Fantasy Novelist Makes Fairy Tale World His Own

Author Jim Hines's new novel, The Stepsister Scheme, was inspired by his four year-old daughter's princess obsession.
"I wanted to offer an alternative, a trio of princesses who could get out there and kick butt with the best of the men," he said.

In the book, several months after Danielle (Cinderella) marries her prince, one of her stepsisters tries to kill her. A servant girl named Talia saves her life, but the stepsister escapes. Danielle soon finds herself introduced to Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, both of whom work for the queen. The three princesses must work to unravel the stepsisters' plot and save Danielle's prince.
