The Girl Who Believed in Fairy Tales

Prelude, Once Upon a Time Today - Three Short Stories

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Heather Baker believes in fairy tales, and she turns to their timeless wisdom whenever life gets difficult. Again and again, the playfulness, symbolism, and deeper meaning in fairy tales have filled Heather with hope, nurtured her spirit, and fired her imagination. Sometimes touching, and sometimes humorous, these loosely biographical tales capture three transformative experiences in her life.

Heather takes a poignant journey with a tarot reader that awakens her to a sense life's magic in "The Girl Who Watched for Elves".

She grapples with desire and takes the first steps in creating a life imbued with meaning in "The Girl Who Dreamed of Red Shoes".

She follows her heart and finds her place in the world in "The Girl Who Couldn't Sing".

The Girl Who Believed in Fairy Tales is a prelude to Once Upon a Time Today, a collection of contemporary fairy tale retellings for those who have already left home.
