When Daniel Haack ’10 released his first book ‘Prince & Knight’ in 2018, it quickly earned praise for telling the groundbreaking fairy tale of two men slaying a dragon and then falling in love.
And along with accolades for the way Haack’s book spun the traditional tropes of fairy tales to reflect and validate the LGBTQ community, came repeated questions about what happens next.
While it might not have been surprising, given the success of the book, the requests did catch Haack slightly off-guard.
“I never wrote the first book with the idea that there would be a sequel,” he said. “After it came out, I was hearing from both readers and my publisher that there was interest in exploring more with these characters, which was exciting for me.”
