About the Author

Laurel Decher lives on the outskirts of a mid-sized city in Germany, between a medieval chapel on the St. James' Way and a boundary marker tree carved with a scary face. It's a little surprising, since she expected to live in Vermont for the rest of her life. You just never know when adventure will call!

I absolutely loved the inventive but nameless princess from the start, and as the plot unfolded in a series of wacky, magical events, I fell in love with the entire Cochem Kingdom--where the Dungeon Master is of course hospitable, the palace librarian wise and helpful, and the parsnip fries always hot and delicious! So many funny and lovely elements to this book! Truly one of the most original fairy tales I've read in a long, long time. And (spoiler alert) with a MOST satisfying ending.
