Unexpected Tales – Four Stories of Kaiatan
Four short stories from Kaiatan, the world of Unexpected Heroes. Mermaids, shapeshifters, and winged people--oh my!
In an underwater village in Nokailana, can the friendship of the new boy and a pretty girl last, or will his arrogant dad ruin everything?
In the desert of Iskra, a young man must stay alone for a month to be considered an adult, if the desert doesn't kill him first.
In Darrendra, land of the shape-shifters, a young woman aims to be a five-year champion in a cross-country horse race.
In winged Ioj, a newly chosen priest finds his back-country origins to be a disadvantage that might send him home.
About Marty C. Lee (Salt Lake City, Utah Author)
Marty C. Lee told stories for most of her life, but never took them seriously until her daughter asked her to write a particular one. The plotted six chapters grew to an entire novel, and now a series is in progress.
Her characters take over her brain on a regular basis. If you catch her muttering to thin air, she’s probably arguing with one of her characters. She has learned to keep a notebook by her bed to jot down ideas so she can go to sleep and deal with them in the morning.
In between writing and spending time with her family, she reads, embroiders, gardens, and teaches small children at church. She prefers walking over bicycles or cars, because her feet are less scary. (If she walks, she can read at the same time, which is a nice bonus.)
