Once Upon A Time…

...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 saves people from dying before their time. The Twixt series, including INDELIBLE, INVISIBLE, INSIDIOUS and INVINCIBLE is just your average fairy tale about a guy, a girl, a deadly mistake, a number of sharp, pointy objects and a plot to end the Age of Mankind.

The Storyteller’s Cottage

The Storyteller's Cottage is a quaint little Victorian house in the middle of Fiddler's Green in Simsbury, Connecticut, but it's also the center of all things bookish! Across from the library (of course), The Storyteller's Cottage is full of themed rooms that host everything from writer's workshops, book groups and fan gatherings to theme nights, gaming and mystery/escape rooms. I wandered around just soaking in the ambiance while people were quietly writing and reading, perusing the shelves and snacking on chocolates. Really, it's a fantasy fan's dream!

And on Sunday, Feb. 25th, The Book Fairy is coming to The Storyteller's Cottage! (Would-be-writers of all ages do NOT want to miss this!)

Inspiration of the Week: The Shape of Water

Okay, so this inspiration has been here for more than a week, but it's because I *just* watched it again with my parents and fell in love with it all over again, able to tease out things I specifically adored from how water was shown in o many ways (playful, comforting, erotic, life-giving, mysterious, ominous, hopeful, etc.) to how colors were used from the green palette being everywhere to the subtleness of reds coming into her life as the main character became more loving and sensually/sexually aware (esp. compared to the cool, flat colors of the antagonist and his home life--even his injuries were finally less red and more black/rotted).

So, yeah, still here because yeah, still inspired!
