A Note From the Publisher
Wendy A. Simpson has been writing since the age of five after a family friend gave her an old typewriter, when she saw that she enjoyed creating works of mystery and suspense that only a five-year-old could. She completed her first novel and started shopping it at fourteen. In later years, she figured out mystery wasn’t her thing. It was a story by Ray Bradbury that she enjoyed that turned her towards fantasy.
On a more personal note, she likes to think she is the world’s biggest bibliophile. When she's not writing she indulges in her favorite pastimes which include working in her garden, and video gaming and streaming. Come see her on Twitch as Runic Nightshade.

"W.A. Simpson begins with a simple tale of revenge and quickly weaves a grand adventure bound together with the threads of fairy tales and fey creations...where possessed staffs speak, wil-o-wisps roam, and Jack’s giant vine protects the world both above and below.” — Troy Carrol Bucher, author of Lies of Descent
