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

Born and raised in the Free Territories, Magnolia Lee Winthrop, prefers the company of trees and nature to spending time with most people. Although she's not much of a talker, she's got plenty of strong opinions about life and how it should be lived, just like her mother and grandmother.

After the settlement's forest farm is burned to the ground, Magnolia's life can never be the same. To cope with her grief, she'll have to leave behind everything she's ever known and loved for a hard journey through a foreign, paved, and abandoned world.

The Tree Hugger is a dystopian retelling of Han's Christian Andersen's "The Dryad."

The Girl Who Believed in Fairy Tales is a prelude to the Once Upon a Time Today collection and includes the three short stories:

"The Girl Who Watched for Elves"

"The Girl Who Dreamed of Red Shoes"

"The Girl Who Couldn't Sing"
