Early 1850. Something hungry moves among the hulls of the abandoned ships blanketing San Francisco bay like an abandoned graveyard. The whispers spread, “There be dragons here.”
Why does Abby Crumb get the feeling she might be the dragon’s main course?
Wild, Wild West with mini demons and turbulent magic tempered with a dash of Victorian sensibility. And of course, a resident dragon.
ABOUT LOUISA SWANN
While “discovering” herself as a writer, Louisa experimented with a variety of day jobs, including slush reader, editor, and managing editor, gaining insider information on the world of writing and publishing. At the same time, she built her writing skills by not only writing, but taking classes, attending conferences, chatting with other writers, and … writing some more. Louisa is the chaotic imagination behind a wide variety of writings, from Star Trek short stories to quirky fantasy, from humor-laden tales to dark, shadowy noir, the kind of imagination that resulted in nightmares when she was small, “stage plays” when she was a teeny bopper (do they even use that term anymore?), angst-filled poetry in her teens, and short stories and novels when she finally realized that same imagination could actually prove useful. Modern “country/western” comes to life under the pen name Jonesey Carlson and dark fantasy/noir under the pen name Lisa Gaines — everything else is Louisa’s “game.”
