...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 and INSIDIOUS 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 latest book in the Twixt Series, INVINCIBLE: Book Four of the Twixt, is available for pre-order now!

I had a great time during Barnes & Noble's first ever Teen Book Festival "B-Fest" this past weekend! Even torrential rains and weekend sales filling the parking lots couldn't keep readers away from the gobs of promotional giveaways, sneak peeks, Twitter pic contests and pretty swag at the balloon-festooned tables and I got to talk books with other bibliophiles whilst signing copies of the first three books of the Twixt and promises of returning for Book 4, coming soon!
(See that? I used "whilst!")
For anyone interested, signed copies of INDELIBLE, INVISIBLE & INSIDIOUS are still available at the Enfield Barnes & Noble, available for purchase now and all set to get ready for INVINCIBLE, due out July 26th!
Ever since visiting Chicago's Botanic Gardens, I've become obsessed with watching the flowers bloom, the colors burst as summer stretches out its lazy arms and embraces the whole of the green, waiting world. The air is filled with pollen and I'm popping Claritin like popcorn, but seeing life pour out of the quiet buds makes it all worthwhile.
And, of course, my ruby-throated phoenix cover for my latest book launches in just 8 weeks!!!
