Of Witches & Wolves
New Tales from Old Traditions
In a mix of original stories and reimagined classics, T.R. North weaves threads of old fairy tales into a new tapestry of unconventional happy endings. From the story of a headstrong girl who marries a bear, to the tale of a woodcarver, her transgender daughter, and a cursed prince, OF WITCHES & WOLVES delivers happy endings marked by transformation, practicality, and choice. At turns playfully sharp and quietly tender, this collection celebrates the stories we grew up with while exploring what they mean to us now.
About the Author
T.R. North was born and raised in Florida, which has been scientifically demonstrated to ruin a person for any other state. Her short works in science fiction and fantasy can be found in numerous anthologies and journals, and now in this chapbook, which is the product of a lifelong love of fairy tales, myths, and folklore. A long time ago, when the world was young, she earned a bachelor’s degree in classics from New College of Florida on the strength of a passion for history, mythology, and the strange blend of the two that passed for non-fiction in the ancient world. She’s spent the years since haunting the cheapseats and backroads of southwest Florida, slowly accumulating interests and hobbies that can only distract from writing for so long before they start informing it.
