An Unexpected Escapade: a Unicorn Fantasy by Kandi J Wyatt with a Giveaway!
Blurb:
A rift in the space-time continuum in the Oregon town of Myrtle Beach allows a unicorn to waltz into the pasture with Daisy Vincent’s appaloosas, but when a poacher shows up, who will stop at nothing to gain the unicorn horn and its tears, navigating junior high suddenly becomes a breeze by comparison.

Interview with a Character:

What is your name?
            Hello, I’m Winston P. Raleigh, homeland security agent on special assignment here in Myrtle Beach, Oregon. I find it ironic that I go from one Myrtle Beach to another, but let me tell you, Myrtle Beach, Oregon, is nothing like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
            Well, being an agent with homeland security, I’ve had many achievements, but I guess, my greatest is being able to rescue mythical creatures from poachers and give them a home away from prying eyes.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
            Hm, perfect happiness would be for Jack Collins to be behind bars where he couldn’t hurt another mythical creature. Probably add to that a solution for this rift in the time-space continuum, but then I’d be out of a job. So, I guess, just have Jack incarcerated.
What is your favorite journey?
            I’ve been all over the United States as I travel for homeland security. I think my favorite place has been Myrtle Beach, at least, now that I know how to get along with the people. It was a trial at first, let me tell you. These small town folks don’t like strangers poking their noses in their business, even if it’s for their own good. Now, that I’ve learned the key to that, I think I could easily settle down around here. The people wave to you as you drive by, they’re friendly in the stores, and Barry has the best coffee anywhere!
What is it that you most dislike?
            Oh, do not get me started. There are several things that I hate. First, it’s Jack Collins. His unwavering dedication to gather all the magical abilities of all mythical creatures at any and all costs drives me nuts. I shiver at what he contemplates, let alone accomplishes. I’ll fight to my last breath to keep him from finding any more mythical creatures.
            I guess, hate is too strong a word for Charles Hopkins, after all he does pay my bills, but really, the man has no clue what it’s like to be in the field. His no nonsense approach to life doesn’t enable the agent to react to real-life. Besides that he’s abrupt to the point where he’s rude.
            Sorry, I shouldn’t speak any more on either of these subjects.
What is your greatest fear?
            Fear, oh, that. Well, to be honest, it would be that I’d lose my job and mythical creatures would be harmed in the process. Can we move on?
What is your greatest regret?
            I really feel bad about how this past summer went. You see, I was new to Myrtle Beach and didn’t know how life was around here. I thought people would be the same as they are back east. To say the least I was wrong—dead wrong. These folks are very reserved, but once you get into their confidence, you’ve gained a friend. I didn’t know all this last April when I came and made a mess of a whole case—almost lost my job because of it. Carl Silverton of The Crab Shack still avoids me to this day, and that’s causing some harm in my current assignment. Besides all that, the town of Myrtle Beach almost burnt down because of my fumbles. I’m impressed the citizens didn’t run me out.

            Now, I need to move along. Looks like there’s another anomaly on my time-space detector. Another creature may be coming through. I’ll chat with you later.
