About the Author

J. A. Pitts is a graduate of the Oregon Coast Writers Workshops and holds degrees in English and Library Science. Black Blade Blues is the first in a fantasy series featuring Sarah Beauhall.


"Pitts combines Norse mythology, smith-lore and a deep love of the Pacific Northwest in this fast-paced urban fantasy about dragons posing as investment bankers, Hummer-driving giants, and the woman who must defeat them while fighting her own demons of doubt and self-identity. A fresh look at some classic themes, Black Blade Blues will delight readers seeking the thrill of fantasy amid the everyday reality of overdue bills, bad traffic, and ancient plots to overthrow the order of the world." --Jay Lake, author of Escapement

"Pitts is an exciting new voice on the fantasy scene. Black Blade Blues takes the reader on a rollicking adventure full of pathos and humor. It's a sweet combination of classic fantasy and today's complex urban world. Be sure to read this exhilarating debut novel." --Brenda Cooper, award-winning author of The Silver Ship and the Sea and Reading the Wind

"Sarah Beauhall is half girl, half warrior, and all attitude. She's a skilled blacksmith who discovers a sword of great power, and finds herself in a battle against an ancient dragon, with dwarves and giants and trolls on every side, fighting to preserve her very way of life. In the midst of everything, and against the mystical backdrop that is today's Pacific Northwest, Sarah's finding out just what that way of life is meant to be--and she's not sure it suits her. Black Blade Blues is a fast-moving, action-packed story, one to please all readers of urban fantasy." --Louise Marley, author of The Singers of Nevya
