Welcome to Scribbled Horizons!
My twin sister and I have been avid readers for most of our lives and enthusiastic writers for nearly just as long. Though we have read and loved many books from a variety of genres, being legally blind has given us a special appreciation for the fantastical as we have always had to fill in the gaps in our vision with our own imaginations. This passion has influenced much of our writing and other projects.
This site is both an archive of our works and, we hope, a place where readers, writers, and educators might find some helpful resources.

As far as Cindy is concerned, Fairytale Magic isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be, and a Happily Ever After is only happy if a girl chooses it for herself.
When the pumpkins in the garden of the quaint, country inn started sprouting little wheels and windows, Cindy knew that it was time to go.
Honestly, she should have expected it. The magic always caught up to her sooner or later—usually sooner rather than later, and often just when she was starting to grow comfortable. Yet even knowing this, a shock raced through her when she glanced up from the sink and through the open door of the inn’s modest kitchen to glimpse the gleam of sunlight on twiggy, half-formed spokes...
Being a genie just got harder. Like granting wishes wasn't hard enough already...
