The book tells the tale of high school outsider Wendell, who loses himself in books to escape the presence of his distant, motorcycle-obsessed stepfather.

Exploring an abandoned and reportedly haunted Renaissance fair in the woods, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with 'Sir Habersham', a man who claims to be a Mediaeval knight and dragon-slayer.

"Everything authors write has pieces of them in their scripts," said Northrop. "How can it not? But the first one should be extra personal.

"The Reason for Dragons addresses what it's like to grow up without direction, which honestly, everyone deals with. You meet people in your life that shape you. You can meet a stranger who can have a tremendous effect on your life or on your choices, how you handle problems. That fascinates me. Everyone has their own dragons to face."

The Reason for Dragons will debut in May.
