Daiya the Balsam Poplar Dryad

A dryad is a tree spirit or nymph that lives in a tree. This Tales from the Lilypad original story by Marlene Wurfel is about a Black Poplar dryad named Daiya. This story is loosely inspired by Greek mythology and greatly inspired by my love for Balsam Poplars. Yeah, it gets a bit sappy.

Arachne Gets Revenge

This Tales From the Lilypad original by Marlene Wurfel is a mash-up of new story and ancient Greek myth. There are bits from Theseus and the Minotaur, bits from Arachne and Athena's story, bits from Charlotte's Web, and entirely new bits, all woven together for contemporary heros and princessess. Warning: contains lots and lots of spiders.
