I wrote you recently with more questions about the dragon colors. Thank you for providing a more detailed response as to why there are no other colors than the ones mentioned in the books.
I also asked you how you come up with the dragons names. I recall writing your mum a few years back and told her then that if I had a dragon, it’s name would be Alaranth. I noticed in Dragonsblood (which I finally finished and enjoyed very much, though I was distraught to learn that Arith’s life had to be sacrificed) that Torene’s dragon went by the same name. I wonder if this is a coincidence?
I just had to smile and wonder if in some small way I was able to contribute to the wonderful Dragonriders of Pern series.
I look forward to reading much more from you in the future!
My pleasure. I hope it helps.
As for your question regarding Alaranth — I honestly don’t know. If so, I’d have to agree with you that it’s kinda nice to get your own dragon name put in a book!
