L. Leanderabout this book: As a child I had a vivid imagination. I was entranced by the circus and believed I would some day join one and be a famous performer. My life took a different path and I put my dreams of circus stardom away. I sat at the computer one night and decided to write a novel. As a singer/songwriter I was familiar with creating characters and stories, but had never done anything longer than a short story.
To my amazement, a young girl from Appalachia popped into my head and began telling me a tale so sad, so harrowing, so full of danger, intrigue and excitement that I couldn't type fast enough. She hammered at me until I finished the draft in a couple of months. I was thoroughly invested in the story as my protagonist wove her web around me. The story line - the circus! After all those years of wanting and hoping to be part of something so magical as a circus I created a novel full of Appalachian hill people, Gypsies, the circus, an elephant named Cecil and a young girl who becomes INZARED, Queen of the Elephant Riders. Old dreams never die do they?
