I write tragedy-laden beginnings, and sometimes endings, but I’m a sucker for true love and happily-ever-after. Mix that with mystery and suspense and you have a modern-day, true-to-life fairytale.
The fact of the matter is if you took all of the instances that happened to the protagonist in the fairytales Disney turned into animated movies, I don’t know that they would qualify as children’s stories.
Parentless is the main qualification, it seems. Pretty much all of them have one or no parent at all.
And often, the child watches the parent’s demise (Lion King, Bambi)
Poisoned (Snow White)
Cast out (Lion King)
Cursed (Sleeping Beauty)
Crippled—No voice, can’t walk (Little Mermaid)
Kidnapped (101 Dalmatians)
Racism (The Fox and the Hound)
Lost (Finding Nemo)
Felling unwanted (Chicken Little)
Just plain sad beginning; I cried like a baby (Up)
Wow...I know there are more, but I started to get depressed.
And that, my friends, is just one of the reasons my characters experience such tragedy—it’s what I know.
Please read on for a little about what I write...
A writer of modern-day fairytales, my stories overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
