Welcome to the online home of Susan Badaracco- fantasy author and self-proclaimed expert on unicorns. The real ones. Not the frolicking, cuddly, rainbow-hued cartoon version. These warriors are gallant defenders and they've taken an Oath to protect their wards. Against man or beast. (the later can be especially daunting) I spin tales of hope, friendship, resilience and adventure. There's a few belly laughs, and you might shed a tear or two.

The second book of the Nine Jewels series is here!
As historian for the unicorns, Gideon is being held responsible for an event that happened centuries ago—the disappearance of nine jewels from Mughal Akbar’s court. But how is Gideon supposed to know which jewels? Or where to even start the search? Ashton’s already lost her parents and the idea of losing anyone else puts her ablaze with fear. She’s determined to follow Gideon in his hunt, even if it means putting her own life at risk. Can she take the heat when even Egorn, her unicorn protector, can’t save her? Along the way, Meera and Zara draw the attention of another jinn. That can’t be good. There’s diamond dust, a strange man who claims to be an expert at finding things, flaky pastries, and a woman trying to save the world. Time to get crackin’
The Nine Jewels series is off to a great start! Captivating kids, enchanting adults.
