Sarah E. Morin – What if Sleeping Beauty Refused To Wake Up?


Sarah will be signing and selling her book at the 66th Annual Christmas Gift & Hobby Show, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, West Pavilion, on Wednesday, November 11th from 10:00 A.M. – 8:00 P.M. and Saturday, November 14th, 3:30 P.M. – 9:00 P.M., in the Local Authors’ Booth #303.

Lose yourself in Sarah E. Morin’s twisted fairy tale, Waking Beauty.

Waking Beauty
This rescue isn’t going at all how he planned. Secondhand hero Prince Arpien intends to gain a throne and the Sleeping Beauty’s heart with a single kiss when he wakes her from the evil fairy’s curse. But kissing the princess is only the beginning of a series of unforeseen obstacles: man-eating bugs, deadly spindles, talking lapdogs, and fiery pickles. The Sleeping Beauty is the biggest complication of all.

Princess Brierly is Beautiful and fairy-Gifted, but also…daft. After one hundred years of sleep imprisonment, Brierly refuses to believe this rescue is anything more than a tantalizing but doomed dream.

Arpien is drawn to the vibrancy beneath Brierly’s indifferent exterior. Can they reclaim her kingdom? Do they dare trust in the Prince of the old tales to help them battle the evil fairy who cursed Brierly? What is the price of waking beauty?

This is not the story of an innocent damsel-in-distress or her cardboard rescuer. It is a full coming-of-age struggle in a world where truth shifts as often as dreams.


Sarah E. Morin serves as kid wrangler at an interactive history park. Her 100 youth volunteers are her best consultants in the fields of humor, teenage angst, and spinning wheels, which, they assure her, are not hazardous to anyone but Sleeping Beauty.

She is actively involved in the local writing community and is cofounder of NICE, which encourages artists to connect to classic literature. Waking Beauty is her first novel. It earned her a spot as finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Contest.

Her dramatic works range from a musical about Susan B. Anthony to fairy tale poetry. She enjoys giving writing workshops and performing her work, especially pieces that allow her to dress up in her queen costume. When she grows up she wants to be a child prodigy.
