"Whimsical and charming adult fairy tale"
Rapunzel feels gratitude towards her rescuer Prince D'arius
for she loathes the tower where she was incarcerated until
he freed her. She falls in love with her hero, but alas
this is not a fairy tale where they live happily ever
D'arius is a married man. Rapunzel is saddened but wiser
to the insincere male world she has just joined.
Rapunzel refuses to let down her hair ever again when the
next male in her life, Master Eremis the silversmith, turns
out to be as much as a cad as her prince. On the other
hand, she feels quite safe with a male cat Hemingway that
she finds until she learns that her feline is actually a
prince caught in a changing spell. He persuades the kind
but still naive Rapunzel to save his people from an evil
that wants to destroy them, but to do so they must to
through time to enlist a help of a twentieth century word
wizard sharing a surname and more with the feline prince.
This adult fairy tale will leave readers laughing
at the puns and other bon mots that would send Sigmund
Furred to a littered couch. The story line is loaded with
amusing action as Rapunzel gains insight to the road rules
of the real world which leads to fans enjoying this
facetious follow-up to the Rapunzel tale. Aside to Staci
Layne Wilson: In an emergency room in Germany, doctors
perform surgery opening the stomach of a wolf in an attempt
to free a senior citizen swallowed alive while the woman's
red-hooded granddaughter walks the waiting room.

Everyone knows the story of Rapunzel. Rapunzel of the
golden hair, Rapunzel who lives in a tall tower. But who is
Rapunzel, really? Does she like living way up high in that

she does after her escape. First she falls in love with a
prince, but he turns out to be a cad. Then she goes to work
for a silversmith, but he turns out to be a cad. Then she
meets another prince, and he turns out to be a cat. He's
actually a human, but an evil hex has given him the feline
form. There could be worse fates, but Prince Hemingway
really needs to save his kingdom and that's not easy when
you have a fluffy tail and furry little paws. He and
Rapunzel form an alliance, and despite her naivete, she is
determined to help him.
Fly through time, space and dimension with Rapunzel and
Prince Hemingway, as they seek out their only hope: Ernest
Hemingway, the mortal Word Wizard who holds the key to the
There's just one small problem...Ernest doesn't know he's
in on it!
