Sydell Voellerabout this book: Summer Magic was inspired by my earlier "circus book," Merry Christmas Marcie, which was also my first published book. When I was a child, I fell in love with the circus. My dad used to take me to performances, and when we'd come home, I loved to pretend I was an aerialist by riding high on his shoulders. What fun it'd be to run away with the circus someday, I dreamed—although my more practical inclinations led me into a nursing career instead. Later, when I'd decided to pursue writing seriously, I read an article about a teen aerialist that traveled with his family's circus. He'd stated he was always leery about forming friendships with teens "on the outside," because when it was time for the circus to move on to the next town, he might never see them again. Voila! I'd discovered an exciting teen hero who'd built a fortress around his heart in order to protect his feelings, especially if he were to fall in love.
Now in Summer Magic, the characters are in their twenties, grown-up and more sophisticated. And Michael, the hero, knows that he was destined to perform with the circus forever. Yet when Lisa, the pretty auburn-haired heroine, accepts a position as a veterinary assistant with the hard-to-please circus vet, Michael has his doubts that she'll hang in there for long—after all, the other assistants left almost immediately. Michael is faced with a dilemma. Dare he give his heart away to the beautiful woman who has captured his very soul but will soon be gone? And what about Lisa, who hast recently been stood up at the altar by a power-seeking attorney? She, too, has erected her own walls, despite the fact she's falling hard for circus star Michael, whom all the women idolize and lust after.
