Researching her family's Scottish roots, Author Lenora Henson was called to write an epic story about the lingering power of ancestral choices and magical heritage. The author drew inspiration for the fictional Snyder Farms, home to The Wicked Garden, from her homeland of Southern Illinois. The rich rural landscape provided a bewitching backdrop for a haunting family fairy tale. Lenora is a lifelong writer and also enjoys graphic design, photography and mythological studies. She lives in the Midwest with her daughter Sophia. This is her first novel.
