These days, while the world is under self-isolation or quarantine, people are turning to the artists to inspire and entertain.
Historical fiction author and founder of Discovering Diamonds, Helen Hollick, has gathered a collection of Ten Minute Tales to share with the world. I was very pleased to contribute an early short story that, up until now, has only been available through Red Tuque Books anthology, Canadian Tales of the Fantastic.
Confessions of a Tooth Fairy is quirky magical realism, very different than my usual stories which are historical and romantic. The story came to me while I was taking a walk through Queen’s Park Circle in Toronto. I was thinking about my youngest son’s misadventures with the tooth fairy and the story simply came to me. I remember tapping most of it in my phone because I had come unprepared with a notebook. The story amused me then and it still does. I hope you find it entertaining too.
