1) What fairytale(s) have you chosen to retell and why?
Cinderella was the fairytale I chose to retell because it was perfect for the mega-rich teen boy and the girl, who rocks his world so much that he’s willing to risk all for her.
2) What makes your story unique?
It’s set in the 1980s with an interracial couple and while there is no fairy grandmother or evil step-mother, there is a grandfather determined to stop the relationship.
3) What was your favorite fairytale growing up and why?
When I was young, The Wizard of Oz was one of my favorite retellings because it was the first book I was able to read without anyone’s help.
4) Who was your favorite villain?
I don’t think I ever had a favorite villain, although if I had to choose one it would be Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast.
5) Is this a standalone or do you have more books planned?
For right now, it’s a standalone but I co-wrote The Little Mermaid retelling for the Kingdom of Fairytale after-the-after retelling. Eventually I will write more fairytale stories and create a fairytale series.
