Dr. Frank N. Stein has created an army of automatons to serve their queen. Of particular note: a prototype soldier. Part man. Part machine. The best of both worlds.
Doc’s monster is a threat to everything they know, but Alice sees something in the man that begs she look beyond what he’s done and search out the heart of the beast for the better of the realm.
He’s their only hope of survival, but how can a monster learn to love when all he’s known is hate?

A time for Madness
Once upon a time, I loved fairy tales. Then I grew up, and I learned a new appreciation for the stories that we often think of being only for kids. Fairy tales can tell us a story and teach lessons in ways that other stories can’t. They can help us reminisce about our childhood but also bring adult problems into a story and help us grow.
I love a good read, and when the opportunity to write a fairy tale came up, I couldn’t say no.
The whimsy of Alice in Wonderland is an all-time favorite and writing my own twist on this classic took me to a new realm of writing that I think has become my absolute favorite. Christian fantasy is a genre that not many know about but holds titles such as Secrets in the Mist by Morgan Busse and Dust by Kara Swanson. It’s books like this that give me courage to pen my own tales, though their incredible tales also require me to face imposter syndrome with every page.
I wrote recently about fear, and every story brings me to the edge of fear. Madness in Wonderland was no different and I rode the currents of fear in the airship with Alice, but God held us both and allowed this story to fly in ways that I could never imagine on my own.
I hope you’ll give Madness a try and journey across Wonderland in a new and exciting adventure.
