Andrea Cefalo is a bit of a roamer, growing up in New Hampshire, Maryland, and South Carolina, though the bulk of her family lives in Maine. She dreamed of a career in art restoration, but somehow ended up becoming a grade school teacher before realizing she really wanted to be a writer. She taught for three years and then decided to finish The Fairytale Keeper series and pursue her new found ambition. Andrea lives with her husband and two border collies in Greenville, South Carolina, which she calls home, at least for now.

From Pork to Pancakes: A Few of Europe’s Famous Fat Tuesday Foods

Fat Tuesday, Mardis Gras, Fastnacht, Carnevale. Whatever you call it, Europe marks the day before the start of Lent with celebration and feasting. In the past, Catholics abstained from eating certain foods during the six weeks before Eastermeat, eggs, milk, and butter, to name a few. During the Middle Ages, these foods were not just prohibited at Lent; they were banned. Since food preservation...

The Earl's New Bride by Frances Fowlkes
Rate this book

The Earls New Bride is a fast-paced, Austen-style romance. The heroine, Henrietta, loves her home more than the idea of marrying the mysteriously scarred man who owns it. But to keep Amhurst in her family, Henrietta must marry the dark earl. Her ...more
Andrea Cefalo answered a question about The Countess' Captive:
The Countess' Captive by Andrea Cefalo
Yes. I liked the name Galadriel, and it suited the character for me. I think most people can get over two characters sharing a name or a character having a name they don't particularly like. I hated the name Bella, but I still enjoyed Twilight.

Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
My Tom died as babies do, gently and without complaint. Because they have been such a little time with us, they seem to hold to life but weakly. I used to wonder if it was so because the memory of Heaven still lived within them, so that in leaving here they do not fear death as we do, who no longer know with certainty where it is our spirits go. This, I thought, must be the kindness that God does for them and for us, since He gives so many infants such a little while to bide with us.

My Point... And I Do Have One by Ellen DeGeneres
If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn't done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead. So, rather than seeing if perfume irritates a bunny rabbit's eyes, they should throw it in Charles Manson's eyes and ask him if it hurts.

The Fairytale Keeper by Andrea Cefalo
"The Fairytale Keeper was a whole new take on Snow White. I've read many fairy tale retellings which keep the magical aspect of the story and add new twists, but this is the first novel I've read where the fairy tale was retold with a plot grounded..." Read more of this review »
