AWARD-WINNING SCREENWRITER & AUTHOR
The Princess Diaries meets The Chronicles of Narnia when an insecure teenager happens upon an ancient legend that reveals her true identity as a great and powerful warrior.
On the eve of turning eighteen, Elizabeth Hazel – an insecure teenager who’s anything but heroic – encounters a stranger who links her birthday with a legend known as “The Day of Desires,” her one chance to prove her worth and claim any desire of her heart.
The problem is that in order to fulfill the legend, she must travel to a strange world that’s been ruled by evil for thousands of years and face her deepest fears.
Thrust into the world of Ellon and aided by a dashing admirer, Elizabeth learns her destiny is as elusive as her confidence. For in accepting her fate as a warrior, any failure means the desolation of a world she grows to love, while her success guarantees a return to the life where she feels like an outsider.
Elizabeth Hazel and the Day of Desires is an adventure fantasy tale that proves how even the most mediocre person can find courage when faced with adversity.
