Did you know – there is a genre specific to what I (dad) did when I wrote Gimmy Wolf? I had no idea.

The genre is called ‘Fractured Fairy Tale.’

Who knew? Right?

Do you know any other fractured fairy tales? Do tell!

I enjoyed writing Gimmy Wolf. 

I may break a few other fairy tales sometime. You know. Just for fun.

Which fairy tale do you wish you knew more about? Do tell.

Final thoughts:

We deeply appreciate having you part of the GUA world.
