About the Author

Lindsay A. Franklin is an award-winning author, award-winning freelance editor, and homeschooling mom of three. She would wear pajama pants all the time if it were socially acceptable. She spends a lot of time in made-up worlds, and she’s passionate about sparking imagination through stories of infinite possibility. Her debut fantasy novel, The Story Peddler, releases in 2018. When she’s not exploring the fantastical, she’s exploring the Bible and encouraging young women through her devotional books (click here for more information on Adored). Lindsay lives in her native San Diego with her husband (master of the dad joke), their awesomely nerdy kids, two thunder pillows (AKA cats), and a stuffed wombat with his own Instagram following (@therealwombatman). You can find Lindsay on social media, too, if Wombatman hasn’t hijacked all her accounts. She’s @LinzyAFranklin on Instagram and Twitter, and she Facebooks at

The Interview!

You are faced with a powerful being who wants to challenge you to a contest. If you win you get your heart's desire. If you lose, a terrible punishment, and you are contractually obligated to play. What sort of contest do you choose for it to be? (Can be anything from a sword fight to a cook off)

A pun-off. I can’t lose.
If you favorite historical era had an ice cream flavor made in its honor, what would it taste like?

Elizabethan England tastes like lemon tart with a walnut crust. And ale.
What's in the box? What box? How should I know!? You're the one standing there with an imaginary box!

Keys. The box is full of keys that open magical gateways, like the one you’re standing in front of. Be careful. There are dragons behind that gateway, and only 17% of those dragons are friendly. Choose your allies wisely.

If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?

Question: What’s your favorite 90s sitcom? Answer: Yes.

About the Book

Selling stories is a deadly business Tanwen doesn't just tell stories--she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king. During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king's guard hunts her down...and they're not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she's not the only outlaw in the empire. There's a rebel group of weavers...and they're after her too.
