C.K. Rieke

Having grown up in the suburbs of Kansas, but never having seen a full tornado or a yellow brick road, I have been told more than my fair share of times while traveling, ‘You’re not in Kansas anymore.’ I just respond, ‘Never heard that one,’ with a smile.

In the ‘burbs’ though, I found my passion for reading fantasy stories early. Reading books with elves, orcs and monsters took my young imagination to different worlds I wanted to live in.

Now, I create my own worlds. Not so much in the elves and orc vein, but more in the heroes versus dragons one— there’s a difference, right?

Everything she thought she knew about reality is about to turn upside down . . .

Princess Fallon’s life in the castle has been dreamy, but now her castle lay under siege by an army and she must make a choice: Should she stay at her home to face the encroaching army or use a spell that will sweep her off to another world?

There’s a catch though… why is there always a catch…? In this dark fairy tale, things aren’t always as they seem— especially when magic is involved. Find out what happens in Hidden Magic.
