Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for a good retelling.
Cinderella, Snow White, Peter Pan, you name it! If a story takes an old classic and twists it into something new and still magic, I am HERE FOR IT.
It may come as no surprise then, that I have made quite a few friends who share the same passion for the retold story. A perfect example of this is my AMAZING friend, K.M. Robinson. I met K.M. a little over a year ago after hearing about her dystopian retelling of (wait for it: ) Goldilocks. (How cool is THAT?!)
After we connected, I was able to chat more with K.M. and learn all about her authoring, her social media strategies, and all the other phenomenal things she is doing (jury is still out on whether she is in fact, a robot). Long story short, she’s an amazing writer who is doing some really cool stuff, and today, she has offered to share her insight with us and share one of the reasons she loves retellings, too.
Are you ready?
