I love villains who have depth and motive behind their behavior. I thought the portrayal of Maleficent by Angelina Jolie was fabulous. I do believe villains are often misunderstood. That’s why I wrote Rumpelstiltskin’s Child. Everyone assumed the evil troll was going to eat the baby or do something ghoulish with it. But, there could be so many other reasons he wanted the queen’s baby. I think fractured fairy tales are a great way to open children’s eyes to someone else’s viewpoint. Don’t judge unless you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.
