1) What fairytale(s) have you chosen to retell and why?
The Dragon Princess is Sleeping Beauty (with a subtle dash of Frozen)
The Siren Princess is Little Mermaid (with a blend of Peter Pan)
The Beast Princess is Beauty and the Beast
Book 4 is Snow White (coming summer 2020)
Book 5 isn’t really a retelling in the typical sense, but follows the villain throughout the series (coming fall 2020)
2) What makes your story unique?
My fairytales aren’t typical retellings the way others see a retelling, which is why I say “reimagined” on my covers. For example, with Sleeping Beauty, the princess (Elisa) is the dragon, the prince has narcolepsy, and her and her sisters are based on the three fairies.
In Siren Princess, Odette is the Ariel character, but she’s a pirate with a love/hate relationship with James Hook. Scuttle is her BFF, and so on.
3) What was your favorite fairytale growing up and why?
Does “The Hobbit” count? Haha My favorite is Beauty and the Beast because it’s the first story I had hear where the prince and princess actually fell in love. Bell was the first strong Disney princess I had seen (and she wasn’t even a princess until she married him!).
4) Who was your favorite villain?
If we’re sticking with Disney villains, I adore Hades. If you want to be technical with Marvel now being Disney, Loki. But from fairytales I like the witch from Snow White.
5) Is this a standalone or do you have more books planned?
As you saw above, The Forgotten Kingdom Series has 5 total books (book 4 will hopefully release in June, book 5 hopefully August).
