Fairly Certain
by Deborah Ann Davis

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Young Adult Fiction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Petir takes a rough tumble in the Connecticut woods, but awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow...and arrow. Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne. But when she is captured by the enemy, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.

EXCERPTS (Your Exclusive Excerpt):


“Blimey, ‘e’s not one of us, is ’e?”

“Nay, not one of us. Look at ‘is clothes.”

“Is ‘e dead?” The British-accented voices murmuring from above began to register, but the snuffling wet nose by Petir’s ear drew his immediate attention. A groan escaped him in response to what felt like a toe nudging him none too gently in his aching ribs.

“Hah! I told you ‘e was not dead!” cried a voice as the offending toe was removed.

I guess I fell asleep after all. He opened his eyes just a slit, grimacing through the glare of early morning sunlight. Confused, he slammed them shut.

What the h*ll? Elves? Or, at least a bunch of kids dressed like elves. British elves, from the sound of them. He peeked again, then scrunched his eyes closed. And a three-legged dog.

The wet snuffling resumed near his other ear. Peter swatted at the offending beast. A myriad of aches and pains identified his injuries, each vying for his attention. He dropped his elbow across his face with another groan.

“Sit, Trio!” someone commanded. The enthusiastic snuffling ceased.

A three-legged dog named Trio? Even through his pain and confusion, he found that one funny.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I’m DEBORAH ANN DAVIS, and I write Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. I began writing when searching for inspiration for my 5th grade English Journal. Lo and behold, my world was full of funny tales just waiting to be told. It never occurred to me to pursue writing, not even when I discovered my flare for telling stories at college parties.

After a string of undergrad majors, I realized I could reach a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? I jumped into teaching with both feet and loved it for 27 years. It came with an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh. Go figure.

Twelve years after our first kiss, I reunited with, and married my childhood sweetheart. Together we coached our daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, our daughter and our money went to college.

During a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, I turned to Fitness to boost my Health, and to Writing to boost my Happiness. Currently, I am a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to write.

We presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When I’m not writing novels for my Love of Fairs series, I enjoy dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. I also promote increasing movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer in my Merry Meddling blog at http://deborahanndavis.com/merry-meddling/ .
