Katy and Dominic talk about fairy tales, powerful women in the ancient world, scheduling with deadlines, and self publishing.
Katy Campbell is a Catholic humorist and lover of fairy tales. She prefers the gory originals to the squeaky clean Disney retellings but will gladly consume both. She graduated from John Paul the Great Catholic University in 2012 with a B.S. in Communications Media and recently left her real job to pursue a career as a starving author. She’s published three books and numerous short stories, which you can find on her website: https://katysfables.com
The Canadian Nights is a collection of comedy fairy tales set in a universe almost identical to our own—almost. For example, it’s true that you get a lovely view of Mt. Rainier if you are flying south from SeaTac on a clear day. However, the bit about the dragons circling the top of the mountain is entirely fictional. I will not apologize for such fabrications. I truly believe they make life more interesting.
