Meet the Author

VERA NAZARIAN 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 made her novelist debut with the critically acclaimed arabesque "collage" novel DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE (2002), followed by epic fantasy about a world without color, LORDS OF RAINBOW (2003). Her novella THE CLOCK KING AND THE QUEEN OF THE HOURGLASS from PS Publishing with an introduction by Charles de Lint made the Locus Recommended Reading List for 2005. Her debut short fiction collection SALT OF THE AIR, with an introduction by Gene Wolfe, contains the 2007 Nebula Award-nominated "The Story of Love."

Recent work includes the 2008 Nebula Award-nominated, self-illustrated baroque fantasy novella THE DUKE IN HIS CASTLE (2008), the hilarious and surprisingly romantic Jane Austen parodies MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES (2009), NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS (2010), PRIDE AND PLATYPUS: Mr Darcy's Dreadful Secret (2012), science fiction collection AFTER THE SUNDIAL (2010), inspirational daily reader THE PERPETUAL CALENDAR OF INSPIRATION (2010), relationship and love advice parody VAMPIRES ARE FROM VENUS, WEREWOLVES ARE FROM MARS (2012), and the Renaissance epic fantasy COBWEB BRIDE Trilogy (2013).

She is working on a number of book-length projects including QUALIFY (The Atlantis Grail Trilogy, Book One), LADY OF MONOCHROME (a sequel to LORDS OF RAINBOW), a new Compass Rose milieu novel GODS OF THE COMPASS ROSE, and the AIREALM Trilogy.

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.

In addition to being a writer and award-winning artist, she is also the publisher of Norilana Books.

I enjoyed the book and it's an easy read. Funny about a stubborn witch who refuses to budge at anything that comes in her way.....

Enjoyable short story. Enjoyed the characterization so much that I could not put it down. Loved the witch! The ending was a bit predictable.

short. peaked my interest. kept going just to see where it was going. then it was gone. basically a "day in the life" kinda story. no back story. no continuance. just one brief time period in an average place with average people and a not so average incident. wasn't a bad read. very well written.
