The following are all stories set in the ‘No Such Thing As Fairies’ universe, and feature largely the same characters. The stories (hopefully) don’t have to be read in any particular order, but the first on the list is the short story where it all began.
The subsequent stories were written based on prompts given in The Writing Workshop, which unfortunately no longer runs. I did a few more stories after its demise, but the series is – at least for the moment – discontinued.
A Brief Summary: In a sleepy rural town, Ava, daughter of a powerful and influential member of the Fey Court, has been raised human. Intended to be the perfect infiltrator, a Fey agent with human influence and know-how, the Court has big plans for her. But Ava has human friends – Holly and her nerdy little brother Adam – and human desires. She knows what the Court wants from her, but what about what she wants?
