About the author:
I write software by day and speculative fiction when I should be sleeping. My fiction falls somewhere in the fairy tale, fantasy, and ghost story genres. I've been writing all my life but decided to become super serious about it and pursue publication a few years ago. My work has appeared in various anthologies and magazines. I live with my wife and children and cat in a house with more books than bookshelf space. You can find me musing about words and fiction on my blog at jeffchapmanwriter.blogspot.com.
Tales of Woe and Wonder
Tales of Woe and Wonder collects nine fantasy stories from Jeff Chapman. There are new fantasy stories and fairy tales as well as classic fairy tales retold. You'll find a mix of fairy-tale wonder and tragic woe, ranging from a young boy's first brush with the harsh realities of war in "A Gift from over the Sea" to a miraculous bridge in "The Master and the Miller's Daughter" to a young girl's encounter with a witch's insidious spells in "Esme's Amulet."
