In this fairy tale retelling, Rumpelstiltskin turns self-centered teenage princesses into well-rounded young women fit to find their One True Love--princes supplied by the Fairy Godmother. Just as a Cinderella-cycle is being completed, Rumpelstiltskin--or Rasp, as others call him--is called to pick up a new princess, the first-born daughter of a woman who Rasp had completed spinning assignments for years ago. At twenty-six, the new princess is older than any other princess he’s accepted into his training. And she knows his name.

Blending traditional Rumpelstiltskin stories from many different cultures, this short story is a delightful riff on the fairy tales that were ingrained in our culture long before Disney or the Brothers Grimm.

This is a short story of approximately 7,000 words

Her undergrad writing centered around literary fiction and poetry; she is currently focusing on her passions, Science Fiction and Fantasy in all their forms.
