Overview

Say it's 1990: The olden days. Computers are huge and come with their own air-conditioning. Monitors are tiny and come with their own blinking green line.

There are three morning news programs on TV, but only one that matters.

Outside, dragons still fly around terrorizing the skies. Maidens are still staked out to appease them. And knights still try to break things up.

Why is the sacrificial maiden business still going strong? Who notifies the authorities and files the paperwork? And most importantly, what happens when a maiden and a dragon decide they aren't interested in doing what centuries of tradition says they are supposed to do?

If you ask a knight named George, he'll tell you it's time somebody finally put things right.

About the Author

Margit Elland Schmitt
Margit Elland Schmitt is the author of several short stories, including "Sparrowjunk" (about childhood illness and a fairy's dangerous addiction to stories) and "Under Janey's Garden" (about gardens, weddings, and wizardry). In the hours she's not writing, Margit works in an elementary school library, carefully cultivating the reading habits of impressionable young people. Before becoming the library lady, Margit embraced such diverse careers as teacher, editor, actor, singer, and kitten-whisperer. Fun Fact: When Margit was in sixth grade, her teacher informed her that she lacked enough imagination to ever be a "real" writer, which inspired her with ferocious determination to get real. Is this book the result of expertly applied reverse psychology? Well played, Ms. Wilson. Well played.


Dan McLaughlin
Dan McLaughlin was born in Hollywood during halftime of a Rams - Colts game. Although the Rams scored a touchdown soon after his birth to tie the game, the Colts then scored 17 points to win. This, along with multi-decade stints at UCLA and as a government bureaucrat, has given Dan an appreciation for the subtle and sometimes capricious agency of wishes, words, actions, and consequences.

Dan has written five novels, two nonfiction works on the history of Pasadena, one musical, and a play. This is his first collaboration.


Margit and Dan
Margit and Dan met at the Renaissance Faire at Black Point in Northern California, about 30 years ago. Dan really doesn't remember the event, but apparently, he accosted Margit and her friends in the guise of a peasant huckster selling pieces of the New World real estate with his friend Mark Sellin. Time passed, and Margit began to be on the huckster end of accosting people at the Faire. Dan took note of Margit's talents as a performer, writer, and director, which he liberally exploited when he cast her as the lead "Molly Writerblock" in his operetta Oh No, Not Emily!, and as the lead (and only) Penguin "Great Goddess Bo" in his play Got Mitt Uns.
