The original fairy tales, I mean the really original ones
before Disney got hold of them and molded them into happy singing animals, were
more like horror stories with a message. The fables were meant to teach us
lessons that would help guide us into becoming the perfect human being.
Obviously it hasn't worked yet so I thought I'd take a crack at it.
I started writing fairy tales to tie into my
second full length novel, Stiltskin. As the story is set in a world populated
by diverse versions of fairy tale characters it made sense to create new fables
for a new generation with their very own lessons and horrors.
