FLORENCE WITKOP, TELLER OF TALL TALES

A psychic dire wolf pup.

A jilted woman who becomes the savior and protector of a dozen ducklings. (Yes, you read that right. Ducklings.)

A green boy who lives in a river. Literally.

A woman forced to depend on a sharpshooter to keep both her and her beloved horses safe.

A botanist so good with plants that it’s beyond uncanny—it’s impossible.

A group of people about to be executed because they exist.

A detective looking for a lost boy in the corner of a round pond.

A woman who can speak to people through her dreams.

Those are just a few of Florence’s many wonderful characters.

They are nice people. Decent. The kind you’d like as friends. Normal as apple pie (or not) and living in the real world.

What happens to them when things go wrong is what makes Florence’s stories special.

Reality is skewed until the world isn’t what you thought it was as Florence’s characters unexpectedly find themselves in the middle of situations ranging from the difficult all the way to the horrendous. But her characters act instead of running away and, in the process, they survive, thrive, overcome whatever obstacles large or small are thrown in front of them and live happily ever after.

Oh, and just in case you wondered, Florence’s stories always end happily.

Always.

Guaranteed.

Check out this small sampling of her work (stories from before the world went online aren’t included):
