Maya Turns 6!

I don't know when it happened, but my little baby girl became a lovely, spunky, clever, charming, helpful 6 year old! We celebrated in style with a princess party, of course! Then we got all dolled up in our finest and went to see the new Cinderella movie. What a sweet girl she is growing up to be, and I am so fortunate to be her mama!

Book Review and Author Spotlight: Christine Haggerty

I am so excited to feature an author friend of mine on the blog today, Christine Haggerty! I have had the pleasure of designing the covers for Christine's new series, The Grimm Chronicles. And her first novella in the series , Pretty Things, A Robber Bridegroom Tale, is out right now! You can purchase it on Amazon for only $.99 HERE.

______________________________

When Maddie's father catches her with a boy, he hauls her into town
in a pig wagon and finds her a husband. But Peter's cabin in the woods
promises something very different than Maddie's happily ever after.

Pretty Things, a retelling of "The Robber Bridegroom," is the first novella
in the Grimm Chronicles series. Warning: not your granny's fairytales!

I LOVED this story. I am a fan of all things fairy tale, especially when they are new takes on the classics. Here is my official review:

Christine Haggerty has expertly crafted a wonderful retelling of a time-honored cautionary tale. I read this in one sitting, in the darkness of a midnight bedroom, and just about leapt out of my skin. Haggerty's sense of timing and bone-chilling suspense are packaged perfectly in a well-paced and satisfying version of the classic Robber Bridegroom tale. Pretty Things has shades of Where are you going, where have you been by Joyce Carol Oates, interlaced with all of the raw and original horror of a true Grimm "fairy tale." I can't wait for the upcoming installments in The Grimm Chronicles!


 Christine Haggerty, Author of The Grimm Chronicles


Christine Nielson Haggerty grew up in rural Utah with three brothers, a sister, several chickens, a goat, and an outhouse. She always loved the escape of fantasy and the art of writing, and her passion for life is to craft stories of strength and survival.

As a former high school language arts teacher and a black belt in karate, Christine has found a niche in combining those skills to help authors write effective fight scenes.

An award-winning young adult author, she is now launching her dark fantasy fairytale novella series The Grimm Chronicles.
