Elizabeth Haden Smith is in need of a miracle. B. Pinkham James might be able to provide it. Word of the inventor’s destiny engine gives her hope for breaking her great aunt out from her stupor of grief. But James’s inventions have a habit of working too well. He was run out of New York and San Francisco before he came to the wilds of Wyoming. Will he be running again?
Sometimes it’s better to let the unknown remain that way.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This story was originally written for an anthology of reworked Grimm fairy tales that never came to fruition. I found the Grimm story “The Aged Mother,” which I had never read before, and immediately thought I could use it as a jumping off point for an interesting steampunk story.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
B. Pinkham James is actually a character who was part of the background of a novel I was writing that eventually crashed and burned. I liked the idea of a 19th Century inventor with a past and thought he would go well with the reworking of “The Aged Mother” I had in mind. Whorle, the narrator, came about because I wanted to try writing a story where the main character viewed the action, rather than being the main partipant.
