Once Upon a Retelling

Once Upon a Retelling

Welcome to my Once Upon a Retelling interview series! I'm a huge fan of retellings, and I'm really interested in hearing about authors' own love of the original stories, and what inspired them to retell those stories. And so Once Upon a Retelling was born, a feature in which I interview authors about their versions of well-loved tales.

Below are the retellings whose authors I have interviewed to date, organised by type. Click on the book cover to be taken to the interview.
