Name: C H Clepitt
Publisher: Self published
Reason you started writing: I’ve always written. Ever since I was small I’ve loved telling stories.
Next book to release & when: Eye of the Beholder  - Released June 2020
Why we should read it: Because I asked nicely? Seriously, though, I never know what to say to these sort of questions, so I asked one of my beta readers. I did not expect this, or pay her!
      “You know that feeling when you unexpectedly stumble across something so perfect, so pure that it seems to answer a question you didn’t even know you were asking? That’s why you should read this novella. C H Clepitt’s queer retelling of this classic fairy tale is exceptional in every detail from the setting in 1930s France to the nature of the “beast”. Give this queer fairy tale a try, I know it will become your new head-canon too.”
Genres that you've written: Sci Fi, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Comedy, Cosy Romance, Satire, Contemporary and more!

Cats or Dogs: Both, but at the moment I have a cat with 3 ½ legs called Cass. 🐈🙀 K. Aten notes: Perhaps Aileen could have been a better name? But Cass sounds like a lovely kitty! 💕
Coffee/Tea/Water: Coffee in the morning, tea after lunch and water if I’m thirsty.
Weapon of choice during Zombie Apocalypse: Sword. Never goes out of style, never runs out of bullets. 
K. Aten notes: My thinking exactly! Clepitt's on MY team now. LOL
Hobbies: When I’m not quarantined I play netball and love going to the cinema with friends. Since I’ve been quarantined I’ve been drawing a lot more, and I’ve taken up felting! Educational Moment (because you KNOW I had to look it up): Felting is the process of producing felt, a textile or fabric that by combining and compressing the loose fibers or hair. Now YOU know too.
Do you fanfic? If so, favorite ship: I do not fanfic, but if I did I would kill that disastrous Chakotay/7 thing they did at the end of Voyager, and rewrite the entire last series of Lost Girl!

Eye of the Beholder: A Reimagining of Beauty and the Beast (Magic Mirror Book 1) by C H Clepitt
      When pressure from his materialistic children turns Claude into a thief, it is down to his youngest daughter to set things right. Angelique agrees to take her father’s place as prisoner to what she is told is a hideous beast.
      Angelique soon discovers that the so called beast is nothing more than Rosalie, a princess cursed to remain trapped in a castle, unless the curse can be broken, something she assures her is impossible.
      Angelique does not believe in the impossible, and sets about trying to find a way to save her new friend, who she is rapidly growing to love.

Eye of the Beholder is the first in a series of queer fairy tale retellings in C H Clepitt’s Magic Mirror Collection.
