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.
After a
string of undergrad majors, I realized I could reach a captive audience EVERY
DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh,
and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and
Environmental Science? I jumped into teaching with both feet and loved it for
27 years. It came with an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they
want to make you laugh. Go figure.
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/ .

A little bit about Fairly Certain:
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.
Excerpt from Fairly Certain:
Gypsy Ana smirked at Petir. “You turn outlaw for her, eh?
Now you save the fair maiden, yes?”
“Save Wonder Woman? Hah! Trust me, there is nothing about
that girl that needs saving.”
“Ah, then she show you everything but her heart.” The
elderly woman tapped her chest with a nod.
Memory of Maid Rianne’s disappointingly hasty retreat last
night made him snort and mutter, “Not everything.”
She raised her brow.
Instant heat flooded his collar. She might not understand
his slang, but he needed to watch the sexual innuendos leaking out of his
mouth. He definitely didn’t want to make that mistake in front of Abuela. “I
mean, she hasn’t shown me how to use the bow and arrow,” he amended.
“Plenty of time for that tomorrow.”
“Yeah, if tomorrow comes.”
“Tomorrow always come,” she said as she walked away.
Not if I wake up first. It stood to reason he’d be waking up
soon. This dream seemed unusually long. What if he ended up not seeing Maid
Rianne before it ended? That would suck big time. The idea made him feel…
OMG, what am I doing? Am I crushing on Maid Rianne?
Suddenly, Petir was experiencing a private moment of embarrassment. Some dream
girl had actually stirred his interest more than any real-life girl. You are so
very lame.
No, wait. I’m a normal American nineteen-year old. I’m just
lusting after Maid Hottie.
Crushing? Lusting? It didn’t matter. Either way, it was
ridiculous. She was just a figment of his imagination.
Fairly Certain will be $0.99 during the
tour.

    Arcadia from Isaac Asimov's The Foundation Trilogy written in the 50s. She was a precocious schoolgirl who loved to write. It won the Hugo Award for "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. I just remembered that she was dictating an essay on a "laptop computer" in the story, busily changing the font to something flowing and elegant…in the 50s! Asimov was a visionary.

    Thank you for your comments.

    I don't have a favorite genre as much as I have a favorite style. I like Happily Ever After, humor, and especially surprises, whether they are in romance novels, sci fi adventures, historicals or satires.
