Mary Jane Wijtyk once wrote office technical manuals.
But, she made a jump to writing a novel, which she titled "Tears of Dragons Gone By."
Before writing the book, Wijtyk prayed about doing so. Then, she got the idea for a short story, which eventually became a long story.
Wijtyk, who lives near Hamburg,began the book in hotels while traveling between places where she was teaching software programs.
A secondary reason for writing the book was she wanted to inspire her niece to try writing.
