Fairy tales didn’t begin as children’s stories. They were originally oral folktales thought to belong to the ‘peasant’ class, until the literary salons of the 17th Century adopted them as their own. They have been retold countless times and hundreds of years later they still resonate. They are a guide through the dark woods of life and a conversation with our mythic selves… Take another look: The witch, the wolf and the wonder await.” – Alyxandra Harvey bestselling author of Haunting Violet, Stolen Away and The Drake Chronicles vampire novels


About the Author

Alyxandra Harvey lives in an old Victorian stone house with her husband, dogs, and a few friendly ghosts. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true, except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream. She also likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.
