The Unfairy Tale - Audrey's Turn is an interactive work. Readers are invited to share comments, critiques, and suggestions. CAUTION: If you haven't finished reading the first book, resist the urge to peek at the excerpts on this blog - it will ruin the surprise! New to blogging? The first chapter excerpt is the oldest post - so start at the bottom and work your way up.

Note to readers: Beginning Saturday, April 13, 2013, the posts will be removed one by one, beginning with Chapter One - Excerpt 1. We are hoping to work with classrooms to create their own Sequel, using just the outline of the the UnFairy Tale Two.

If you are a middle school teacher (or student!) and would like to participate, check the email link through this Blog or

Writer's Digest Judge's Commentary

Last year, I submitted The UnFairy Tale to a Writer's Digest contest. I'm proud to announce that The UnFairy Tale was rated 5 out of 5 in Character Development and Plot (and other categories, but those are my favorites).  The judge had this to say:

"Humor is the strength of this novel . . .   The dialogue is lively and comic . . . .  The prose is exuberant, appealingly happy about its own inventiveness.  It's wonderfully entertaining, but it's also instructive in showing how the imagination thrives on vivid details and a love of surprises . . . .  The ending . . . is funny and satisfying."
