Black Pearls, a Faerie Strand

black pearls, new cover

Fairy tales have grown up! Dark and seductive, these re-imaginings of the classic tales we all grew up with, are not for the sqeamish or the purists among us. But once you've crawled inside the heads and hearts of Cinderella's prince, Lady Godiva, Snow White's dwarf hosts, or Rapunzel's mother, you'll never feel the same about these famous folk motifs. In the hands of someone who's studied and loved them, the old tales become deeper, richer, and larger of heart than they've ever been before.
