(Pixieland Diaries #3)
Publication date: March 30th 2021
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

What happens when a pixie outcast seizes the throne of Faerie… while her beloved elf prince becomes a wanted criminal?

Sassy pixie Calla loves the prankster life, even if it does make her an outcast among other fae. But everything changes when Calla’s magic erases an evil blight destroying the Faerie realm. That’s when the pariah pixie becomes something unexpected: a Fae Queen.

Yet no sooner does Calla take the crown than a new and unstoppable plague appears. Things get even worse when Calla’s longtime crush, the elf Prince ‘Dare’ Darius, appears to have masterminded the outbreak before fleeing to the mountains. According to the Faerie elders, there’s only one way to end this disease…

Calla must hunt down Dare and destroy him.

Yeah. Like that will ever happen.

Instead of killing anyone, Calla vows to cure the plague while proving Dare’s innocence. And if she must pull a few mega-pranks to make it all happen? Not a problem. Even so, the path ahead is still fraught with trouble. Secret enemies scheme to manipulate the outbreak—as well as Calla’s feelings for Dare—in order to bring our favorite prankster down, once and for all.

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

My Dream Movie Cast for Pixieland Diaries
By Christina Bauer

As part of the launch tour for my latest book, DARE (Pixieland Diaries #3), the lovely folks at Books, Tea, Healthy Me have asked me to share my dream movie cast for the characters from this book. Great idea!

So without further ado, here goes!


Calla is a sassy and talented pixie. In terms of casting, I’m hoping for rapper Cardi B. Of course, I’d have to add in some musical numbers just to keep it real. Cardi B is so fierce, strong and outspoken… I just think she’d add capture Calla perfectly.

The Usurper

Since Calla is being played by Cardi B, it would be cool to have the antagonist of DARE be played by Candace Owens. For those who don’t know, Ms. Owens is a conservative commentator. Both Owens and Cardi B have their share of real-life battles, so this is another case where we wouldn’t need to spend a ton on acting lessons. 


To cast Calla’s love interest, I’d pair Cardi B with Chris Pine. After all, the guy can handle Wonder Woman, I think he has a solid chance to keep up with Cardi B. That said, I’d need to ensure everyone understands the need to avoid anything like the “Handsome Man” controversy from Wonder Woman 1984. No sex without verbal consent, people!

So that’s it. My dream cast for DARE. Be honest—you totally want to see this movie now, don’t you? God knows, I do.
