Amberly and the Secret of the Fairy Warriors
by Gina Vallance




Twelve-year-old Amberly doesn’t quite fit in with all the other fairies in Whimsical Land. One of her wings is undersized and paralyzed and instead of flying she has to run and leap through the air with the help of a stick. It’s awkward, it’s no fun, and she sometimes gets bullied for it, too. Worse than that, her mother worries about her disability and won’t let her take sword-fighting lessons with her sorcerer uncle. But Amberly’s been reading a fascinating book, Secret of the Fairy Warriors, and it’s given her a clue to where her father disappeared when she was a young fairy. If she doesn’t learn how to be a fairy warrior, she’ll never get the chance to rescue him. Dark forces are at work, though, and Amberly and her fairy-butterfly watcher Safflower fall through a magical portal to where everything’s in dark and scary contrast to the brilliance and light of Whimsical Land. Someone she meets and what she does there will change her life forever. This middle-grade fantasy bursts with imagination and tucked into all the fun and adventure are unforgettable lessons on self-acceptance, personal-empowerment, and overcoming adversity.


Gina Vallance has an AA degree in child development and a BA in English. She has worked as a preschool teacher and also as an art activity facilitator in a courthouse’s children’s waiting room. A childhood illness that sometimes left her marginalized and bullied was the inspiration for Amberly, a fairy who refuses to be sidelined by her disability. Gina works in Social Services in Los Angeles County and is happily married to her soulmate. They have a Shorkie dog named Emma, a Malshi dog named Raffaele, and two feline sisters named Belle and Jasmine. The next book in Gina’s series, Onyx, is on the way.
