The Fox Bride
The Fox Bride is a fairy tale for grownups about a young fox named Fionn who one day encounters a man in the woods. As she watches him, day after day, she cannot help but fall in love. Soon, she can think of nothing else but him and decides to use her magic to transform into a human so she can become his bride.
This story is based on Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid), the legend of the selkie women, and the swan maiden stories from folklore. What happens to a woman when she changes her skin for the man she loves, giving up everything she knows? What is the price of this sacrifice?

I'm Yancy Lael (ly-ELL) the author of The Poison Box and creator of the Briarlore series. I'm a storyteller and an artist. I've always been the record keeper in my family, the historian, the collector of tales. I cherish my stories, and the stories that come to me through the Muses. Stories are the best kind of soul medicine we have in this world.
I make stories with photographs, art, music, and of course, in my favorite way: with words. And I find all my inspiration in nature. I live (even if only metaphorically) in the deep, dark forest, roaming the endless deer trails alongside my closest companions, the great horned owls and my wild canine friends. This is the place where all my work is born.
