About the Author

Cassandra Parkin has a Master's degree in English Literature from York University, and has been writing fiction all her life - mostly as Christmas and birthday presents for friends and family. She is married with two children, has so far resisted her clear destiny to become a mad old cat lady, and lives in a small but perfectly-formed village in East Yorkshire. "New World Fairy Tales" is her first published book.

Reviews

The best newcomer I've comes across this year is fellow Scott Prize winner Cassandra Parkin with her New World Fairy Tales. -- Jonathan Pinnock * Jonathan Pinnock's Write Stuff * Drawing on the original, unexpurgated tales collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, six of their most famous works are re-imagined in the rich and endlessly varied landscapes of contemporary America. From the glass towers of Manhattan to the remoteness of the Blue Ridge mountains; from the swamps of Louisiana to the jaded glamour of Hollywood, New World Fairy Tales reclaims the fairy tale for the modern adult audience. A haunting blend of romance and realism, these stripped-back narratives of human experience are the perfect read for anyone who has read their child a bedtime fairy story, and wondered who ever said these were stories meant for children. -- Jen Campbell * This Is Not The Six Word Novel * New World Fairy Tales is immensely enjoyable and utterly compelling; I was drawn into each world and into the concerns of each of the characters. I would highly recommend it. -- Rebecca Rouillard * Writers' Hub *
