You never know where they're going to end up."
You've heard from the heroes. You've pitied the princesses. Now, the villains are finally speaking out.
Seven authors. Seven fairy tales...all told from the villain’s perspective.
Discover the truth of these familiar fairy tales from the antagonists of The Snow Queen, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks, Snow White, Cinderella, The Princess and the Pea, and The Wizard of Oz.
Nine thousand years ago in Folklaria, a spiritual land filled with magic and wonder, a prophecy was set forth to restore peace after a gargantuan force took over with wicked energy. The Chronicles of Folklaria is the story of this prophecy playing out.
June’s reality had been flipped upside down. Her sister, January had vanished. But, she was not just gone...her entire existence had been put in the flames. No one had even a glimpse of a memory of January...except for June.
Frightened, confused, and feeling like her world had come crashing down on her all at once, June bolted from her house in a panic and stumbled upon a woman. Someone who knew exactly where her sister was and had been willing take her there: June never could have predicted that saving her sister would mean venturing off to an enchanted land. Magic? June could not wrap her mind around it, but she had no other choice. The one person who actually believed her and knew that she was not crazy was going to have to be the one person June put her trust in. A complete stranger.
Upon arriving to this enchanted and spiritually-enlightening land, June discovered that she was not who she thought she was. In fact, everything June has known about herself had been an illusion. A distraction from her true self. A diabolical plan to keep her from her true destiny.
June may have thought her life had become mad as a March hare, but little did she know, this was only beginning of a long and life-altering journey in Folklaria.

June fought the intense shaking of her body to rise to her feet. “No,” she said out loud. “I will not let fear win. Fear is not real.”
June stood with her feet planted firmly on the ground and paced her rapid breathing down to slow and steady breaths. She closed her eyes as she waited for her body to relax.
Finally, after she stopped sweating, she plopped down to her rear end and straightened her posture. June pictured her heart beating slower and slower and her muscles began relaxing.
The cool blades of grass blowing against her legs reminded her of the meditation experience she had at the festival. It made her feel safe. Guarded. Connected. She laid back to feel the protective grass against her back. She enjoyed the feeling so much that she hiked up her shirt to allow more of her skin to feel the dewy grass. Upon opening her eyes, she noticed the entrancing trees in front of the starry backdrop. A stream of translucent blue swam from the tree to her body and all the way up to the starry sky. June could not take her eyes off the stream of color. She gazed upon it so deeply that she did not even feel herself slip into a state of meditation.
