"Humorous Fantasy Romance!"

Queen of the Fae, Titania, bans from court subordinate Queen of the Pillywiggins, Ariel, for daring to defend Robin Goodfellow to her Highness. Though upset after centuries of loyalty to Titania, Ariel realizes she crossed the line because the biased Titania hates all half- breed Fae. Still King Oberon eases some of Ariel's anger and hurt by asking her to check up on his grandson while she is in the mortal plane.

In the realm of the Fae, babies just do not exist so Ariel is surprised by her reaction to seeing the infant. She wants her own baby and she chooses a friend of the Goodfellow family, Rand Thayer, as the sire. Not knowing the ways of humans, Ariel bluntly asks Rand to father a child with her. He rejects the idea at first, but soon cannot resist their attraction. However, a pregnant Ariel causes unique problems when her hormones go wild.

BUTTERCUP BABY is a humorous fantasy romance starring two warm characters. The essence of this tale and its predecessor (see Prince Charming) is that the audience believe in the realm of the Fae so that everything that occurs to and done by Ariel works in support of that concept. The fun story line provides the audience with humorous escapist material but also contains a serious subtle sub-theme of prejudice against an entire subspecies that stands as a reminder to the reader that Arab-Americans must be allowed and encouraged to join in our collective grieving.

2002 PRISM AWARD Finalist:
3rd place - FANTASY

A faery who wants to get pregnant.

A man with too many women in his life.

Magic, mischief and mayhem!

Ariel of the Fae had never seen a baby before. But then why would she have? Children do not exist in her realm. So the moment she finally enters the mortal world and spies a sleeping child, Ariel falls instantly in love--and decides she wants one. All she needs is a suitable mortal man...

Rand Thayer meets all the criteria. He is handsome, healthy--and fertile. Perfect. Except for one small problem... When Ariel boldly marches up to him and asks him to impregnate her, her flat-out refuses! While Rand may be a good catch, he certainly is not an easy one. Now, Ariel will have to rethink her less-than-tactful tactics and consider the strange possibility of getting to know him first...
