Lizella's Stories

Scuffed up fairy tales, magical realism & lots of suspense Story time!

Hi, I’m Lizella, and I write stories.

I’m not really a lizard.

I’m especially partial to very short stories with dark or twisty endings. I love to rip apart old classics and put them back together with the seams showing and the stuffing peeking out. I regularly upend expectations. And I stealthily sneak magic into otherwise ordinary situations. Uh oh!

When I’m not dreaming up new ways to torture fairy princesses, I write business journalism under a different pseudonym and try to keep up with one husband, two kids, and four large dogs.

You can find me intermittently on Medium, Twitter and Goodreads. (I’d much rather write than tweet!)
