This collection contains a number of my own personal favorites; writing tales of empowerment is a kind of wish-fulfillment, after all. Some are humorous, some are dark, most are fantasy, a couple are science fiction, but all revolve around a main female character who overcomes obstacles (sometimes including herself) to make a better life for herself and others.
The first story is "Dragon Time": Time has stopped in Unterdrachenberg, and there is only one young woman who might have the talent to fix it. But does she have the courage?
