The Period Fairy Books
‘The Period Fairy’ is a series of woman’s novelty books about a character we are all intimately familiar with. These books are written in the first person telling the various encounters Period Fairy has had with women throughout history.
She’s been around since the dawn of Womankind and worked with every woman throughout history without regard to race, creed or religion. Eve was her first client – Adam, her first nemesis. She knows the secrets of the ages and tells it in funny, lighthearted tales of her visits with every woman.
We go everywhere in history with her. It’s a sarcastic look at a character every woman understands. Never trite or gross humor, they’re accessible. She is approachable by all ages with her distinct sense of humor. This is her individual perspective.
Since her clients have included every artist, musician, historical and biblical woman in history, the Period Fairy is the only one who can take us on this journey. The Period Fairy will talk about the women she’s worked with and the role (both humorous and emotional) she’s played in shaping history.
Since the dawn of Womankind and forever in the future all women are and will always be connected by one magical, unique phenomenon.
The Period Fairy.
The Period Fairy knows everything there is to know about the world and its secrets. She’s the real reason Eve was kicked out of the Garden of Eden and the real reason the Beatles broke up. She knew Marilyn, Jackie O, Betsy Ross, and Eva Peron and walked the campaign trail with Hillary. She partied with Janis Joplin and made Mother Teresa cranky. She went into battle with Joan of Arc and Annie Oakley. She gave Pocahontas a headache and navigated with Sacagawea, and turned Mata Hari against her own. She’s why Catherine the Great was fond of those big skirts and why Cleopatra was such a tyrant. And she’s the real reason the Mona Lisa wouldn’t smile that day for DaVinci.
She even irritated the Virgin Mary.
Each book will be feature 10-15 key women in history. The intention is to create a series of these books all featuring different women from history. We will pick a random woman from history or do different time periods or musicians or artists. Name a woman in history and Period Fairy has a story about her work with her. They will be written in the first person from the Period Fairy in her charming way, much like a young Ellen DeGeneres would speak. Each small story will feature what really happened in history and will be humorously illustrated on the opposite page. Stories such as Period Fairy in battle with Joan of Arc, getting kicked out of the Garden of Eden, Hanging with Amelia Earhart, etc.
The Period Fairy
This is the first person account of my work with women through the ages. I’ve worked with every woman in history beginning with the beginning.
Yes, Eve was my first client.
I know all the secrets. I have had much to do with shaping history as we know it. I was there. Never before have I decided to divulge this information. Not even to my famous clients, Barbara Walters or Oprah. They might have made me feel a little weepy and vulnerable. But then again so did they when I visited.
But now, I feel it’s time I let women everywhere know how truly connected we all are. I’ve chosen several famous and historical clients throughout history as my subjects for these stories. They may be famous, but there’s one thing they (and you) all have in common.
Yes, I’ve made a few enemies along the way. And yes, I’ve caused some problems, but that’s part of the job. I learned to roll with it.
Like death and taxes women come to understand that I just am.
You might be surprised to find out how things in history happened.
But it’s true.
Examples of stories
‘Adam & Eve & Me’
The story of how Eve was kicked out of the Garden of Eden because of me. Adam wasn’t too happy with Eve when I was around and quickly showed us the ivy covered exit gate. (She actually was kind of a bitch when I was around so I created PMS just to be mean, but that’s another story.)
The story about a big talking snake and an apple – not true.
No man was ever going to admit that Eve was kicked out of the Garden of Eden because of the Period Fairy, so he created that big macho snake scenario.
‘Me, Mona and DaVinci’
DaVinci had originally started painting Mona with a big toothy grin but I showed up, and the rest is history. While I was around he never could get that big smile out of her again and decided to paint her anyway. I actually think that’s a good thing. I have serious doubts that painting would have ever been a masterpiece without me there.
Mona had a big sugar addiction and rarely brushed and this was way before fluoride and floss. Her teeth were pretty scary.
‘Joan of Arc’
Joan. Great girl. Really cute. A little loopy. But cute. Never knew what I was getting into when I had to visit her. Sometimes I’m on the back of a horse in battle, sometimes we’re kneeling in church, last few times we’re in an English jail. (And the Tooth Fairy has the nerve to kvetch to me about her clients.)
Sorry to say, our work ended abruptly. But 500 years later the Catholic Church declared her a Saint. Which made it a little easier on my trips to the convents.
Seeing a statue of that spunky teenager always made me smile.
For close to 10 years I made a trip to a small island 1200 miles south of Howland Island. An island not on any map and so tiny, no one saw it bobbing in the Pacific Ocean. It’s there that I would visit Amelia. Yes, Amelia Earhart. She’d been there since 1937, alive and well.
Spent a lot of time looking for cocoa plants when I was there. (Not Godiva, but gets you by in a pinch.) She’d toss me a grouper instead and I’d swear to myself I gotta find another job. At night we’d light the SOS logs on fire and I’d tell her the latest conspiracy theory on her disappearance.
Stories coming; The Period Fairy and…
And the list is endless…
