"I began writing songs and stories targeting family entertainment. I fell in love with certain fairytales that had lasting messages, like the little match girl and the Ugly Duckling. I love the telling of stories and I was on fire with the idea that maybe I could write an original fairytale. With lessons of friendship, bravery, truthfulness and love. All tucked away in a story line full of adventure, humor and wacky characters." Watch a trailer of that fairytale below:
