Cheryl Mahoney is a fantasy writer, living in California and dreaming of fairylands. She can't remember when she began her love affair with stories, and never goes anywhere (including the grocery store) without a book and a pen. Besides novels, she also writes a book review blog, Tales of the Marvelous (http://marveloustales.com), and is on Goodreads (MarvelousTales) and Twitter (@MarvelousTales). She has been previously published in The Ignatian, and has completed NaNoWriMo twice.
Cheryl has looked for faeries in Kensington Gardens, considers Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness Quartet to be life-changing, and has read pretty much everything L. M. Montgomery ever wrote.
Tarragon isn't your typical fairy, and when he gets involved in familiar fairy tales, it's not to help the characters you typically see. Tarry is more interested in a goatherd in love with a kitchen maid in Sleeping Beauty's castle, or in the girl who mistakenly fits into Cinderella's slipper--all those people the typical Good Fairies pay no attention to at all.
The Storyteller and Her Sisters is set in a world inspired by fairy tales--but with a bit of a twist! You might know a story about twelve princesses who danced every night with twelve princes, and wore out their shoes in the process. Lyra is one of those princesses--but you'll find her version of the story a bit different than you expect!
