The Queen of Unconventional Happy Endings
Like a midsummer’s dream, she appeared only once, made her rounds, and just as magically as she appeared, the Queen of Unconventional Happy Endings vanished again.
The character, created for a literary conference in San Diego in 2015, is based on a title given the author by his publisher, Debbie McGowan, from Beaten Track Publishing. Meant as a playful comment on pulling off a happy ending at the end of a novel dealing with some of humanity’s darkest chapters, the author made the Queen his own.
