About Vera Nazarian

VERA NAZARIAN is a two-time Nebula Award Finalist, 2018 Dragon Award Finalist, award-winning artist, a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and a writer with a penchant for moral fables and stories of intense wonder, true love, and intricacy.

She immigrated to the USA from the former USSR as a kid, sold her first story at the age of 17, and since then has published numerous works in anthologies and magazines, and has seen her fiction translated into eight languages.

She is the author of critically acclaimed novels DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE and LORDS OF RAINBOW, the outrageous parodies MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES and NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS, and most recently, PRIDE AND PLATYPUS: MR. DARCY'S DREADFUL SECRET in her humorous and surprisingly romantic Supernatural Jane Austen Series, as well as the Renaissance epic fantasy COBWEB BRIDE Trilogy.

Her bestselling and award-winning series THE ATLANTIS GRAIL is now a cross-genre phenomenon -- a high-octane YA / teen dystopian apocalyptic science fiction adventure, romance, and historical mystery thriller -- has been optioned for film, and is in development as a major motion picture franchise or TV series.

After many years in Los Angeles, Vera lives in a small town in Vermont, and uses her Armenian sense of humor and her Russian sense of suffering to bake conflicted pirozhki and make art.

Review by: rmkoske on March 22, 2012 :
Very nice. The witch and her magic are quirky and unreasonable while simultaneously logical and dignified, and I love that kind of witchiness. Definitely appropriate as a YA story, but it has the classic feel of The Wizard of Oz or (as another reviewer mentioned) Mary Poppins, and I don't doubt I'll be reading it again and again.

Review by: Eden Mabee on Jan. 23, 2012 : (no rating)
This delightful novella written by Vera Nazarian is living proof that the best things in life can be free. Not-quite reminiscent of Mary Poppins but sharing echos, The Witch Who Made Adjustments reminds us, gently, with humor and generosity of the value of being kind to others. Not that the intention of the piece is to drill us with a lesson. It’s very clear that Vera Nazarian’s primary goal is to entertain us, but like all writers of classic tradition, there is a moral for those who want it. A moral…or is that morsel? In truth, the story was sweet, and buoyant, and eloquent. Something to not start reading if you need to put down your Kindle before you finish.

Review by: Tisáne Publishing on Jan. 22, 2012 :
"The Witch Who Made Adjustments" is typical, wonderful Vera Nazarian: Surprising, funny, scary, never what you think it is, with a little bit of wisdom tossed in. I scared the cat when I laughed out loud in the beginning and I swear I didn't move an inch during some of the later sequences. This story is as bewitching as the main character is bewitched. It's $2.00 and you'll want to read it again and again. It is good for all ages, too.
