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 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!

Inspiration of the Week: Ursula Vernon

I bought myself a present: a couple of Ursula Vernon prints from Red Wombat and I am SO HAPPY I COULD CRY! These coveted works of art have been on my Wish List and as a reward for turning in my edits for the third Twixt book, I decided to stop waiting for someone else to get them for me and get them for *myself!*

If you click on the website and browse around, I bet you’ll see why Ursula has such a following–her beautiful paints and quirky sense of humor shine through everything from her depictions of animals in steampunk, as saints, sinners, angels, explorers, vivid Southwest depictions, funny and cute Cthulhus and anthropomorphic rabbits as well as my all-time favorite Battle-Hamsters of the North. There are things beautiful, hilarious, fun and bizarre. (Note to the newbies: her descriptions are half the fun!)

Seriously, check ‘em out.

And did you know she wrote and illustrated the Dragonbreath books? Well, she did!
