A few weeks ago, I asked, “What’s your favorite fantasy creature?” The responses started trickling in, and I’ve collected and determined the results.
It’s been a little longer getting this post written. Chaos comes with the holidays – going to events with family and friends, preparing the house for visitors, making sure all of the presents are wrapped, which I forgot to do for my partner, Kat, realizing it when we began gathering gifts for the exchange…
…and then there was preparing for the family Rottweiler’s first trip to visit my home, which is owned by three very territorial felines.
It’s been a bit chaotic, but in a good way.
Now, I’m catching up.
The results were wide ranged. I expected to see a lot of responses including dragons, unicorns, and vampires, probably the most widely used fantasy creatures – in my experience.
With the exception of one of those creatures, the results were vastly different.

and Giant Spiders.
My favorites are brownies and gargoyles. Both are represented by characters in my Fae Awakening series.
If you are interested in reading about brownies, you can find more info in the What is Bonnie? post from earlier this month.
My email list and social media reach are growing fast. Once I hit a larger number, maybe in six months, I’ll rerun this poll and see if the results change.
Until then, happy reading! And happy holidays!

Tharmit the marmot beared no resemblance to a marmot. The stocky dwarf walked into the gas station, shoving a frail human to the side. His bulky armor clanged through the aisle. Passing an end cap full of chips, the battle-axe hanging at his side caught the edges, tearing the bags
Kevin jumped into the air, swinging his leg in a perfect roundhouse kick. He boxed an invisible, imaginary specter, a memory of his friends standing in front of him. As he calmed himself with a slow breathing exercise, he turned to the darkened room with a light hanging from a

Despite being into witchy things, Sarah never expected the malicious creature to raise its head from underneath. A few days ago, it reached out
