Storyteller's Journey

Can fairy tales come true? Evidently millions, if not billions, of people around the world believe they can. Watching Prince William marry the commoner, Kate Middleton, had all the pomp and pageantry of the fairy tales of old.
     What does the royal wedding have to do with this writer? Only this: Watching the throngs of people flood the streets of London reminded me that we all long for something  magical in our lives. As a writer of middle grade fantasy it is my task to capture the reader's interest and give them a chance, if only for the duration of the story, to enter a make-believe world.  Leaving their ordinary life behind, for a small moment in time, live the extraordinary. The story I am working on contains no princesses, rather an ancient forest with whimsical, talking creatures. All you need to create your own enchanted world is to open the door of your imagination and your readers will thank you for it! (So far the only "readers" I have are those members of the MPCG, but they seem to be enjoying my text. ^_^)
