My name is Stephanie Barnes and I love writing stories.
Since leaving school, I spend most of my free time working on film scripts and short stories. When it comes to film scripts I'm drawn towards writing children's feature animation and horror films, two genres that should never be next to each other. My children's animation script was a quarterfinalist in the ScreenCraft Fellowship Competition and was a second rounder in the Austin Film Festival's Screenwriting Competition.
With short stories, I'm obsessed with writing fairy tales and dark stories. I was shortlisted in the Writing Magazine's Adult Fairy Tale competition 2015.
I'm one of the Two Sisters who created Dark & Darker Faerie Tales.
Inspired by Brothers Grimm and other sinister tales, Dark & Darker Faerie Tales is a collection of dark stories about evil faeries, corrupted heroes, vengeful innocents and malicious monsters. Delving into the darker side of fairy tales, each story offers a twisted journey that’ll make you wish for a happy ending.
