- Transformation into a frog/toad. (In my Eileen's case she drops her transformed victims into the middle of a heron colony. She has never had a problem with beings managing to get themselves restored and then coming after her. Herons are always hungry. And they love frogs!).

I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems.
