Flying With Fairies: Sleeper Cell

by Robert H. Cherny

A pair of young doctors with magical healing powers celebrate the birth of their daughter. The families, one magical and one not, love the tyke and are stunned when they learn of the baby’s magical powers which exceed those of her parents. Once appraised of their grand daughter’s abilities, both families attack the task of bringing up this difficult child for whom the “terrible two’s” have special meaning.

The school for teens with magical powers operated by the doctors with the assistance of magical friends, successfully rescues young people who would have been shunned and instructs them in the proper uses of their powers. The teens enter a world populated with fairies, friendly dragons, pixies, centaurs, ogres and gnomes all of whom share a common enemy in the elves.

Working together, the teens, the adults and the magical creatures face their common enemy in a series of confrontations that occupy most of the book. It is only when the baby, now two years old , joins the battle that the elves are driven back.

It is a story of magic and of love. It is about dealing with mistakes and healing after tragedies. Most of all it is about the promise of the future.

About The Author:-

Bob Cherny has been a fan of science and speculative fiction since he found it in the young people's section of the library. In grade school, he devoured works by Heinlein, Norton, Azimov, and Huxley among others. By the time he had finished high school, he had read every science fiction book in the town's library.

College, and a disastrous Freshman year at Brandeis University, forced a reevaluation of reading materials. Switching majors to theater brought exposure to Shaw, Strindberg, Ibsen, Stoppard, Pinter, Shakespeare and a host of young would-be playwrights. As a technical theater major, Bob found that the quantity of material to which he was exposed often surpassed the quality. Too busy to do any writing of his own, Bob devoted his time to supporting the efforts of others.

The Vietnam War brought a tour of duty in South Carolina and the opportunity to begin graduate work at the University of South Carolina. The war ended and Bob completed his course work before migrating to Florida and the only job he could find at Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus World. Master's degrees in theater were not worth much in the aftermath of the Vietnam War.

Fortunately, through a series of unlikely coincidences, Bob landed a job as technical director of the then brand new Tupperware Convention Center. At the time, it was the only full time convention center in Central Florida. Bob would stay there for twenty years earning an MBA along the way although his work schedule left little time for either reading or writing except for articles in technical journals.

Bob's sudden departure from Tupperware provided the time to return to reading and writing. The "Stagehands" series started in this period with gracious help from the writers in the CompuServe Writers Forum. Two of the planned three volumes have been completed. Bob returned to devouring speculative fiction reading authors like David Weber, John Ringo, Anne McCaffrey, CJ Cherryh, Kim Harrison, Tom Clancy, and Clive Cussler. He started writing the five volume science fiction "Warrior" series which has recently been completed.

A short stint at Disney Event Productions introduced Bob to the power of "Pixie Dust" although it would be six more years before he would figure out how to turn it into a novel, the novel you see before you today.

Bob left Disney for Paradise Show and Design where he returned to his roots in live event technical support. He took a short detour to open the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida before returning to Paradise where he currently works. "Don't give up your day job."

Driven by boredom as much as anything else, Bob
