The main character of my book, INZARED, QUEEN OF THE ELEPHANT RIDERS, is a sixteen year old girl named Bertha.  The story begins in the year 1843 in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina.  Bertha is misunderstood by her family.  She yearns for more than the ramshackle cabin high in the hills that her family calls home.  She is forever at odds with her mother and is a constant daydreamer. has this definition for daydreams:

Daydreams can be a motivator or a path to destruction.  They allow us to imagine things beyond the scope of our everyday lives and give us hope.  But, if those daydreams intrude into the real world, there may be consequences, sometimes serious.  As in Bertha’s situation, it can cause family conflict, or unhappiness.  The key is not making rash decisions when you are in the clutches of your imagination – what you perceive to be on the other side of the fence.

Do Bertha’s daydreams destroy her?  Does she make the right decisions?  Keep checking back to find out the answer.
