“Diet. Starts. First.Thing.Tomorrow,” I huffed as I slogged ever upwards. My Olympic hopeful selfwould have kicked my middle aged-kiesterif she could see my sorry state.I was breathing so hard that I didn’t notice the point when I crested the hill. I did however notice when the road came to an abrupt haltbydead-ending at a massive oak. I pausedand took in my surroundings. “Hello? Is anyonehere?” I scanned frantically for any signs of human habitation but nothing. No vehicle, no cute little cottage,or newly finished mansion. At that point,I would have given my left boob for the dreaded yurt. Was that want ad some sort of joke? If so,it might prove to be deadly. “What sort of sick bastard—?”
“Hey, what’s all the shrieking about?” A male voice said from above me. I craned my neck and locked gazes with a pair of brilliantblueeyes for the second time that day. “Robin Goodfellow?” “In the flesh.” He smirked as though it was some sort of joke. He stood on a platform that jutted out from the trunk of the tree about thirty feet above my head and was leaning over the railing, peering down at me. “Joey Whitmore, right? The woman who wants to change October 3rd,1996. What are you doing here?” Odd that he remembered the date. Then again, meeting me was probably the strangest part of his day. “My”–behemoth gas guzzler—“car died.” “I recall.” The lines around his eyes crinkled with amusement. “You look cold. Hold on a sec, I’ll be right down.” “Okay,” I said because really, what else was I going to say? The sound of footsteps came from insidethe tree. And then a door shaped like an upside-downacorn that I hadn’t even realized was there swung inward. He appeared, silhouetted by an amber glow. “Come on in.” Something wasunsettling about Robin Goodfellow. He seemed amused like there was a private joke and he was the only one in on it. Deep-seated instinct warned that I would be an idiot to trust him.

I debated if it was a good idea to involve Darcy for so long that someone tapped me on the shoulder. A familiar liltingWelshvoice murmured in my ear. “Lamb, are you almost done stalling? We’re on a bit of a schedule.” I whirled around to face the fae prince. “Robin. You’re here.” “For a limited timeonly.” He inclined his head. “No need to thank me for saving the exuberant mortal imp from having all her teeth knocked out.” “Because I should never thank a fae?” I asked. “That’s one reason. There is no sound more abhorrent than the scream of a human child.” He studied me. “Is that what you’re wearing?” I looked down at my black and aqua hoodie worn over a black tank and black stretch pants. “What’s wrong with what I’m wearing?” “It’s not exactly bridewear.”

For no good reason, I decided to make Joey Whitmore, the heroine of the Magical Midlife Misadventures series, a former elite gymnast. I have to confess, I knew less than nothing about gymnastics other than what I remember from watching the Olympics. I never did gymnastics and my sons were all about karate and soccer and marching band and STEM. I had to research the hell out of gymnastics just so I could make sure Joey was believable. So why pick gymnastics?
Mostly because I wanted to have someone desperate to change her past. Someone who was haunted by the question if only.
We all have if onlys in our lives. If only I had skipped that party. Gotten my license sooner. Had stopped smoking. Had finished college. Could lose ten pounds. Most of us go on living with our if onlys. Joey’s if only had to be so compelling that she would throw away her good judgment and make an open-ended bargain with an untrustworthy fae prince for a shot at reclaiming her if only life.
