My 8th Book — Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale — hits the market!

Snow White's Seven Patches

“Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale” is my eighth book, and third in the Fairy Ability Tales series. This is the FIRST fairy tale in HISTORY featuring a Princess with the skin condition of vitiligo.

PICTURE BOOK PLOT: “Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale” is a modern-day story with the classical theme of good conquering evil. You’ll find the age-old ingredients of a magic mirror, poisonous apple, dwarfs, and romance here. However, this adaptation includes a vain mother who’s so clouded by beauty myths that she keeps her own daughter a secret, while plagiarizing the workings of her mind. Everything falls apart when the good mirror finally speaks the truth!

First a Comic Strip…Now a Book is Out?

Yes, you read that correctly. Your favorite reality-series comic strip character now has a book out by Marvelous Spirit Press! “DitzAbled Princess: A Comical Diary” is a hybrid of a comic strip collection meets a graphic novel layout. You can purchase the book at many fine online retailers. Don’t miss out on the laugh(s)! Art and design of the book are by, Katarina Andriopoulos.

The Princess and the Ruby: An Autism Fairy Tale

A Mysterious Girl Puts the Future of a Kingdom in the Balance!

One icy-cold winter night, everything changes: a young girl shows up at the king and new queen’s castle doorstep wearing little more than a purple jacket and carrying a black pouch. The king recognizes the mystery girl’s identity as the long-lost princess without her uttering even a single word. However, the new queen refuses to believe the king’s claims. In turn, a devious plan is hatched… and, the results are quite fitting!

  • This new twist on Hans Christen Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea is surely to be loved by all fairy tale enthusiasts.
  • The Princess and the Ruby: An Autism Fairy Tale adds to much-needed age-appropriate literature for girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Both fun and education are cleverly weaved in this magical tale, teaching children to be comfortable in their own skin and to respect the differences of others.

Acclaim for The Princess and the Ruby

“As someone who has a couple of friends with Autistic kids, I understand the challenges these families have. This modern day twist on The Princess and the Pea not only shows how others judge something they do not understand, but how someone with Autism can see, feel and do things one might not expect.”
–V.S. Grenier, Mom’s Choice Silver Honoree and award-winning author

The Princess and the Ruby is a heartwarming narrative; a tale that beautifully depicts several unique characterizations of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Jewel Kats has refreshingly shed light upon a daily struggle to redefine ‘normalized behaviors’, in an admirable effort to gain societal acceptance and respect.”
–Vanessa De Castro, Primary Residential Counselor with Autistic Youth
