Richard Levy

Writing a series of young adult/adult satire fantasy novels featuring a young woman hero, Heffleburton, and a dragon, Devlin the Green. I have completed drafts of the first two books. My work is based on "fairy tale" characters with modern dispositions and problems. The stories are set in the mythical queendom of Evermore where Heffleburton grew up in the serf's village. A wry, satirical look at magic (people really cannot do magic, but can do chemistry) and radically different take on dragons which are feathered and bird like, even if eight feet tall. Many terrifying situations that Heffleburton handles with bravery and intelligence. She also is willing to dispel her own preconceptions about people and magical creatures, which help drive the stories to their climaxes. A key character in both books is the narrator, who supplies backstory, scene setting and handy advice about bookmarks, parents and fourteen-person brunches.
