Unicorns and the Readers Who Love Them


I have loved unicorn since I was five years old. Especially unicorns with rainbow manes. I don’t know if this is a My Little Pony thing or because I watched Rainbow Brite as a child and I loved her unicorn—which could, of course, also fly.

Every once in a while, I write a short story with unicorns in them. They have to be sassy and weird unicorns because that’s just the kind writing that I do. A few years ago I put together a collection of short stories titled, Fairies, Robots and Unicorns—Oh my! A lot of people commented on that unicorn with the laser rainbow gun on the cover.


When I was writing the Womby’s School for Wayward Witches Series and I included unicorns, some people love the chauvinistic unicorns with potty mouths, and some people really hated them, because they were very different than what people imagine unicorns should be.

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite unicorn things with you.
