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.

Fierce & Fantastic Fiction

I can't wait to join absolutely fabulous fellow YA authors Kady Cross, Amalie Howard & Page Morgan to talk about world-building, characters, brain-spasms and all the great things that make up out favorite books.

I met Page *years* ago at NESCBWI and then Amalie Howard later when I joined up with Harlequin TEEN. Kady Cross and I hit it off when we were both at NEIBA promoting our books and were the last ones out. Now all four of us will be sharing our stories--and our stories about our stories--together at the Augusta Curtis Cultural Center. Come joint the magic & get a lot of signed books!

Inspiration of the Week: Painted Shoes

Have I mentioned I paint shoes?
You paint shoes?
Yes! I paint shoes!

This is where I am putting my extra energy and creativity as I muck around with the lastest WIP and share some random smiles in the face of the world's politics getting grimmer. (I like my fairy tales Grimm, not my news.) So in the meanwhile, I have been custom-painting orders of canvas shoes in various sizes and colors and geeking them out with favorite movies, books, animals, fantasy creatures, painting monkeys and narwhals and The Dark Crystal and Dr. Who, used high elfish and Gallifryean, robotic innards and steampunk gears, and all for the low, low price given what I've seen on etsy.

I dunno, it's fun! And creativity is fed in many ways.

If you have any inkling or ideas, feel free to ping me about some geeky shoes!
