MOTLEY TALES: COLLECTION 1.
Six gripping short works aimed at readers short on time, but big on sinking their teeth into a good story... serves up a twisted concoction of greed, desperation, fear and love in the lives of people in tough situations making tougher choices.
Meet off-world ice climbers who wrestle between granting an ugly mercy or saving their own lives and a cursed aristocrat whose chance at freedom begets consequences intolerable to his station.
See what happens to a sweet sixteen alternative-prom goer whose much anticipated time-of-her-life turns into the scare-of-her-life, and a 22nd century female boxer forced to represent her tribe in ruthless matches, but desperate to cling to her humanity.
Unnerved by an enigmatic Mr. Right, follow a single woman who tries to throw him back, and witness the pain of an abandoned Black girl struggling with the specter of being alone in 1952.

Sonja Hazzard is a former Technical Writer and Editor who has toiled away the past fifteen years in the Communications and Engineering divisions of various technology and telecommunication companies in California.

Since then, she's continued her journey by becoming an active member of the mystery writer literary guild, Capitol Crimes -- the Sacramento Chapter of the national organization Sisters in Crime; the California Writer's Club, and the ZICA Creative Arts and Literary Guild. She published her first book, Motley Tales: Collection 1, in the summer of 2011; garnering five star reviews for her debut work.

"Five Stars! Motley Tales is a must have for any serious fantasy reader. Sonja Hazzard's collection of short stories set in earth's not so distant past, off world, and in the reader's deepest thoughts are brilliant in their description of beings of color with feelings such as you and I." - Patricia E.
