Deborah Ann Davis
(Love of Fairs #1)
Petir takes a rough tumble in the Connecticut woods, but awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow...and arrow. Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne.
But when she is captured by the enemy, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.

An Exclusive Excerpt from Fairly Certain:
“Ow!” Petir rubbed his arm and glared down at Cord.
She glared back. “You are not supposed to let me hit you.”
“I know I’m not supposed to let you hit me. I’m not an idiot.”
“That remains to be seen,” the youngster muttered. “You are definitely not a warrior. If you cannot defend yourself, simply say so.” She spun her staff between her hands, still frowning.
“Of course I can defend myself. I just wasn’t ready. Let’s try again.” Petir had played Wii Karate before, and he was ranked at Ping-Pong. This warrior stuff couldn’t be too hard, especially against a middle-school girl who only came up to his chest. He raised his crutch over his head with one hand, and extended his free arm in front of him like a cop trying to stop traffic. Bending his knees slightly, he ignored the pain shooting up his hamstring as his clothes flapped in the breeze. “Go for it.” Petir shifted his weight onto his good leg. Jackie Chan would be proud.
Cord shot him a disgusted look. Without changing her stance, she tossed her staff into one hand and thrust it into his midsection.
Petir dropped like a sack of potatoes. Jackie Chan would not be proud.
“Right.” Cord stood over him for a moment. “Warrior or idiot? Hmmm. Difficult choice.” Scowling, she tossed her staff on the ground next to the gasping Petir, stepped over his prostrate form, and stalked off. “I must fetch the ‘ealer. I wager she will be telling me mum about this…”

About the Author:
I’m DEBORAH ANN DAVIS, and I write Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. I began writing when searching for inspiration for my 5th grade English Journal. Lo and behold, my world was full of funny tales just waiting to be told. It never occurred to me to pursue writing, not even when I discovered my flare for telling stories at college parties.
Twelve years after our first kiss, I reunited with, and married my childhood sweetheart. Together we coached our daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, our daughter and our money went to college.
During a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, I turned to Fitness to boost my Health, and to Writing to boost my Happiness. Currently, I am a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to write.
We presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When I’m not writing novels for my Love of Fairs series, I enjoy dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. I also promote increasing movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer in my Merry Meddling blog at http://deborahanndavis.com/merry-meddling/ .
- I'm a simple girl. I love to read in my spare time and do reviews the books I read. I also write, mostly songs/poems, though I'm not published. I love music and traveling. Sometimes, I wish I could live inside a book, having my own HEA. :)
