ELISABETH BROWN has always loved words. The third of seven children, she enjoyed being homeschooled through her senior year of high school, and is now studying piano performance at Appalachian Bible College. When she’s ignoring the fact that she should probably be practicing more or doing Greek homework, you’ll find her sewing, baking, reading, singing along to basically any musical ever created, hiking through the woods, or laughing at incredibly silly puns.
What Eyes Can See is her first published story, but she also rambles at www.MetaphoricalCello.wordpress.com.
Painfully shy Arella begs her stepmother to let her stay home from the prince’s ball. But kindly Duchess Germaine is determined that her beautiful stepdaughter should be presented at court along with her own two daughters. So, dressed in a gorgeous gown and a pair of heirloom slippers, Arella catches the eye of the crown prince . . . and finds her life suddenly far more complicated than she ever desired.
What is the story behind your story?
Hi, Brenda! I’ve always dreamed of writing, so when I saw the Five Glass Slippers contest I jumped at the chance. The time table was perfect: I had a month between the end of school and my summer trip to China, and not a lot to do besides stay up late, listen to RaminKarimloo, and write. So that’s what I did. It’s difficult for me to go into some of my writing motivations without giving the entire plot away, but basically I just wanted a happy ending for everyone. After I re-read it, I realized I had written a romance, which is ridiculous for me, as I know nothing about the topic…but somehow, it passed muster, and not only did my characters get their happy endings, but I got mine: I’m a writer!
