Abigail O’Bryan has a deep love of growing things and an even deeper belief in the transformative power of beauty and love. You can find her writing gritty but deeply satisfying fairytale retellings, hanging out with her littles, gardening, or–if it’s a Saturday–busting up with laughter while she plays D&D with her friends. If you want to get to know her better or get in touch, hop onto her website to join her newsletter or find her on Instagram or TikTok. Her dark fantasy retelling Iron Rose will be releasing August 2024. More information coming soon!


This unique reimagining of Beauty & The Beast is an enchanting combination of lyrical prose, valiant adventures, and poignant romance. Iron Rose will keep you reading well into the night and wishing for more of these indelible characters. I will never look at this beloved fairytale the same way again!
