Science Fiction by Thea Hutcheson

Thea Hutcheson explores far away lands full of magic and science with one hand holding hope and the other full of wonder.  Lois Tilton of Locus said her work “is sensual, fertile, with seed quickening on every page. Well done…”  She lives in an economically depressed, unscenic, nearly historic small city in Colorado with four semi-feral cats, 1000 books, and an understanding partner.  She is a factotum when she is filling the time between bouts at the computer.

Desperately unhappy and completely inept at any kind of magic the school teaches, she wonders why the headmaster insists she stay at the school. When she finds the horrifying answer, she must use her humble powers to save herself and find her true place as a practicing witch.
