Imagine every character we have ever created is alive and well together in their own world. There is an economy of scale in which every Prince Charming is the same person, and every new story told about him just adds to his personality.
Sometimes that compound effect can drive a character insane.
Join Princess Sophia from Grimm’s “12 Dancing Princesses” as she is given a task by their gods to figure out what Prince Charming is up to and stop him from destroying their universe.
“Sharp, sassy, full of invention and energy, and far more than charming—intoxicating.”
--Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Egg and Spoon
“Rebecca Demarest’s Less Than Charming is a magical mash-up: part fairy tale, part mystery, part love story, the novel takes us on a dynamic ride with surprising turns, lively wit, and unforgettable characters. Above all, it’s a celebration of the art and tradition of storytelling, a winning tribute to those old tales that spark the imagination every time we tell them anew.”
--Scott Nadelson, author of Saving Stanley and Between You & Me
A voracious reader since her ‘tween years, Rebecca Demarest—who holds a MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College—has authored short fiction, much of which has been published in little magazines and campus publications.
