Overview of Treasures Retold:

These fairy tales are all set into a world where magic is declining while steam engine technology is on the rise. Naturally, not all kingdoms are equally advanced. Thus, there are stories that resemble traditional fairy tales and others that contain many steampunk elements. I very much hope you will like the mixture.  More in the future from this series.

Once upon a time in a world where magic and technology collide with unexpected consequences…

After her father is caught in the act of stealing a jeweled rose, Luna and her brother face a penalty worse than execution unless she works as the king’s mechanic. With her brother’s safety in mind, Luna does her best to please the king, trying to ignore his best friend, who is very interested in bedding her. As if these troubles weren’t enough, the king crashes a machine she considered safe to use and nearly dies. Can she keep him alive long enough to avert danger to herself, her brother, and possibly the whole kingdom?

What if Charles Perrault’s Beauty can do more than soften the heart of a beast?

KatharinaGerlachAUTHOR BIO:

Katharina Gerlach was born in Germany in 1968. She and her three younger brothers grew up in the middle of a forest in the heart of the Luneburgian Heather. After romping through the forest with imagination as her guide, the tomboy learned to read and disappeared into magical adventures, past times or eerie fairytale woods.

She didn’t stop at reading. During her training as a landscape gardener, she wrote her first novel, a manuscript full of a beginner’s mistakes. Fortunately, she found books on Creative Writing and soon her stories improved. For a while, reality interfered with her writing but after finishing a degree in forestry and a PhD in Science she returned to her vocation. She likes to write Fantasy, Science Fiction and Historical Novels for all age groups.

At present, she is writing at her next project in a small house near Hildesheim, Germany, where she lives with her husband, three children and a dog.
