About Winged Pursuit: The Magical Arts Academy is anything but ordinary. It’s the one place Isadora can learn the forbidden craft. With mythical beasts, animals with unusual gifts, and a team of peculiar magicians, Isadora finally has the chance to embrace an extraordinary future. But is the academy really as safe as Isadora thinks? Or will the Sorcerers find the way to infiltrate its defenses? About Unexpected Agents: The Academy has a new breed of teachers. They transform into the nightmares of legend. But they aren’t Isadora’s greatest concern. The Sorcerers are always one step ahead. And the magicians at the academy are all that prevent them from crushing those without magic. It doesn’t matter that Isadora is new to the world of powers. She’s part of the fight now. She must discover those agents, who threaten them in secret, before it’s too late… or the fight will be over before it’s really begun.

But even their knowledge of the craft might not be enough to save them from the unrelenting Sorcerers, who will stop at nothing to take down anyone who opposes them.

Or will Isadora be forced to fight for their lives with magic she never realized she possessed? *** The Magical Arts Academy is a complete series and consists of 13 episodic installments, each a novella in length.

In nineteenth century Norland, magic is forbidden, punishable by death. But it’s coming for Clara… Clara was born to the nobility at a time when rank and power are often more valuable than the bonds of family. Her parents have plans for her, none that she wants, all involving her arranged marriage to a suitor selected for her, without her input. From her birth, her entire life has been planned out for her, from lessons with her governess in academics—only what a future wife in society needs to know, of course—to etiquette and needlepoint.
