“The Prince In The Flower Bed is smart, hip and hysterical. Roberta Olsen Major takes the reader on a madcap joy-ride through what one might assume is familiar territory, pointing out all sorts of new sights along the way. I laughed out loud, and If I could have put the book down long enough, I would have applauded.”
Award Winning Playwright
“The Prince In The Flower Bed is a refreshing version—mangled, but delightully so!- of a fairy tale that was never one of my favorites as a child. This adaptation is filled with real personalities, interesting twists, imaginative details-and just the right touch of magic.”
"THE PRINCE IN THE FLOWER BED is a fantastically funny fairy tale with a real heroine. A great read-aloud and great for book talks!"

Roberta Olsen Major wore out two toy typewriters as a child before her parents realized she needed the real thing. Throughout junior high and high school, she tapped out lurid, angst-filled stories peopled with impossibly beautiful characters speaking highly improbable dialogue.
Earning a BA from Brigham Young University, she worked for a time as a librarian in sensible shoes, before switching her Major to the care and feeding of a science-minded husband and two charming children.
A published playwright and reviewer of children’s books, she now lives in Texas, where she tap dances, collects dust, and is, as always, working on her next book.
