Fairy Women & The Fairy Godmother – Inspiration

Interesting notes from Judy Allen – Fantasy Encyclopaedia.

Fairy women can appear almost human but can also blend in and camouflage in the trees and forest.

The original fairy godmother from early Greek or Roman mythology where called “the Fates”. In Scandinavia they where called Nornir or Norns. There are 3 of them and they foretell a human’s destiny. This belief later changed to them bringing good fortune, talents and abilities to a newborn.

I thought this was interesting information and could be woven into a vampire/mythical novel similar to something a Charlaine Harris novel.
