About the Author

David Clawson attended the USC Graduate Screenwriting Program, where he received the Jack Oakie Comedy Writing Award, a 20th Century Fox Fellowship, and had his sitcom pilot, BALANCING ACTS, produced. David teaches screenwriting at the LMU School of Film and Television. This is his first novel.


"Clawson clearly loves all of his characters, as they are eloquently drawn, with just as many reasons for readers to love them as faults. What ensues is a fast-paced, riotous, laugh-out-loud yet insightful story of secret love between two closeted gay teens, with Kimberly unknowingly serving as J.J.'s beard. --Kirkus Reviews

"A classic coming-of-age tale with a twist, My Fairy Godmother is a Drag Queen is funny, touching, and timely. Clawson explores issues like first love and fitting in with the ease and wit of a seasoned pro. I hesitate to say that this is the most inventive retelling of Cinderella of our time, but if the slipper fits..."--Aaron Karo, author of Me You Us and Lexapros and Cons

". . . a spot-on modern version for contemporary teens, with an artful balance of serious insights about being true to oneself and riffs on pop culture. . . A fun, lighthearted YA retelling that's an especially strong choice for collections in need of LGBTQ romances."--School Library Journal

". . . Clawson has lots of clever, inventive fun with fairy-tale conventions. . . Chris, who tells the story in his own agreeable first-person voice, is a thoroughly likeable character, as is J.J." --Booklist

"Ingeniously plotted with a spectacular cast, My Fairy Godmother Is a Drag Queen is magical excellence."--Shelf Awareness, Starred Review
