Another Story Behind the Book with Michelle Davidson Argyle
I got the idea for Cinders from my four-year-old daughter! She kept watching Disney's version of Cinderella over and over and one day I just though - wow, I what happened after Cinderella got married to her prince? The idea sprouted into a short flash fiction piece and then later into the novella.
How did your characters come to life?
Cinderella, or Christina as she is called in the book, came to life at first because she was already a created character whom everyone knows! It was interesting to start writing the story and have Christina come to life in a completely different way than I expected. Many people have described her as unlikable, but in a good way. She is very real in her personality and choices.
Blurb of your book
Cinderella's happily-ever-after isn't turning out the way she expected. With her fairy godmother imprisoned in the castle and a mysterious stranger haunting her dreams, Cinderella is on her own to discover true love untainted by magic.
