by turning to a darker side of his karate.

Rob Ethan's starting university, and he's having a tough time concentrating. His mother is drinking too much and has moved out of the house. His brilliant, wisecracking new friend Julius is heading for serious trouble. On top of it all there's Alana, the pretty, sophisticated girl in his philosophy class who he can't imagine could like him back. In the world in which Rob wanders, there is the street, where Rob goes looking for danger and finds it.

But there is also wisdom to be found in difficult experiences and from wise people who offer Rob guidance through their own ways of being. They're trying to lead Rob to his inner dragon.
But will he find it amid the chaos that surrounds him?

Drawn from real-life experience of martial arts training for the development of mind, body and spirit, this tale is transformational but never preachy, thanks in large part to the author's quest to let lessons slowly emerge as the story unfolds.
