A Delightful New Book… FAIRIES ON MY ISLAND

Guest Post by Kelley Edwards

Posted: August 9, 2013

Christina and Shaun Patterson take you into the magical world of Fairies - a place where silliness and fun are just as important as being true to yourself and taking care of nature.

Before Christina Patterson found her niche market with Custom Wedding Toppers,  she used to make fairies.  She loved the challenge of sculpting her fun and funky designs into real little personalities, and had always hoped to find the perfect audience for her 'little friends'.

"I was approached by Terrilee (Bulger) from Acorn Press to illustrate the bedtime book "Dreamtime" by Deirdre Kessler. I had told her of my wish to one day make a book showing my fairies interacting with nature as though they were caught in the act. She told me to go for it and thus began the project."

But this time, her creation was not a solitary effort. She teamed up with her real-life partner, her husband Shaun, and together they came up with the book "Fairies on My Island", with Shaun taking on the role of storyteller. For the Pattersons, it was a labor of love, and they couldn't be happier with the results.

"We are often engrossed with our own creative projects in very different mediums, so we have not had much opportunity to work together. It was fun working as a team and getting to experience the book launch and the interviews together. We are always each other's number one fans, and this time it's all about the same goal."

"Fairies on My Island" is a whimsical and wonderful books that invites the reader to travel far and wide on Prince Edward Island - to uncover the secret world of fairies. It even comes complete with instructions on how to make your own fairies.

Lennie-PidChristina is pleased by the support and response to "Fairies on My Island", and she and Shaun are already thinking of their next collaborations; books that will incorporate more of her sculptures and his way with words.

As if that isn't enough, Christina also has a how-to book on sculpting in the works.

"Fairies On My Island" is available in select bookstores on PEI and online at
Amazon, chapters-indigo, and through Nimbus, the publisher site.
