Some say a mouse king has seven heads. Hah, trust a human to get our legends wrong. A mouse prince must perform seven tricks before the twelve days of Christmas are up. It’s how he wins his crown, but I’ve got my whiskers set on something else. A stiff beauty with a magnificent jaw, waiting for me under the holiday shrub. I caught his scent in a dream, which I’ve been sniffing after ever since. Scamper with me through my adventures and misadventures, dodging traps, cats, and giants, while I win a steadfast nutcracker’s heart.
About K.S. Trenten (Silicon Valley, California Author)
K.S. Trenten lives in San Jose with her husband, two cats, and a host of imaginary characters in her head. The cats will only permit her foot to appear in this image since Sage and Cinnamon wish it be known that K.S. Trenten's primary occupation is feline servant. They have graciously allowed her to write when they don't require her attention elsewhere. :) She's written Fairest, a f/f fantasy fairytale which appears in Nine Star Press's Once Upon a Rainbow, At Her Service, another f/f fairytale which appears in Once Upon a Rainbow 2, and Seven Tricks, a mouse centric version of The Nutcracker where the mouse gets the nutcracker. It's all the San Jose ballet's fault. :) Their wonderful version of The Nutcracker had to go and inspire me. :) K.S. Trenten is currently working on a number of stories, including Aissa and Polyxena (a m/m mythical tale of cross-dressing inspired by the contradictory legends of Achilles) and Stealing Myself From Shadows (the first of a series of ambient fantasy novels inspired by Tarot card imagery). You can catch free samples of her works at her Cauldrons of Eternal Inspiration at inspirationcauldron.wordpress.com and inspirationcauldron.blogspot.com.
