Spinning Gold
Publisher : Noble Romance
How long would it be before the prince discovered Freawine couldn't really spin straw into gold—or that this "peasant girl" was really a boy?


The Story Behind This Book
I had an idea to write my own version of the Rumpelstiltskin tale: as a medievalist, my first thought was to choose that setting and then it occurred to me that it would be fun to switch the gender of the "girl" -- and it was!

Praise and Reviews
From Bitten by Books: “Spinning Gold” was an amusing take on the old Rumpelstiltskin tale where a young maiden is doomed to try and spin straw into gold - only this time around, that maiden is actually a man. It was interesting to consider that though Frea was genetically male, he lived his life as a woman and was highly skilled with textiles. The root of his father’s boast were grounded in actual mastery, and yet the drunkard gave no care as to how his behavior would affect his son. The story took on a more sexual bent than the traditional story and yet it seemed almost as innocent. The twists and turns at the end were both surprising and pleasing, if somewhat convenient. I enjoyed reading this.
