Brandie June will be my very first guest on the All By My Shelf podcast. And you can ask her a question. Just become a supporter for as little as $5 a month.
Growing up, I spent most of my time either reading or on stage. I initially moved to Los Angeles to be an actor and studied theatre at UCLA. I later branched out into costume design, playwriting and eventually to writing novels. Writing is now my primary passion. I love storytelling in all sorts of formats and spend my days marketing animated movies and my evenings writing fantasy novels. I am fascinated with the history of mythology, and many of my stories have some basis in myths or classic fairytales.
I devour books, especially of the audio variety, as commuting in Los Angeles means lot of time in the car. My GoodReads yearly reading goal is 65. When not writing, I can often be found in dancing, playing board games, finding a reason to wear a costume, and providing my puppies with many belly rubs.
If Nor can’t spin gold, she can always spin lies.
When seventeen-year-old Nor rescues a captured faerie in the woods, he gifts her with a magical golden thread she can use to summon him for a favor. Instead, Nor uses it for a con—to convince villagers to buy straw that can be transformed into gold. Her trick works a little too well, attracting the suspicion of Prince Casper, who hates nobody more than a liar. Intent on punishing Nor, he demands that she spin a room of straw into gold and as her reward, he will marry her. Should she refuse or fail, the consequences will be dire.
