Fairy Tale came to me randomly while driving to work one day while I was living in Arizona. There were a few influences, like I wanted my lead to be tall (I’m 6 ft), family friends of mine had recently suffered a tragedy, and I wanted to tell the story of a different type of fantasy character (the Twilight vampire phenomenon was going into full effect) one that has been sort of overlooked, except at Disney — the fairy.
Hence, Morgan was born, named for Morgan le Fay of Arthurian legend, and the possible origin for the fairy myth. I loved this idea so much that I have been inclined to write a sequel with more ideas for a trilogy. I’ve written a novel based on the first screenplay, and have a grandiose plan to create a compendium of the fairy world and the magical creatures that live within it. I have a few other ideas, but I’ll leave it at that for the moment.
When war breaks out in her homeland, a fairy princess is hidden among humans without any knowledge of her true identity. Upon learning that she is the only hope to a people torn apart by a tyrant’s twisted beliefs, and that she’s falling in love with the tyrant’s son, destiny proves to be a heavy burden.
Snippet: Morgan is like most high school seniors except that she’s hiding a big secret. She has wings, beautiful, color-infused wings. Left in the hands of her human family at infancy, Morgan is now part of a world that she doesn’t fit into and without any knowledge of who or what she really is.
Then she meets another, one who can answer not only all her questions, but also set her on the path to her true destiny. A whole new world opens up for Morgan; a world that has only ever existed in the imagination, a world full of promise…a world that needs saving, and Morgan is the key.
