Damsels Overcome

 My next book -- DAMSELS OVERCOME


I've been writing about folktale that inspired me, and I have enhanced, adapted, and re-image into a female narratives only to discover -- my deception. All tradition tales between 12th to 18th century written in male voices that dominated in traditional literature, even today to keep that norm. 

Selected are folktales from my child readings and adult telling, which influence my thinking ‘women are the servers, helpless,  hysterical, not worthy, the weaker sex’ was the truth and shaped my reality. The powers the females in the selected stories in Damsels Overcome reveal skills used to survive. Included are bits of my beliefs as a child, young adult, and the insights of the old crone about the traditional norms included in folktales and legends. Men are also the victims of these norms.

Would you read my draft to see if I proved my point? 


Or, read the stories on this website under the heading Damsels Overcome.
