Fairytale Inspiration: Little Red Riding Hood

What is your story about?

Young Rowan Ericson has no clue that her blood holds an ancient secret. While she’s been masquerading as a human for almost all of her life, the shadows of the magical community have been searching for her. A fabulously dark modern retelling of Red Riding Hood, Rowan Ericson began her journey 5 years ago and this is the prequel to her story.

The worst monsters are the ones that rip you from the inside out. Grief. Pain. Death. Loss. One car wreck changes the course of my life–leaving me with nothing but my Grams and whole lot of issues. But when I met Leo, Julius, and Simon, things were different. I was normal. I was happy. Even if our friendship was driving me crazy. Even if, every time I saw them, I wanted more, I felt like I was at least somewhat in control.

But I was dead. Wrong.

I have no control and I’ve learned that monsters aren’t just feelings anymore. My name is Rowan Ericson and not only are monsters real, but I think I might be one of them.

Paris or New York? Paris
