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. The Twixt series, including INDELIBLE, INVISIBLE, INSIDIOUS and INVINCIBLE 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 Mankind.

Inspiration of the Week: Subversive Children’s Books

For some reason, I haven't been as inspired as I have been lately...but the numbness changes to anger changes to action and therefore, I was tickled to find that there was a little sample of silly subversion on my kid's shelves. I'll explain more later, but I'll just leave this here for you to go check out and see if you can spot what I mean when I say, "Whoa...!"
