Katy and Dominic talk about fairy tales, powerful women in the ancient world, scheduling with deadlines, and self publishing.
Every author hears a call they are meant to hear, an invite to unlock something of God in the world.

This tier of taletelling are the mysteries, the stories of direct contact with sacred, sacramental, and spiritual realities.

Fairy Tales aren’t about fairies, but about the realm of Faery. That liminal place beyond human sight that exists deep within us, and in which we are immersed, like an ocean.
