...there was a headstrong fairy princess and a frog with an axe.
But that's another story.
My name is Dawn Metcalf and I write dark, quirky and sometimes humorous speculative fiction. My debut novel, LUMINOUS, is a YA paranormal fantasy about a Latina-American superheroine who can change her skin and my current novel, INDELIBLE: Book One of the Twixt, is just your average fairy tale about a guy and a girl, a deadly mistake, a number of sharp, pointy objects and a plot to end the Age of Man. The second book in the Twixt Series, INVISIBLE: Book Two of the Twixt, is in stores now!
Want to know more? Go here.
Another great event at Barnes & Noble means that there are signed copies of both INDELIBLE and INVISIBLE at the Buckland Hills mall location in Manchester, CT! Get a jump start on the series because Book 3, INSIDIOUS, is due out in July. (4 months! Wow!)
Signed copies of INDELIBLE are also available at The Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, Massachusetts, because I wouldn't want my northern neighbors to go without. ;-)
My daughter loves musicals and theater and costuming. She loves the panoply of it, how music stirs her, how characters come to life--it's something I'm glad to have shared with her, my love of the theater.
So when it came time for the Talent Show at school, my little Jewish mad scientist chose this song because she loved the sounds, the words and the message. We've had some amazing talks about it and why this resonated with her far more than "traditional" female characters like Nala or any of the Disney princesses. It's interesting to hear it now having heard it through her...ears.
