I'm writing fairy tales. A LOT of fairy tales and I'll be writing them very fast for my publisher StoneHouse Ink. I'll be posting the rough drafts up here as I write them, to give you all a chance to see what they're about. Then I have to take them down once they're published, be sure to read quick!
So... if you like fairy tales and magical memories, then I suggest you snuggle back in a comfy chair and enjoy! :)

I'm also a mom of 7 kids (3 of which are teens--and cute--ahem. ;) ) When i'm not chasing them, I like to write, dance, sing, act, PAINT, and direct plays. I was lucky enough to have lived in Portugal and England for almost 9 years! Right now, we're living in New Mexico and enjoying every moment of it.

NOT TAKING ANY READING REQUESTS!
The most important thing you need to know about me: I AM A CHRISTIAN
I don't read or write books that are inappropriate. So if I read a story of yours and then suddenly stop, it's because I'm not okay with certain things.
I write books that are fairytale retellings with a lot of twists. So if you are interested in anything fairytale related, go check out my work.
I am an eighteen year old high school student, who loves to read, write, watch movies and eat ice cream while listening to music. I am a huge Marvel's fan.
English isn't my mother tongue, so there might be some mistakes. Don't be afraid to point them out if you find any.
I don't own any of the pictures used on the covers!
That's all for now!
God bless you,
Hi! I'm February Grace.
I've done a few more or less interesting things in my life, not the least of which include working for Disney, getting kissed by a Klingon (it was unprovoked) and going blind, though I wouldn't personally recommend the latter. I would, however, highly recommend the doctors at the University of Michigan who helped partially restore my sight after a long series of surgeries between 2009 and 2011.
NEWS! With the closure of my publisher at the end of May 2016, the rights to my novels reverted to me as of June 1st.
I can't think of anywhere I would rather share them with the world than here, with all of you, on Wattpad.
So they're all here now: GODSPEED, OF STARDUST, (which had 1.3 million reads when it was posted here previously) IN STARLIGHT, UPON A TIME, (1 million reads and counting!) and WISHING CROSS STATION, as well as the novella EACH LITTLE SOUL. I really hope you'll find stories and characters to love among them!
Thank you, everyone, for making me feel so welcome, I truly appreciate you all.
You can find me on Twitter @FebruaryGrace

*The covers on the stories have changed of necessity, but the stories themselves are the same as the ones that were available for purchase when published.

I stumble as I sit down in the straight-backed chair, sweat pooling in my palms. I know why I'm here, and I know what they want.
"Tell us about yourself, Miss Penney."
I look for a face, but my stomach sinks as nothing but darkness greets me. I can't hold back the shiver that skitters across my skin.
"Well?" I jump, clutching my hands together as if silently praying that, even in this darkness, I'll make the right impression.
"I- I'm a writer on Wattpad."
"Is that all?"
"Isn't that enough?" I've never liked sharing my life story, and I like it even less while across from strangers I can't see.
"Enough? Silly girl, something as little as that is never enough. We want more." How much more is there to say? I'm a writer. I'm on Wattpad. It would be weird to bring up my love of David Bowie or my black cat, Jasper. "What about the rumors? Do you have a response to them?"
"The ones that say you can't keep an update schedule, that you're too busy for writing, that all you can write are fairytale retellings, and to top it off, you're incapable of writing a good about you section. Is it true?"
I pause. How can I disagree? I am busy, and sometimes that means I can't update on time, although I always feel terrible about it. But the others? My hands curl into fists.
"I'm capable of writing non-retellings and I can write a good about me section."
"I just did."

I am a busy mom of three (and an angel) with a passion for reading. Writing has always been on my "dream" list, but I have previously lacked the courage to let anyone read my work. Call me a perfectionist. But I have made a resolution this year to get out there, put something into the universe, and see what comes back.
A favorite author of mine says you must write six novels before you will write anything worth reading. With that in mind, here are my goals:
1. Write six novels and share them publicly.
--- "Glass Roses" : Available on Amazon
--- "Apple Blossoms" : First Draft (Completed)
--- "Princess of the Peas" : First Draft (Completed)
--- "Black Pearls" : First Draft (In Progress)
2. Get over my fear of sharing my work with people.
3. Conquer some small amount of my perfectionism by not stressing out over how my writing turns out during the first draft.
"Glass Roses: A Victorian Fairytale" is now officially available in both paperback and eBook formats. Here is the link to the official listing on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Glass-Roses-Britain-Kalai-Soderquist/dp/1519113692
Highest Rank Achieved: #12 in Historical Fiction on May 11th, 2015
