Most people remember Fables as children's tales. What is often forgotten is that these where originally written for adults to teach them morality and proper behavior, and degenerated into children's tales over the millennia. The few versions of Fables that still exist in their "adult" form are, more often than not, so archaic that both the story and the message is lost to all save a handful of scholars. What I attempt here is to re-introduce to the modern adult reader the Fable, perhaps the oldest form of storytelling we know of.

Have you ever wondered, "How did Fairies learn to be the good folk that they are? How are they taught right from wrong?" It was obvious to me that they to must have similar tales to those we humans tell. Careful research has revealed to me that there are indeed, Fairy Fables. I have begun translating a few and am delighted to offer them here for you to read.

Of the over one hundred fables I have written, fourteen appear below. The entire collection may be self-published someday, funds permitting. You will find some of the Fables will be familiar to you while some will be new. I hope they will all be enjoyable.
