Accidental shaman Rothschild (“Ro”) Parker has a lot of problems on her hands. Her best friend Simon just woke up from a ten year coma she may have caused, her spiritual guide is a 300 year old magpie, and the planet’s just been taken over by a group of aliens who hot-rod around eating anyone who stands still long enough to be a meal. Besides, she’s got a dead cat to bury.
In Owl Stretching, Ro has to juggle her guilt for Simon’s lost decade with her desire for spiritual and sexual exploration, a looming alien invasion and the growing suspicion that she’s about to re-enact the Descent of Inanna. Worse yet, her spiritual guide tells her she’s going to have to become a leader of the resistance. What resistance?! If guns and lasers prove useless against these invaders, what good will a steady drum beat do? All Ro really wants is a nice cup of tea. Combining mordant humour with mythic exploration, Owl Stretching shows that the inner worlds are every bit as mysterious—and dangerous—as the far reaches of the cosmos.
“Laity is a very remarkable sorceress indeed.”

“Laity’s storytelling is magic in itself. The language is beautiful
and weaves vivid pictures for the reader’s imagination.”
~ Matrifocus Magazine on Pelzmantel
Pagan & Pen:
“K. A. Laity is a wonderful storyteller. She does a great job of
immersing the reader into the world that she has built. I truly
enjoyed losing myself in the lives of these characters making me feel
like a young child again listening to the fantastical bedtime Fairy
tales of witches and castles and dreaming of being a Princess myself.”
