What is a Fractured Fairy Tale?
It is a story that doesn't always end in "and they lived happily ever after." They have elements of a familiar fairy tale, but from a different point of view and the characters react differently than you might expect.

Can you resist these cute faces? If you can't, I have good news! I will have these for sale at my events. You can also order them on Etsy. I can make one to order so you can choose what color/pattern you want. Click on the photo to see the options.

'Rise of the Queen' Now Available


In a nation where women are slaves, one woman seeks the courage to change that. Without change all that women can hope for is more food, fewer beatings and death. Li knows that women can be equal, but who can she tell that would even believe her?

When a man asks her for a drink at the well, she recognizes the king by the patterns on his boots. She dares not speak, but he is the one man who could change the way women are treated. Would he understand and believe the words of a woman if she did dare speak? When the king chooses her as his wife, Li knows she must first prove to him she can do more than cook, clean, and bear children. The women need a leader as much as the men need their king.

     The fourth book in the Tales of Asculum series follows a young woman as she finds the courage to become the queen the nation needs. 'Rise of the Queen' has dragons, magic, mystery, romance and just enough sword play to make it enjoyable for all.

     The Tales of Asculum is a series of standalone young adult novels that are loved by both the young and the young at heart.
