“A…resonant tale set late in the 13th century…with unexpected plot twists. An engaging story of revenge.” - Publisher’s Weekly
“Really great story. Strong emotion injected into almost every page.” -The Vine Review
“…a unique twist on the Grimm’s fairy tales. Part fairy tale retelling, part historical fiction…. The Fairytale Keeper is a story of corruption...” -Copperfield Review

Adelaide’s mother, Katrina, was the finest storyteller in Cologne, but she left one story untold—that of her daughter, Snow White. The fever claimed Adelaide’s mother like a thousand others in Cologne where the dead are dumped in a vast pit outside the city walls. In an effort to save Katrina’s soul, Adelaide’s father obtains a secret funeral by bribing the parish priest, Father Soren.
Soren commits an unforgivable atrocity, pushing Adelaide toward vengeance. But corruption in Cologne reaches far beyond Soren to the empire’s kingmaker. The cost of settling scores quickly escalates. Avenging the mother she lost may cost Adelaide everything she has left.

Seamlessly weaving historical events and Grimm’s fairy tales into a tale of corruption, The Fairytale Keeper, leaves the reader wondering where fact ends and fiction begins. The novel paints Medieval Cologne accurately and vividly. The story develops a set of dynamic characters, casting the famous villains, heroes, and damsels of Grimm’s fairy tales into believable medieval lives. Though historically set, The Fairytale Keeper brims with timeless themes of love, loyalty, and the struggle for justice.

The Fairytale Keeper was a Quarter-Finalist in Amazon's 2013 Breakthrough Novel Contest.
