About 25 years ago on a Sunday afternoon, Houston resident Zane Carson Carruth sat down, grabbed a spiral notebook and started writing about a little fairy. She had her daughter pictured in her mind as she wrote. Carruth had no plan in mind or a story; she just started writing. As the story unfolded on paper and the little fairy lost the bead on her favorite purse, the toothy fairy story just happened – one page at a time.  Carruth eventually put the book away with the intention of publishing it at some point.   

The idea of publishing it resurfaced several months ago while attending an etiquette certification seminar in Charleston, South Carolina. “The instructor had written and published a children’s book, and I gleaned as much information about publishing as I could from her. Since then, I was laser focused on getting my book in print,” said Carruth.

Having just completed the coloring and activity book on The World’s First Tooth Fairy…Ever, Carruth is almost finished with her second book about Abella and her friend Darcie. The untitled book is about Abella and Darcie getting their first magic wands and their adventures learning to use their new powers.
