Can you summarize your new book Skipping Midnight is the third and final novel in the Desperately Ever After series, which imagines what would happen if our favorite fairy tale princesses were the best of friends and had dreams, dilemmas, and libidos of the modern woman. Set in a fictional realm based on New York City, it’s a cross between Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives, and the Brothers Grimm. Like most concluding novels, Skipping Midnight opens when things are at their darkest. I don’t want to give away too […]

It’s the career move of a lifetime, and Julianne can’t believe it’s hers: a position as an event planner at a country house in Cornwall, England, beginning with the wedding of a celebrity!
