Leonard Tateabout this book: When the powerful Lamp of Spells is suddenly returned to its elderly owner, Maudella, after having been hidden for thirteen years, it was not a happy reunion for Maudella who is beset by troubles of her own. Realizing she could not protect the lamp, she gave it to twelve-year-old Jasmine for safekeeping.
Jasmine does her best to keep the lamp safe until she is attacked and forced to use it to save her life. Word travels fast that she has the lamp and overnight she becomes the target of the warring kingdoms, Rodan and Willowdown. Her task becomes infinitely more difficult as she is pursued by giant crows, black hounds, an evil witch and her king. With a little help from her friends, she fights to avoid capture and struggles to save her father, her homeland and the kingdom she loves.
• About the author
I have always been a big fan of medieval fantasy and wanted someday to write a book. The idea for "Jasmine and the Lamp of Spells" came to me one summer while keeping my twelve-year-old granddaughter. Our local library sponsored a reading program for the summer and we read every book on their recommended list. What I notice most about the list was the lack of young female heroes. So I decided to write a story about a young female and make her the hero, the role model. My motto was girls can be heroes too. This is my first novel and now I am well into the sequel.
My favorite expression is "Join the Journey!" and I believe the book will be as much of a journey for the reader as it was for me.
