A cursed lamp, 80s fashions, and dogs all figure in these modern, comedic versions of two classic fairy tales
The Genie’s Curse
The magic of push-up bras, hip music producing jobs, and trendy clothes can't undo Agnes Frump's horrendous moniker. Nor can they make her neighbor, Dillon McKenzie, see her as anything but his best buddy. A midnight walk, a fateful fall, the discovery of a magic lamp, and Aggie switches priorities. In her efforts to help Ebony, the kitten-genie and undo the curse of Aladdin’s lamp, she makes a fateful mistake—an inadvertent, “I wish I was in Dillon’s arms,” and Aggie wakes up in his arms, all right—as a stray dog.
Will Aggie and her genie figure out how to undo a wish gone wrong, or is she doomed to a life of Milk Bones, flea baths and loving Dillon from the foot of her doggy bed?
Shoe-In for Love
For shoe-designer Nessie Helph, 1984 is another year in the struggle to keep herself safe from her malicious supervisor, Grace Hart. Nessie’s problems worsen when she finds out the company, Victor & Victoria, has been sold to Leo Schumacher. Known as “The Lumberjack,” Leo’s reputation for cutting costs and hacking jobs is legendary, but Nessie’s prepared for any contingency...except the effect he has on her heart. She may not be able to get her hair to feather like Heather Locklear’s, but with a little effort and a lot of luck, she’s about to prove she’s not only the best girl for the job, but a shoo-in for love, as well.

When I was a kid, there was only one thing I wanted to be:a superhero. Sure, every kid loves Batman, wishes to soar like Superman, and wants an invisible plane like Wonder Woman's (though I really wanted her ability to see it), but I wanted more than to watch and hang out with superheroes. I wanted to be one. So, I practiced my boxing skills while saying things like, "POW! Take that evil doer!" and I honed the skill of changing into costumes while in phone booths (to the great horror of my parents). But there came a day when my dreams were dashed--the day I realized being a klutz was not, in fact a super power, and my super-weakness for anything bright and shiny meant a magpie could easily defeat me in a test of wills. These days, I don't get to orbit space stations (and thank God, because I get motion sick on a merry-go-round), but I still get to wear the capes, leotards, and say things like, "Stand aside! This job calls for Writer Girl!"
