Cameron Dokey

Cameron Dokey is yet another author of re-told fairy tales. (Pretty soon we're going to need a special icon for just for those, aren't we?) I've read more imaginative and richly characterized examples of the genre, but Ms. Dokey's books are well-written and entertaining, with the added charm of being inspired by some highly unusual source material, including Arabian Nights and Mozart's "The Magic Flute".

Ms. Dokey only has one fully original novel on her résumé. (Clearly a woman born for fanfiction.) In addition to the re-worked fairy tales, she has also written novels for various TV shows, including Charmed and Buffy.
