...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. The Twixt series, including INDELIBLE and INVISIBLE, 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 third book in the Twixt Series, INSIDIOUS: Book Three of the Twixt, is available for pre-order now!

Now that all three Twixt books are out in the world and on the shelves, this is a reminder to all librarians that you can drop me an email and request some signed bookmarks for your library that feature all the Twixt books to date: INDELIBLE, INVISIBLE and the latest, Book 3: INSIDIOUS!
Stay tuned for the fourth book, INVINCIBLE, due out in September, 2016!
Whether for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Purim or having fun at kids' parties, I always find inspiration and expression when decorating faces that are inspirational and expressive! My kids, my friends, my family and perfect strangers teach me to look at people--*really look*--as if seeing them for the first time, noticing how their smiles change their face, crinkle the eyes, show teeth, spread lips, bunch cheeks, raise brows, change the jaw...the paint can over-emphasize or hide the smallest hints of detail, the nuances of expression silence or shout, and people can change behind a mask even when it's painted on the surface of their skin.
Really, there is something amazing about the transformation with a little lick of facepaint!
