About the Book

Storytelling has long been the vehicle for explaining the origin of mysterious events. As children, we were told about such never-to-be-seen characters as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and of course, the Tooth Fairy. These sweet fantasies grounded the bounty of gifts that marked our childhoods. While we have outgrown the need for these explanations, their charm remains. The Legend of the Tooth Fairy takes a fresh approach to the origin of this beloved spirit. Spinning a tale of compassion, determination, and integrity, the story paints the picture of a creature whose heart is touched by another’s distress and does all in her power to bring joy. As the Tooth Fairy searches for ways to resolve the moon’s dilemma, she acts with love and honesty. Her efforts are magically blessed, which result in surprise and contentment for all involved.

About the Author

Fairy tales and folklore have always fascinated me, so reading has been a lifelong love. Expressing myself through the written word also comes easily to me. These habits suited me well for a career in teaching, where I was able to share these interests with students and hopefully inspire them. My career path led me to chaplaincy and involved moving from Pennsylvania to Alabama, where I now reside. This story about the tooth fairy has been a long time coming. When my niece was a little girl, I wanted to create a gift for her that would mark a milestone in her life, and so the book was born. I hand-printed the original book and put its publishing on my bucket list. Now, being retired, I'm pleased to make that dream come true.
