An unlikely heroine, a handsome goblin, and a mysterious little girl—is that enough to capture your interest? No? Ok, how about gnomes in mushroom caps, magical trees, and imps who love sweet rolls? No, again? Ok, how about disability representation, high stakes adventure, a childhood friends to lovers trope, and a terrifying, skin stealing witch?!
Seriously though, A Daughter of the Trolls isn’t just another faerie story, it’s a faerie story you don’t want to miss!

I’m SOOOOOO excited to announce that Whimsical has signed our first YA author, (besides myself ), so please let me introduce you to McKenzie Catron!
McKenzie lives in sunny Arizona with her personal dog Finn and service dog Grimm. She is a wheelchair bound creative makeup artist fighting against disability stigmas one book and bodypaint at a time. When she’s not writing young adult fantasy novels you can find her over on Instagram sharing her art>>> @mckenziecatron
Whimsical will be publishing McKenzie’s debut novel in 2022, and while I can’t give you the full details yet, I can tell you that there are a lot of people in the world who need this story, (okay, well, maybe just EVERYONE needs this story). Trust me, you won’t want to miss out!
For those who’ll ask, yes, I (Micheline Ryckman) will be doing the cover art.
“Do you know why wildflowers are the most beautiful blossoms of all, my son?”
Dain shook his little head.
Soft waxen curls blew forward in the breeze as she lifted her storm-gray eyes to gaze out over the sea of petals. “Wildflowers are the loveliest of all because they grow in uncultivated soil, in those hard, rugged places where no one expects them to flourish. They are resilient in ways a garden bloom could never be. People are the same, son—the most exquisite souls are those who survive where others cannot.” ~The Maiden Ship
