About the Book

A Dreadful Fairy Book focuses on Shade, a grumpy, bookish sprite who would rather spend her time inside reading than flying, playing acorn-toss, or engaging in Grand Projects like her fellow sprites of Pleasant Hollow.

When her house burns down, she reluctantly goes on a quest to find a possibly mythic library. Along the way, she meets and/or teams up with a variety of misfit fairies, including a dandy troll who refuses to live under bridges, a questing beast who doesn’t like to be chased, a card-sharping brownie who doesn’t do housework, and a mute, kleptomaniacal pixie.

If readers have half as much fun reading it as I did writing it…well, that might lead to some negative reviews and poor sales, now that I think of it. Let’s just say that I had a blast writing it, and I can’t wait for people to have the chance to enjoy it themselves.
