FAIRY TALE FUN BLOG HOP (MAGIC MORSELS)

Congratulations to Katie Watkins, the Grand Prize winner of the Magic Morsels Fairy Tale Blog Hop!

  Willa Tobin, the eldest of the twin heroines in my Chick Lit novel, Twin Piques, is a little bit obsessed with the whole concept of fairy tales. She believes that good will always triumph over evil, Prince Charmings exist (although her history of dating frogs who never shed their warts belies this), and happily ever afters are possible. She's an idealist and a romantic who sees the world through rose-colored glasses much like Giselle, the eternally optimistic protagonist in Enchanted. Both of these ladies are dreamers who spend a lot of their time imagining their bright futures, which will, of course, include the perfect men.


A flair for fashion is something else these ladies have in common. Willa loves girly, retro pieces inspired by designs from the '50s and '60s which she often makes herself. Giselle also favors bright colors and  feminine embellishments, and in a pinch she can make a lovely gown from curtains. I'm sure the two of them would have a grand time shopping together, or hanging out at the park with some of their animal pals. In Andalasia, Giselle counts a variety of woodland creatures amongst her friends, and she appears to be able to summon them to her side whenever she wishes. Willa's constant companion is a scruffy dog named Cicero, and she makes her living as a pet psychic because she believes she can read the hearts and minds of animals.


Unlike her sister, pragmatic Sloane Tobin, who's a forensic accountant by trade, is about as unprincess-y as a woman can be. She loathes the color pink, scoffs at the notion of true love, and thinks a high-yield corporate bond is a better investment than a sparkly diamond (No tiaras for her!) However, she does have a fairy tale counterpart in Princess Isabella Lucia Maria Elizabetta of Valencia, the smart and spunky leading lady on ABC's Galavant.

Isabella is tough, focused, and goal-oriented. She always has a plan, just as Sloane does, and anyone who fouls things up for them can expect to be dismissed out of hand with a disdainful eye roll. Neither of these ladies would ever qualify as a damsel in distress. Isabella can wield a sword just as well as (actually, better than) any man, and Sloane is equally formidable with her sharp tongue and ability to outthink and outmaneuver everyone, be they a rival at work or in her personal life. If Isabella and Sloane's paths were to ever cross, I don't know that they'd become friends, but they'd certainly admire and respect each other's chutzpah.

  3. Do you even need to ask?!? Most likely Chris Messina (given the guy who played Eric, when I saw The Little Mermaid at a local theater, looked like him) or Justin Baldoni.
