This outstanding, and hilarious, short story can be found in the Villains Victorious anthology edited by the ubiqitous Martin H. Greenberg and John Helfers. 

Told from the perspective of the classic Dark Queen of faery tales dictating her biography to a hapless scribe it is one of my favourites that I dig out every so often.

Best line: “I dealt with the council in the traditional manner, replaced the carpets, and set about consolidating power.”

Thoroughly recommended, track it down if you can
