Cubicle drone by day, fantasy writer by night - the wizards and centaur type, not the ideas the creepy guy who wants to buy me a margarita has about fantasy.
My dream is to become a full-time writer, either that or a wizard, oh, yeah, and ride a pegasus. If that is out, I'll settle for a corner office and my own parking spot.

Wizard and Spy: Book 1 The Ex-Apprentices
Lucia's sad life improves after she's apprenticed to a witch. She makes her first friend, Denae, and even gets her first birthday present, a pegasus. All would be well if not for the king telling Denae she can't be a spy, a father determined to bring Lucia home, and that prophecy that she's doomed to commit murder by magic.

This is a very short story, but a charming and well-written one.

I just finished this book and immediately went to see if this author had written another. He has renewed my faith in self-published books. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon today and I read the book in one sitting.
Yes, it probably borrows from Lord of the Rings a little, but I loved Lord of the Rings, so I thought it was great. I would have liked it a little bit more if there had been any female characters in the book besides the minor role played by the queen. Other than that bit of there being no women involved in anything, the author drew a believable portrait of another world, which is what writing fantasy is all about.
