When I came up with the idea of making the heroines of my trilogy [THE WISH LIST (May 2010); AS YOU WISH (April 2011); Book three (as yet untitled; March 2012)] fairy godmothers, the fairy tales I loved as a child and an adult immediately jumped into my mind. I studied German in college and took a class on the Märchen in graduate school, learning about the Bothers Grimm. Heck, I even spent a year at Georg August University in Gottingen, where the brothers were once professors. I have read the stories in English and German—multiple times in both languages—and even in Hungarian. I love the stories; it may have skewed my view of the world a little, but I have always loved tales of magic, good deeds, evil stepmothers (Sorry, all you stepmoms out there—don’t mean to perpetuate the myth), talking animals, and morality.
In the magical world, a TIME OF TRANSITION occurs every seventy years. Old Council members step down and new ones are chosen; but the biggest change is the appointment of the new Fairy Godmothers. Unlike their role in storybooks, Fairy Godmothers protect the barrier between the magical and the human world.
Three new godmothers discover their destinies in this three book series. Only this time the Transition won’t be smooth
When Kristin Montgomery discovers her three aunts are fairy godmothers and she's next in line for the job, her uncomplicated life disappears like magic. No, not like magic; it is magic. Kristin not only has to deal with burgeoning magical powers, but also a reluctant arbiter, a selfish sprite, and a suave French sorcerer. It’s bad enough there are no books or classes she can take to learn magic, but someone is out to take over the Arcani world. Kristin has to trust her heart and her instincts to keep herself and the ones she loves out of danger.
