Fairy Tales Take a Turn for the Supporting Cast

Jenniffer Wardell published Fairy Godmothers, Inc. in April of 2013. Her take on the world of fairy tales revolves around characters who are normally given the bit parts that help the main characters move forward.

“There’s not really fairy tales for people who don’t fit in,” says Wardell. “I wanted to write something that gave the world’s supporting cast a chance at the spotlight.”

Even though there are many fairy tale adaptations out there, Wardell says that her stories stand out.

“You have never experienced one like mine before,” says Wardell. “It is funny. It is sweet. It’s definitely a new twist.”

Wardell wrote her first book at the age of six about a peacock that goes on an adventure during Halloween.

“When you love stories, there’s never quite enough in the world,” says Wardell. It is important to add your own.

Fairy Godmothers, Inc. can be found at as can Wardell’s story based on the Three Little Pigs called Huff and Puff.

Wardell’s next book Beast Charming is scheduled to be released in February of 2015. In the meantime, fans can find her movie reviews and other articles in the Davis County Clipper and follow her on Blogspot.

Author Darren Lamb Part of the fun at Penguinate’s Inaugural Festivities at Ogden UnCon

Lilac City Comicon 2019

Ogden UnCon is in its first year, and we are excited to be a part of it. To celebrate this inaugural event, we’ll have penguins, books, a tiny Avenger giveaway and SLC Author Darren Lamb at our table signing his books. Lamb will be with us at Space 227 from 1 pm to 2 pm on Saturday to personalize his books for you.

Lamb is a former Marine and practicing Buddhist with over 30 years of martial arts training. He uses his life’s experiences and philosophy to create fascinating characters and gripping adventure stories. The truths his novels reveal are often set alongside gore and the human experience. Lamb has also co-written a book with his daughter Rowan. “The Worst Buddhist” is great for parents to read to their children.

His forward to my own book “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is as touching and real as it gets. Stop by the Penguinate table at Space 227 and pick up one of his books. We look forward to seeing you there!
