Meet Alice – a self-sufficient young princess that uses her supernatural gifts to save herself. No prince charming necessary!

Alice is the magical main character in the young adult novel “The Golden Princess,” by L.R. Garner. After his family dispersed among multiple continents, Garner began writing this entertaining read as a method of staying in touch and keeping family ties strong.

“The story stems from raising our own family and having been made aware of royal family duties during my younger days of WWII,” Garner said.

In this coming-of-age story, readers follow 8-year-old Alice’s journey through childhood into her college years, introducing new friends, enemies and obstacles along the way. Pre-teens and young adults alike will relate to Alice as they face similar hurdles in their own lives.

Garner gets back to the basics of storytelling with “The Golden Princess” – the novel evolved from letters he wrote to his great grandchildren and great nieces every few months until eventually the book was a reality.
