Once Upon a Time Today is a collection of modern fairy tale retellings for those who have already left home.

After her drug-addicted mother dies, Miriam is placed in a convent by social services. For awhile, the sheltered existence is her haven. However, the day she comes across an employment ad for a caretaker in a local paper, the safety of her sanctuary begins to stifle.

Like Miriam, Gertrude was an orphan. Now she's the sea witch. A long time ago, she saved the mer kingdom from extinction. As payment, she demanded the service of the mer king's second son-and every second son thereafter.

Cole is the third second son to serve the sea witch. He would do anything to return to the sea.

Dreaming of the Sea is a retelling of Han's Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid."
