Let’s face it, the world is a crazy place right now. And as the globe seems to tip on its axis, I find myself wanting to escape into lighter fare than what I typically write.
Which is why I’ve chosen a fairy tale retelling for my next work in progress. I’ll be falling into the world of Luna Goldenbelle, a faerie godmother-in-training, who is given the chance to get the young shoemaker the prince has his eye on to the ball. If she fails, she’ll forever lose her opportunity to prove herself as worthy of the Goldenbelle name. Even worse, if the faerie godmothers fail to help the prince land his intended, the kingdom could be plundered into darkness.
That’s the rough idea. I’m in the world-building stage right now…more to come. But I’m so excited. I’m already enjoying the escapism from the world of viruses and pandemics.
