Having escaped an adjuster's life in London Insurance land, Andrew now teaches English as a foreign language. He has taught in Thailand, Taiwan, Argentina, Spain, and is now teaching in Japan.

ME: I think one of my favorite aspects of this book was how you took classic fairy tales and incorporated them into one story, although you did twist some of them a little… I mean, seriously? Snow White, an assassin? How did you come up with those ideas!?

Blackstone & Brenwen by Andrew D. Mellusco
"Really love Mellusco's take on fairy tales in these books. This story was a bit more confusing with the amount of sub-stories and characters to keep track of but still an excellent and fun read."

description: On December 24th and 25th Phoenix Flyer will be free.

Jenna May has always been a curious little girl. The beautiful golden plate with the gorgeous egg shaped ruby in the middle of it, just aided to her curiosity. There was something familiar about it in all its elegant. All she wanted to do was hold it for at least a second. What could possibly happen?
