Author of All the Ever Afters


A luminous reimagining of the classic Cinderella tale, told from the perspective of Cinderella’s stepmother. This novel explores the hidden complexities that lie beneath classic tales of good and evil, all the while showing us that how we confront adversity reveals a more profound, and ultimately more important, truth than the ideal of “happily ever after.”
