That's how their tale begins...and now they are in the world!
Snow & Rose is released today, both in print *and* in audiobook.
There are a few lines from a favorite song that stuck with me through the years I was working on this:
"Out of sorrow, entire worlds have been built / Out of longing, great wonders have been willed"
Because the ingredients for this story were this: an old sorrow and an old fairy tale. And from those two things, a whole world grew.
It is the most of myself I've ever put into any one thing; in writing about these girls, the wolf-hearted and the rabbit-hearted, and what they lost, I was able to write about the history of my own heart, and my own loss. And tangle it all up in ferns and ancient trees and keys that might-or-might-not-be magic.
I hope you will like my mysterious forest. You might, especially if you like any of these things: willful sisters, mysterious woods, boy mushroom-farmers, unusual libraries, strange enchantments...
You can find it online, at your local bookstore, through my longtime friends at BuyOlympia.
I've spent so much time here, and now it belongs to all of us...
to you too, if you want.
