Have you ever read a fairy tale, and wished it was a little darker? Maybe a little bit more, I don't know, gritty? Passionate? Dare I say...not so Disney?
It could be I just have a very dark imagination, but my princes aren't perfect. Not in the traditional sense at least. They're fighters and they're thieves; some make deals with the devil and some are devilish and some are alone with twelve dancing wives and not a single one to love. There are dainty fainting princesses, and princesses who know how to hold a sword better than most princes, and maybe a few princesses who aren't princesses at all. Witches, queens, evil and good, I wanted to tread the boundaries between myth and fantasy. Sometimes right is wrong and wrong is the only way to survive.
Take the journey with me. Maybe Cinderella doesn't deserve a prince. Or perhaps Rumpelstiltskin had no other choice a long, long time ago, or is it just once upon that time...

Andi Lawrencovna lives in Northeast Ohio where she was born and raised. She has spent nearly her entire life in the same area, minus the semester she spent studying abroad in England. Though she has not gone back recently, her lifelong goal is to open a pub in one of the small little towns in the Cotswold's and shear sheep in the backyard during the slow hours of the day. Or, barring that, write about a pub keep with sheep who gets abducted by trolls or enspelled by a siren. Either path works for her.
She recently finished her MFA in creative writing from a low residency program out of state. Her mad-schemes of world pub domination currently are on the back burner while she endeavors to pass on her love of literature and writing to local area writers groups and panels.
