Our Absolutely Wild! Faerie’s Tales and portals are on display during November 2017 in the Birt’s Bistro gift shop in Surprise, AZ. You’ll discover faerie portal note cards, magnets, our coloring book with writing prompts, and Song of the Ocarina, book 1 in the Delfaerune Rhapsody series—my fantasy novel that inspired it all.
Sculptor Cherie Scott, my business partner, hand created every original numbered and signed piece. You’ll discover themes like Halloween, autumn, and Christmas; plus books, s’mores, and Trufaela trees.
I wrote all the Faerie’s Tales and the novel, and illustrated the faerie portal coloring book and the coloring note cards, and other fantastical whimsy, including a few fractured Faerie’s Tales. (In one, Cinderella breaks free from Grimm’s and is running around placing one shoe on each eligible bachelor’s doorstep, trying to find a better life.} Delightful and whimsical, trust me.
I also promise Birt’s will surprise you. It’s worth a stop in to shop, browse the book store, and enjoy a scrumptious lunch—their chef is amazing. You’ll find Birt’s at 16752 N. Greasewood St. Surprise, Ariz., 623-584-0065. It’s open seven days a week, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. with Happy Hour on Fridays only from 5 –7 p.m.
