My senior year in college I needed to fill a hole in my schedule. On a whim I took a literature class about Fairy Tales. It turned out to be the best class I took in the whole 4 years I was there. We studied the Grimms and Hans Christian Anderson, of course, but we also studied the beautiful artistic tales written during the Romance Era. I fell in love with the symbolism and structure of the stories. Having always been a fan of fantasy anyway, I decided to start writing some of my own. I wrote 5 novellas. One of them was published, but the rest were too long for any magazine and too shore to be books. I tried bundling them up as an anthology, but there isn't really a market for something like that. So... I thought I'd try putting them here. I know they aren't your average romance stories or high fantasy, but for people who like a love story mixed with a little magic or a princess tale with a touch of adventure they are a change of pace from the ordinary. I'd love to know what you think.
My first YA novel, Cry of the Sea (not a fairy tale) was published by Fire and Ice Young Adult Books last year. Earlier this year, my YA romance novella Passing Notes was published as well. I also have a short story about a female pirate captainan anthology titled A Tall Ship, A Sail and Plunder. www.dgdriver.com
