Moxie’s Decision: A Strange World Story by Hank Quense


Moxie's Decision:

Available on Amazon

Meet Marcia Hammerhead from The Strange World Stories interviewing her creator Hank Quense.



I’m Marcia Hammerhead and I’m the Cultural Reporter for Faux News Network. Today, against my better judgement, I’ll interview an unknown scribbler of so-called novels named Hank Quense. I guess I better get on with it. Stalling will only prolong my agony.


MH: Mr Quense, what is this so-called story about?

HQ: Moxie’s Decision is a coming-of-age adventure, Maud. The title character is a teenage princess who realizes she hasn’t been trained to do anything.  She leaves her father’s castle and sets out on a quest to become self-reliant and decisive.


MH: Princess? Castle? Is this one of those ridiculous fantasy genre stories?

HQ: It is, Martha. This one is set in Camelot, but it’s not the Camelot you’ve read about. This Camelot is in a parallel universe, so don’t expect the usual legends.


MH: You said this was fantasy, but parallel universes denote sci-fi, another ridiculous genre. Did you use this parallel universe device as an excuse to deceive potential book buyers into thinking they’re buying something they really don’t want?

HQ: Not at all, Miriam. My book is an opportunity for readers to enjoy something new and different.  And my book is different.  It’s a coming of age story like no other.


MH: My name is Marcia. Why do I suspect this parallel universe is simply a device to allow you to trash all the beloved Camelot legends and tales?

HQ: Ahh, you got it, Margo. That’s exactly what I did. My Camelot is much different than the traditional Camelot.  Camelot’s main characters are in the book, but they act differently.  For instance, the Knights of the Round Table have a football team, a choir and Tristan writes plays for the knights to act out.


MH: You deserve to be flogged for this desecration. How dare you rewrite the precious and lovely legends from Camelot?

HQ: Maria, the world needs more parody stories and I’ve dedicated my life to filling that parody need.


MH: Have you ever considered writing true literature instead this genre rubbish?

HQ: True literature? Too many words, never any action. How boring. I’d rather get a job.


MH: This interview is over. I refuse to speak with a despicable genre scribbler who has no respect for tradition.

HQ: Thanks for the interview, Margaret.


MH: My name is MARCIA!

Princess Moxie (Book 2)


306 pages


Strange Worlds Publishing (October 15, 2015)

◊ Genre: Fantasy, Action,






Moxie has a plan; she’s determined to rule as
queen after her father, King Smedley, dies.


But Smedley refuses to acknowledge her as his
heir. Her uncle also wants the throne and he’s already tried once to eliminate   Moxie as competition.


           Moxie recognizes she hasn’t been trained to rule and she needs lessons about the real world. Moxie goes on a quest to learn how to rule and to learn about life outside the castle.
Moxie faces unexpected obstacles as she struggles with adventures in a brutal reality that tests her mettle and determination. 
This is a fantasy coming-of-age story that is decidedly different than the usual ones. The book is filled with satire and humor. What more can a reader wish for? 


It takes place against the backdrop of Camelot, but this isn’t the Camelot of legends.
It’s Camelot in a parallel universe where the Knights of the Round Table play
football and Guinevere coaches the team’s cheerleaders. The wizard Merlin
struggles to understand the Magic of the Mind using primitive ink-stained
diagrams and Stonehenge is a theater-in-the-round.


Moxie’srollicking adventures are the stuff of comedy. Enjoy!
