The Trouble With Fairies – Peace & Prosperity, Book 1
A runaway fairy accidentally transports Joy Flint to the fantasy town of Peace & Prosperity. As a public school teacher, Joy has learned to roll with the punches and be flexible, so exploring a place full of elves, dwarfs, trolls, Sasquatch, and a family of Cyclopes should be fun compared to the terrors of her classroom. Except the town is in the midst of a dangerous wizard duel, and she can't find a way home. Mayor Harradorn suffers from a damsel-in-distress curse. Every time the unwelcome outsider gets into trouble, he has to go to her rescue. It doesn’t help that all outsiders like Joy are forced to stay forever to insure the town’s secrecy. Still, with every rescue, his heart is glad she’s not going anywhere.
With a bit of trickery and a wizard’s help, Joy escapes. But with a fairy still living with her, nothing is that simple. Harradorn shows up. His town has fallen under a horrific spell and Joy holds the key to releasing them. It’s risky. Deadly. Even if they succeed, one last evil lurks that may prevent this tale from having a happy ending. Yet with magic and love working together, anything is possible.

Besides writing novels, she is a poet, columnist, and Anthropology/ Social Studies/ English teacher whose work has been published in newspapers, magazines, and literary journals.

She now lives in a small town outside of Cheyenne with her husband and enjoys spending time with her sons, daughter-in-law, and three rambunctious grandchildren.
I have had many people ask me why, if I write psychological thrillers, do I also write romantic fantasy. The answer is easy. My brain needs balance. After months writing a fast-paced thriller about murder and mayhem, danger and testy relationships, it’s nice to take a mental vacation and write about love and humor, magic and mayhem. Yes, mayhem is a constant because without conflict, a book would be boring. At least in my romantic fantasies, the mayhem isn’t so hard-edged and desperate. Plus it’s fun to visit the magical town of Peace & Prosperity and explore its wide range of eccentric and mythical citizens, its back alleys, crazy laws, and fantastic shops. One never knows who or what is waiting around the corner. With pesky, playful, fun-loving fairies around, it’s never a dull moment.
