…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!

I had the chance to shmooze with folks at SFWA (that’s the Science Fiction Writers of America) including some of the best publishers, editors and agents in the SFF industry. It was loud, boisterous, and included lots of familiar faces from previous cons, meetings and bibliophile events–and even one familiar friend from college!–so it was sort of like a geek extrovert’s dream come true. (There was even a drink special called the “Honey Badger!”)
The only thing missing were Ursula Vernon drawings. Ah well, maybe next year!
In New England the colors are bursting: reds, oranges and yellow-golds against green and brown and purple–it’s *amazing*! It’s tough not to be inspired by the panorama, the scent of apples and wood smoke, the crisp energy in the air. This is the last gasp of summer warmth before the winters close in and I’m inhaling every bit of it to store for the cold white months ahead.
