Princess Grace and Prince Dignity, a royal couple with mystical powers, are set to be crowned king and queen of the magnificent Kingdom of Love. But on the eve of their coronation, disaster strikes, and Grace is told her prince has been murdered. Grief-stricken, the princess reportedly dies of a broken heart, and the shocked kingdom falls into the eager hands of Dignity’s unscrupulous cousin, Prince Denial. Months later, however, Grace is found alive with a gap in her memory, a loss of her powers, and a mysterious Pig Latin note suggesting Prince Dignity is very much alive. As she searches for her prince throughout the rundown kingdom, Grace stumbles upon an ancient secret known as the Cosmic Source—a powerful force which promises to revive her mystical powers and lead to an exciting new way of living. But with the crown title “throne” for a loop, the future of the Kingdom of Love hangs upon the prince’s Dignity. Find out if True Love conquers all in this mystical, linguistical tale!

I have another highly recommended gem for the top of the pile that proves that just maybe, love is all we need!

Grace and Dignity: The Ark of the Sacred Scrolls

Tell us THREE things about you that cannot be found online  
1. While on a group tour to Italy, I was left behind at Trevi fountain on my first night in Rome. As I didn't have time to refresh my Italian skills before the trip, I was a bit rusty and misunderstood what time our tour guide said we were to meet back at the fountain. I was an hour past the 15min she had said! I panicked because my phone didn't transfer over to Italy time, I had no idea how late I was, and I didn't know anyone from my group well enough after 1/2 a day to recognize whether any of them were around me. So, I bought a watch, found a payphone, and called my hotel crying. The gentleman was so kind and understanding. Charming Enrico... He calmed me down, told me how to find a cab, and got me back safe and sound. Whew! From then on, it was smooth sailing. Except for the day I locked myself out of the hotel room in just a towel after a shower. Oh, and the day I caused a power outage in half my Venice hotel room from drying my hair. Um, so... yeah.
 
2. I once asked actor John Stamos to marry me - and he said yes! As teenagers, my sister and I were big fans of him on General Hospital (as "Blackie") and when we heard he was going to be signing autographs at the mall, we were all over it. By the time we got up there, I had mustered up enough courage in my teenage romantic brain and popped the question. To my surprise, he said yes! I'm still waiting for the ring...

3. In my film editing days, my hands were in the film The Last Seduction as Linda Fiorentino's hand stand in. Her character was a black widow of sorts. After she loved a guy, she'd steal his money and leave a note behind written backward so that you had to hold it up to a mirror to read it. Well, Ms. Fiorentino couldn't write backwards, her regular stand in couldn't do it, and no one on the film crew could do it. I had worked with the director on his last film and he remembered me doodling and writing backwards and upside-down, so he brought me in. When I got to the set, they shouted, "It's the Backward Handwriting Lady!" and dragged me over to a large table surrounded by the entire crew. For 10min straight, they shouted out different phrases for me to write backwards for them, just to prove that I could actually do it. Honestly, I didn't see what the big deal was. After all, I'd spent many a childhood cross-country plane-ride practicing it and was an old pro. But I dazzled and amazed them anyway. And not only did I get to be queen for a day, I got $75 and a free manicure out of it. Heck, if I'd known it was such a hot talent, I would've charged them more!


What did you want to be when you were little?

A dancer and a beautician. I'm trying to rekindle my dancing days. And I still cut my uncle and aunt's hair to this day!

What is your favorite fairytale romance? Why?
Easy: The Princess Bride (movie)! I've watched it easily 25-30 times over the years. I love it because, it's got it all: sword fights, shrieking eels, True Love, adventure, a giant, a 6-fingered man, and an inconceivable battle of wits. :) It is so well-written and I just never get tired of it. It was actually one of my inspirations for writing Grace and Dignity

    2. How could you not like characters like Sneezy and Sleepy who cook and clean for you?! And who are what their names suggest?! Hey, kinda like Princess Grace and Prince Dignity, now that I think about it... Except without the cooking and cleaning.
      For the record, before The Princess Bride, my favorite fairytale film was always Cinderella. --Laura Grody

  2. I just love fairytales! Each one is the current favourite as I read them which I do a lot given I have young grandchildren ;-p

  3. I like the one where the guy kisses a frog and she turns into a beautiful, rich beyond measure princess. The she tells him "Thanks, but no thanks, you peasant" and heads back to her castle. He slinks home to his little shack in the woods, having gained nothing but a lipful of permanent warts. Ah, nothing like happy endings! :-)

    1. LOL! You should be an author! Was the man's name Mac, or is that a mystery?

    1. I don't have a particular type of guy - or gal - I like to write about. I prefer it if they make me laugh in some way. But the most important thing is that no matter what type of person they start out as, they grow as a person and change (hopefully for the better!) by the end of the story.
