About the Collection

ONE BELOVED STORY,

What happens when Cinderella is so 
painfully shy that she cannot bear the 
idea of attending the royal ball? Or when 
the slipper fits . . . but on the wrong girl? 
  What happens when Cinderella is determined to oust an impostor prince 
  from her rightful throne? Or when she is a cendrillon miner working from 
  a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens when Cinderella, 
  a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner trapped in a 
  frightening fairy circus?

Here is Cinderella as you have never met her before, wearing glass slippers 
and off on unforgettable adventures!

Today's Cinderella of the Day is Clara Diane Thompson author of
                                                                  The Moon Master's Ball.
My interview with Clara

Q)  Why The Moon Master’s Ball, where did this 
title come from?


A)  That title came out of thin air. Well, it more 
than likely came from God, but it seemed like 
thin air to me! I was up late one night, planning, 
wracking my brain on what I could possibly write 
as a Cinderella story, when I thought of the moon. 
The moon is kind of mysterious and romantic, 
right? When midnight rolls around, the moon is out. 
That was kind of Cinderella-ish. Well, what if there 
was a master of the moon? His name would be the 
Moon Master. Then the light bulb flickered on, and 
I decided that I would form a story around a ball. 
The Moon Master’s Ball, to be exact! So that is how the title came to be.

About Clara Diane Thompson:

Clara Diane Thompson lives in the swamps of Louisiana with her 
loving family, dashing dog, and a very confused frog that resides 
in the birdhouse outside her window. Aside from writing she enjoys 
playing guitar, singing, Broadway plays (particularly The Phantom of 
the Opera), ballet, tea with friends, and long BBC movies. An 
enchanted circus may or may not appear occasionally in her back 
yard.

About The Moon Master's Ball: 

After her terrifying experience there several 
years ago, the one place young housemaid Tilly
longs to avoid is Bromley’s Circus. But when 
kindly Lord Hollingberry begs her to deliver a 
message to the mysterious Moon Master hidden 
away among the circus dwellers, Tilly can’t 
refuse . . . and finds herself ensnared in a web 
of enchantment cast by the loathsome Mrs. 
Carlisle and her beautiful goddaughter.


My thoughts:
Tilly has avoided Bromley's Circus since
she once visited it years ago and had a
experience she won't soon forget.

For some reason no one can understand why she refuses to go.
But that is about to change when her employer Lord Hollingberry
But who is this mysterious Moon Master and what is his link to Lord Hollingberry.

But Bromley's Circus isn't Tilly's only concern.  Lord Hollingberry has just employed a new
housekeeper.  And there is something not quite right with Mrs. Carlisle and her beautiful
daughter Drosselyn.  

Can Tilly overcome her fear long enough to find her happily ever after?  Or will she become
yet another "resident" of Bromley's Circus as her worst fears come true yet again.
