10 Unusual Things About Me  

in no particular order:
 

1) I used to teach preschool and college.
2) I eat ice cream out of a coffee mug.
3) I have 5 sisters (and so does my brother).
4) I sometimes put a granny smith apple slice in my bourbon.
5) My last 5 Halloween costumes (big annual party) were: Walter White, Max from Where the Wild Things Are, The Joker, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and my own, gothic version of the Mad Hatter.
6) I once kept myself from seeing the sun for 3 days - just to see what it was like.
7) I've never seen an entire episode of Star Trek, Full House, Home Improvement or Everybody Loves Raymond.
8) I'm super geeky about the "Miracle On Ice" back in 1980. I was 12.
9) I once received a private tour of the FBI Academy and planned to apply.
10) I read very, very slowly.

Tale Spins
A trilogy of alternative fairytales and retellings. Discover the real Snow White story through the eyes of Creepy, the unknown 8th dwarf! Meet a teen princess who hires "The Frog Prince" witch to get revenge on a Mean Girl at school! And learn how the giant, boy thief and magic beans tale truly went down!




Praise for Tale Spins

Not usually enamoured of either re-tellings or poetry I was totally taken aback by just how much I relished this trilogy of alternative fairytales and re-tellings aimed at the Young Adult market. ~Tracy (Goodreads)

TaleSpins was like walking into a vintage store and finding a true treasure. This book takes the fairytales we all grew up on and gives them an interesting and modernized version that I enjoyed. ~Rose (Goodreads)
