In Undercover Gorgon, Naquin shines the spotlight on the agency’s gorgon receptionist, Patrice. This previously published short story is now the #0 episode in an ongoing miniseries that takes a look at the woman behind the headsnakes and mirrored sunglasses.
Patrice has never been comfortable in her own skin. At midnight on her twentieth birthday, her magical Stealth Insurance lapses, leaving her with a headful of live snakes and an aversion to bright light. Now she understands why being human never felt quite right.
Finally in the green skin the gods intended for her, Patrice moves into her new life as a receptionist at the Mt. Olympus Employment Agency. The day job sucks. But sometimes, a problem comes across Patrice’s desk she believes only she can solve. After hours, the magical items in the offices upstairs are left hanging on the walls unused. Who’s going to notice if she borrows a pair of winged sneakers, an arrow tipped with love dust, or a pair of enchanted scissors?
Everything will work out fine—as long as she doesn’t get caught.
