Inheritance Series

I Bring My Nerd Everywhere I Go

While spending way too much time in a busy waiting room, my 4-year-old shouts: Mama! You brought your dragon book!

Inheritance Series
Book Three of the Inheritance Series, which turns out to be an excellent fantasy series found in the TEEN section of Barnes and Noble. Thanks for the heads up, Will.

Me {furtively glances about}: Yes. Yes I did.

Her {whipping it out of my bag}: Does it have any pictures?

Me {sighing}: No. But it has a map.

Map from the Inhertience Series
SPOILER ALERT if you look too closely at this map with elf and dwarf questions.

Her: Are the dragons there? Or there?

Me: They are there and here and…

We’re interrupted by my cellphone ringtone:

KIRK TO ENTERPRISE. COME IN ENTERPRISE.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
