What happens when devotion turns dark?

The best stories are the ones that go where you least expect them… With MY DEAR PIERROT, wunderkind author Jim Bishop takes the fairy tale/teen witch trope and turns it on its head with dark twists that will tickle fans of Satoshi Kon’s psycho-emotional films and manga!

This is not your typical fairytale romance or teen-witch fantasy…

Cléa is a young noblewoman being groomed for a promising future with Berthier, the son of a Count. It should be a comfortable life, but foregoing the freedom she truly wants …the freedom to choose her own future. Fate introduces her to Pierrot, a charming street magician who sweeps her off her feet and reveals what her sheltered life lacks. Fascinated by his whimsical charm, Cléa follows him to his hidden treehouse in the woods, where wonders unimaginable unfold.

Berthier goes after her out of chivalry, devotion, and more than a little pressure from his wealthy father. But what he discovers in the woods is much different than what Clea experiences. Little by little, the delicate wonders of her new life begin to fall away, revealing questions and doubts …can Pierrot be trusted? Is their romance a lie? Is he hiding something sinister?

This fiery tale of passion and deceit may be filled with sorcery and wonder, but at its core beats a human heart exploring complex questions of Dependence vs Devotion and Love vs Freedom.
