I’m not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That’s what I WANT them to think. Because then they won’t suspect what I’m really up to.
The ball, the prince – it’s all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can’t see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.
They’re about to find out.

This book has all the elements of the classic Cinderella story: the wicked stepsisters, the fairy godmother, the glass slipper, the charming prince. But it’s all told by an evil Cinderella who’s determined to be the next queen. If you like fractured fairy tale retellings, this is a fast and entertaining read. Very popular with teens and young adults but also a good fairy tale for adults and anyone who likes dark fantasy. Sinful Cinderella is the first book in The Dark Fairy Tale Queen Series, followed by Sneaky Snow White and Rotten Rapunzel! I hope you enjoy these “Grimm” fairy tales retold from a darker point of view.

I’ve sometimes wondered about Cinderella. How could she stay so sweet and cheerful when she gets nothing but abuse from her family? I think even the most good-natured person would become bitter and vindictive after a while. In this story, I wanted to show a more wounded side of Cinderella, the side that is hurting from being unloved. Love brings out the best in people, but hate brings out the worst.
So… about me: I live near Poughkeepsie, New York with my husband, three boys, and no pets. I have a hard time getting my boys to stop playing video games and read more books. My house is often a mess because I’m either out at my day job, or helping my kids with homework, or trying to squeeze in some writing and drawing. Yet I get frustrated when my house isn’t clean. Other than strangers on the internet, I almost never tell anyone I know that I write books, because I have a weird insecurity that they won’t take me seriously. But I never feel happier than when I’m working on my projects.
If you have a few spare minutes, would you do me a favor and write a review? That really helps to give the book credibility. Also, please consider checking out my other books. Most of the time, I’m working on The Nine Princesses, a fun series about a family of teenage princesses. The first book “Maelyn” can be downloaded for free.
Thanks so much for supporting an indie author. God bless you.
