Author Debra Chambers currently resides in Norman, Oklahoma, with her two dogs and two cats. Her love of fantasy came from stories her father told her about fairies, leprechauns, and unicorns. Later in life, she met her husband through tabletop gaming, and together they joined a live-action role-playing group, in which she took on the challenge of writing games.

“What do you do with six retired mercenaries, a fae dragon familiar, and thirty twelve-year-olds? Is that a bell I hear ringing? It’s time for school,” writes Chambers.

“Welcome to the Braidenhurst Academy where rank has no privilege; from a crown prince to a street urchin, all are treated equally. They will learn the basics of the ‘three Rs,’ along with arcane magic, healing magic, weaponry, wilderness survival skills, and much more. So, open up this book and get to your first class.”
