About Jeanna Mason Stay
Jeanna Mason Stay has always been a sucker for a good fairy tale. The romantic kind, the gruesome, the utterly bizarre—she’ll take them all. And then she’ll rewrite them. Her favorite fairy tale of all, though, is the one she lives daily with her dreamy husband and their four charming children. They are currently happily-ever-aftering in Maryland.
When she’s not getting lost in a book or keeping the baby from eating one, she’s probably debating one with friends or listening to the older children reenact literary scenes. Along with books, Jeanna also loves fireflies, serial commas, and birds of paradise. She dreams of one day owning a herd of Chia sheep.
You can find her blogging when fancy strikes at calloohcallaycallay.blogspot.com and sharing random tidbits at https://www.facebook.com/JeannaMasonStay/.

DEEP MAGIC is an electronic magazine that publishes clean short fiction in the fantasy and science fiction genres (epic, paranormal, steampunk, etc).
Heroes search for happiness, villains plot revenge, and nothing is as easy as it once seemed. Gretel suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, an orphan girl questions Rumpelstiltskin’s legacy, a monster cat searches for a child to eat, and the pied piper realizes stealing a hundred and thirty children may not have been his smartest idea.
Fairy tales have endured for centuries even though—or perhaps because—their conclusions are often more unsettling than satisfying. In Unspun, eleven storytellers come together to challenge and explore a few of those classic tales. Unexpected twists are sure to provoke both thought and laughter.
Gorgeous illustrations by Ruth Nickle accompany each piece.
