How do you make sense of a world in which right is wrong, evil is virtuous, and those you were taught were monsters are the ones truly worthy of saving?
Jennifer’s life was chaotic enough without having to leave home for college. Still reeling from her mother’s untimely death, Jen resists the overwhelming urge to cling to life as she remembers and continues to press onward as she knows her mother would want. But as she hugs her dad goodbye, she has no idea that she will soon be thrust into a world she once thought existed only deep within her childhood imagination. When an ill-timed Samaritan mission goes awry, Jen finds herself stumbling through an unfamiliar land of quaint, friendly dwarves, a monstrous wolf, and blood-thirsty deceit. Is everything here as black and white as it seems, or must she simply look deeper to find the hidden shades of red?
Born and raised in southern Alabama, Reese Reed is a former elementary school teacher and current educational writer. She was first bitten by the writer’s bug at the tender age of ten, when a teacher read her short story aloud to the class. While Reese enjoyed writing throughout her childhood and teenage years, it wasn’t until a life-changing moment (some might call it mid-life crisis) that she finally became serious about chasing her passion. On a wing and a prayer she quit her teaching job and uprooted her family to move to a new home and new job that would allow her the time and freedom to pursue her dream of becoming a published novelist.
Reese has published one fictional novella in addition to Red. Claustrophobic, Reese’s Christmas themed novella, gives Mrs. Claus’s perspective on the story of Santa Claus.
In addition to her fiction writing, Reese taps her education background, writing curriculum and educational materials for major educational publishers such as Pearson and McGraw Hill. She is currently the Director of Education for WITS Games, an educational game developer.
Reese is a happily married mother of three rambunctious boys. When she does find herself with a moment to spare, she enjoys reading, journaling, and daydreaming.
