Did you know I wrote a series of Once Upon a Time adventures called The Wonder Tales
? Don’t worry if you said no, I have been talking a lot about the Teddy Bear Tales
and it’s spin-off Hero Ted
. Recently though I’ve been giving my Fairy Tales a bit of a face lift and trying to draw attention to the stories I really just wrote for my kids, and long neglected. Anyhow… I decided to redesign the covers for the Wonder Tales collective volumes (see above), please let me know what you think of them 🙂
Short Story – Proud by James Mulholland and Caitlin Soliman

There was no way she could do this, could she?
Introducing a new Wonder Tale to join my growing collection of all ages original fantasy stories – The Tall Tale of Tobisum the Inch High Samurai.

He has joined the Princess Archer Gwendolyn and her companions Kurt the Wolf-boy & Will’O the Wisp on her quest to find the door to Baba Yaga’s house. As they search for Jiki Ninki the Goblin who has the answer to their quest; Tobisum tells the tale of how he became a Samurai. It is a tale of daring and adventure, of bravery and heart. As Tobisum faces demons, saves the girl and rides to battle on the back of Bee.
