Once upon a time Princess Eve was held captive in the castle by the great dragon, Ruynne. Many honorable knights of the Continent endeavored to rescue her, but all failed.

Knue knows what must be done, but lacks the courage to become an honored knight of the Continent, slay the dragon, and rescue the headstrong princess. Can he overcome his fear? And does Princess Eve, who has a mind of her own, even want to be rescued?

In this fairy tale fantasy, Knue's trepidation is not unfounded, for a determined wizard, a dangerous dragon, and a duplicitous duke all stand between Knue and the princess. And none of them want to see Knue succeed.

Will Knue discover within himself the valor he needs to overcome all of these obstacles and achieve a happily ever after ending?

KNUE WHO SLEW THE DRAGON is a novella told in a style similar to older, classic fairy tales. It is a complete and stand alone story. However, together with LOVE AND ABSINTH and SYCORAX AND THE SORCERER, it comprises one of the fairy tales in a trilogy containing intertwining characters and scenes.

About the Author

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a little baby girl was born. As she grew, Debey Sklenar dreamed of writing fairy tales, but an Evil Queen called Life saw what Debey was doing and wanted to stop her from writing any fairy tales of her own. Hence, the Evil Queen put a curse on Debey so that she would be distracted from writing fairy tales. And so, for most of her life, Debey was distracted with other things, such as reading, dancing and playing hockey, not to mention the fact that she eventually had to get a "real" job and start paying the bills. But deep down, she never forgot her dreams.

When she got to college, she took English classes in the hopes that someday her dreams of becoming a published author would come true. Then, one day, that dream came true when Dance Teacher Now Magazine published an article Debey wrote in 1993 called "How Copyright Protects Your Choreography." But this success only made the Evil Queen all the more jealous, and she placed another curse upon Debey so that she became even more distracted with everyday life. As she worked harder and harder to keep up and pay the bills, she began writing less and less and less. She went through jobs as a Direct Care Aide and a Master Control Operator. On the side she became more and more distracted with dancing and choreographing. The Evil Queen called Life looked on from afar and was very well pleased with the results of her curse for quite some time.

Until one day when Prince Charming came along. He told her that the Evil Queen could only win if Debey let her and inspired her to keep pressing onward and to follow her dreams. So Debey fought life back and wrote a fairy tale of her own. Thus the curse was broken!

Or so she thought. Little did Debey realize that the Evil Queen could also foil her plans by enlisting the help of King Time to take away what little time she found to write. She had to fight the curses with all her strength as she battled to continue writing fairy tales of her own. Finally she found a way to complete a trilogy of three intertwining fairy tales. (She also writes middle grade fiction. With a little luck, those may someday be available as well.)

Still to this day, the Evil Queen continues to interfere by casting her curses. In response, Debey fights back by writing with what time she can find. And that happily ever after ending continues to get closer and closer and closer.
