Fairy Tale Crime Challenge - The Stories


The challenge from John Kenyon at Things I'd Rather Be Doing was to write a crime fiction story based on a fairy tale. Along with "Skyler Hobbs and the Magic Solution" (posted here Saturday) there were 15 other entries. I'm still working my way through the list, but the ones I've read so far have been magical!

I wasn't able to read all of them but the few I did were very well done.

Once Upon A Crime . . . and then again, and then again

I'm enjoying them along with the happenstance of Hobbs. ~ Absolutely*Kate
