Biography

Betsy Schow

BETSY SCHOW is the "TODAY Show" featured author of the non-fiction book, FINISHED BEING FAT; however she’s been mixing up real life and fantasy for as long as she can remember.   If someone were to ask about her rundown truck, she’s 100% positive that mechanical gremlins muck up her engine. And the only reason her house is dirty is because the dust bunnies have gone on strike.  She lives in Utah with her own knight in geeky armor and their two princesses (that can totally shapeshift into little beasts). When not writing, she acts as the Tournament Director for Odyssey of the Mind and helps teach kids creative thinking (or how to turn their toasters into robots).

And she's thundering into Kansas to erase Dorethea's story. Back in Camelot, outlaw Rexi's got her own problems...like being locked in a tower. She may have trained with Robin Hood, but she's going to need to steal more than a key to escape Gwenevere's trap to take back Excalibur. And even if Rexi manages to get free, she still needs to reclaim her storyline from Morte's wicked plotting.

Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day. Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks --- like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.Talk about unhappily ever after.
