I got news last month that Transmundane Press will be publishing my take on the fairytale of the Six Swans in their After Happily Ever After anthology. Woot! I’m proud of this one.
In brief, I envisioned the modern day challenges the characters from the story might face when at last, the brothers are restored to human form after their sister frees them from a years long curse, and how spending the majority of your life as a bird complicates their relationship to their sister. Unable to truly be independent to her, due to swans’s preference to bonding for life, they all live together in a strange marriage, unable to leave. How does a husband react to such a surreal and taboo way of life?
You’ll get a chance to see in “A Sleeve of Feathers” when it comes out!
