Serena Valentino has been weaving tales that combine mythos and guile for the past eight years with her work on the comic book series GloomCookie and Nightmares & Fairy Tales published by SLG Publishing. Her most recent work, Nightmares & Fairy Tales: 1140 Rue Royale has earned her critical acclaim in both the comic and horror domain, where she is known for her unique style of storytelling, bringing her readers into exquisitely frightening worlds filled with terror, beauty and extraordinary female protagonists. She has also written the play The Bride of the Mummy, presently in pre-production in New Orleans. Currently she is writing two new comic book series, Enchanted and Hell's Caf , as well as two short films based on fairytales for the independent film company End of Sky Productions. Fairest of All is her first novel.

Now, for the first time, we'll examine the life of the Wicked Queen and find out just what it is that makes her so nasty. Here's a hint: the creepy-looking man in the magic mirror is not just some random spooky visage-and he just might have something to do with the Queen's wicked ways!
