A New Adult Urban Fantasy Novel From M.D. Massey
“A cursed druid, blackmailed by a faery queen to find a missing magic rock. Let’s just hope they don’t piss the druid off… for everyone’s sake.”
Name’s Colin McCool. Folks call me the Junkyard Druid. I hate that name.
Despite my last name, I’m not “cool” like the other hunters in town. I don’t run an occult bookstore, I’ve never owned a Harley, and I didn’t inherit a family fortune passed down through generations of hunters before me.
And I kind of have this curse on me that’s messed up my life.
So things are pretty much shit right now. I live in a junkyard, my mentor Finn is a heroin addict, I’ve got the Cold Iron Circle breathing down my neck, and the local Fae Queen Maeve is blackmailing me into doing her dirty work.
Now I’m in way over my head trying to retrieve Maeve’s stolen magic rock, all while helping my friend Belladonna solve a series of murders that may or may not involve the local werewolves.
And did I mention that Finn is in debt to a gang of bloodthirsty dwarven mobsters?
If I can just get the Faery Queen’s tathlum back…
And help Belladonna solve the murders…
While keeping the red caps from killing Finn…
Then I just might live long enough to finish my first semester of college.

I’ve been an avid reader since my mom bought me my first Little Golden Book, back when “Pre-K classes” meant sitting in front of the TV watching The Letter People on PBS. I was reading classics like Homer’s The Odyssey by the time I hit the third grade… then I discovered Tolkien, Asimov, and Bradbury, and it was all downhill from there. The Hobbit was pretty much my gateway drug, which led to a life spent reading every sci-fi and fantasy book I could get my hands on. Back when I was a kid it wasn’t yet cool to be a geek, so at some point I decided I needed to learn how to defend myself against people who weren’t intimidated by the fact that I played a level 31 paladin in Dungeons & Dragons. That’s when I got into the martial arts, which as it turns out is pretty much LARPing for Japanophiles. Not being very good at adulting, years later I decided to teach martial arts for a living so I could skip the whole “work 30 years at a job you hate” thing and just go straight to doing my hobby full-time.I currently live in the Hill Country near Austin, Texas, which is where much of my fiction is set. Most days you can find me in a local coffee shop or in my office working on my next book, or in my garage pummeling inanimate objects.
