Casting a “Fairy Spell”

I started writing Fairy Spell in 2008. I stopped writing it in 2008. I started it up again in 2014. I sold it in 2014. And now I can finally announce it by sharing the Publishers Weekly announcement.

Thank you Jennifer Greene at Clarion (also publishing my upcoming nonfiction picture book about a Japanese WWII pilot’s unprecedented journey) and illustrator Eliza Wheeler for returning with me to this thrilling day of yesteryear.

From capes (Boys of Steel) to planes (Thirty Minutes Over Oregon) to wings (Fairy Spell)…these books fly. Hopefully they will also fly off the shelves. (Sorry, couldn’t not.)

Frances and the fairies, 
Cottingley, England, 1917

Yay! Congratulations to you! I'm looking forward to reading this book. Such a fascinating story. With the popularity of fairy stories, the Disney Fairies movies, and others, I'm sure people will be interested in this unusual story.
