Long before Dorothy ... there was Glinda.
Glinda only wants freedom. She wants freedom from her parents, freedom from her tower, and, most of all, she wants freedom her dreary life as the red-haired daughter of the Sorceress. She wants adventures like the ones she reads about. In all her fifteen years, she has never flown with Winged Monkeys, seen a magic mirror, or even talked with a Wicked Witch.

Tarl N. Telford (1976- ) was born on a high shelf, swaddled with books and nursed with knowledge. He is a novelist, poet, playwright, screenwriter, technical writer, and all-around knowledge manager. The eldest of nine children, Tarl quickly found his place next to the encyclopedias. Inspired by such authors as C.S. Lewis, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and Louis L’Amour, at a young age he felt the call to adventure and began writing stories. Tarl annotated The Wonderful Wizard of Oz novel as part of an interactive app project. His research inspired the creation of The Hidden History of Oz, a prequel series set in Oz in the decades before Dorothy. Tarl is the author of multiple screenplays, a handful of novels, several stage plays, a few short stories, and one really, really long poem that’s probably way too deep for an unadventurous reader. The Witch Queens is his first published novel. He dreams big in a small town in Texas with his red-haired wife.
