When I was seven years old, I discovered my grandmother’s copy of Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz.
A kindly librarian guided me to and through the rest of the original series (fourteen books! an entire shelf!), starting with the first book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
I was hooked.
Like Dorothy (“Dee”) Gale, I’ve always loved stories about children on a journey into the magical unknown. When I started writing this book, I couldn’t travel outside the United States because of the pandemic. The Emerald Isle became my Emerald City, full of wonder and adventure. When I was finally able to visit Dublin, I retraced Dee’s footsteps, ducking into bookstores, poking into alleys, wandering the campus, chatting in pubs. I found my way by a combination of memory and instinct, surprised by the thrill of discovery, the shock of coming home around every corner.
That’s what I want to share with you, whether you travel to Ireland or visit from your favorite reading chair—that joy, that escape, that sense of adventure.
May you find the power that’s been inside you all along. And happy reading!
