Spinning tales of subtle magic with unexpected twists, Byrd writes the book you need, not the one you expected.

As one reviewer wrote: "When I get a Byrd story, I know I'm in good hands."

Whether it is a Doppelgänger who was once a medieval knight now working in college administration, or an updated Red Riding Hood escaping a post-WWI wolf pack, her characters all feel real.

That Celtic goddess at the pet store? She's someone you know. A medieval queen fleeing an abusive marriage? You experience her pain and triumph.

With a B.A. in journalism, she's worked in the writing field for over thirty-five years. Her hobbies include reading, nature hikes, photography, and traveling when she has the money. She seldom has the money.

She is married, with t

My story deals with some of the questions I had about the fairytale such as the weakness of the father character, why was the Beast cursed, and who cursed him. It has a historical setting of the late Victorian period when women were starting to move into the world of employment.

Price of a Rose also has no evil stepmother or stepsisters. Instead, there is a supportive family of three sisters, all different, who in her own way helps the Beast recover from the fairy's curse. There is also an appearance by the fairy who cursed him (but shhhh I can't tell you more).(less)

The book cover is also under development and I hope to reveal it at the end of the summer when it goes on pre-sale.

I've posted a recent blog giving updates on all the characters before book 4 begins. There is a lot of them to juggle and I want to get their stories right, so writing the last book will take up most of 2021, with a spring 2022 publication date planned.

Each of the College Fae books has an ending (no cliffhanger) so it is fine to begin the series now. The big question is who is destroying the Fae courts in the Perilous Realm, why, and how can Brigit and Logan stop them?

Check out the post to learn more about the characters (some mild spoilers if you haven't read the first three, but very mild).

Quotes by Byrd Nash  (?)

“Sometimes the rooms still change, I think, to tease us. The night of our wedding, Griffin couldn’t find our bedroom for over an hour! As you can imagine, he wasn’t as amused by this jest as I was.”
Byrd Nash, Price of a Rose: A Beauty & Beast Tale

“It takes more than good handwriting to become a Learned Magician,” scoffed Sir Griffin, highly irritated.

“Of course it does,” the girl replied with scorn, “but if a word is spelled wrong or badly, that destroys a spell. The basis of good spellcraft begins in writing. After all, the word spell means the arrangement of letters.”

Like most who had tried to debate with Poppy Parker, Sir Griffin found himself at a dead end.”
Byrd Nash, Price of a Rose: A Beauty & Beast Tale
