Hi Wattpadders! I'm a bibliophile, writer, meditation instructor, and mom to a six year old girl. Through her, I'm revisiting all the stories I grew up with...and that means plenty of Disney movies. "Ursula's Beginning" is what emerged after watching "The Little Mermaid" with my daughter. Every day. For three weeks. This was in the summer of 2016, and Ursula's backstory took me two years to produce. It is my first novel-length work.
