About L.T. Suzuki

A fan of swashbuckling adventure novels by Alexandre Dumas of 'The Three Musketeers' and 'The Count of Monte Cristo' fame, Lorna Suzuki had noticed that it was always the men going off on great adventures and enjoying the camaraderie of a brotherhood. Most often, the women were portrayed as the damsels-in-distress.

In writing the Imago Chronicles fantasy series, by adding a female protagonist, one that is reluctantly accepted into this brotherhood, the author drew on some of her own experiences as a woman in a once male-dominated field of law enforcement and martial arts to bring Nayla Treeborn the female warrior to life.

With over twenty-five years experience in various forms of martial arts, Suzuki is a 5th-dan Shidoshi (senior instructor) of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, a martial arts system incorporating six traditional samurai schools and three schools of ninjutsu under Japanese Soke, Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. Although Budo Taijutsu has a very long and rich history in Japan and is steeped in tradition, is only now growing in popularity. Practitioners of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu do not compete in the sports arena as the techniques incorporated into this system are used strictly for self-defense, never as a sport. To learn more about Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, please visit Shihan Phillip Legare's website @ www.shinkentaijutsu.com

When Suzuki is not writing the next instalment of the Imago series or her new Young Adult Fantasy Series, 'The Dream Merchant Saga', she is a scriptwriter for audio/video life-stories customized for clients, as well as biographic documentaries for TV. Suzuki is also currently a consultant on the PBS TV series ‘West Coast Adventures’.

She resides in the suburbs outside of Vancouver, BC with her husband, Scott White, a talented videographer and Bujinkan Shidoshi, and their charming, young daughter, Nia.

Imago Chronicles: Books One, Two and Three have been optioned to produce a major motion picture trilogy.

Review by: Samantha Martin on Feb. 21, 2013 :
“Look here you old, painted hussy! I am neither a tart, a trollop, nor am I a strumpet! I am a lady of refined breeding and culture, so bugger off, before this little poppet pops you one in that ugly, wrinkled mug!”
― L.T. Suzuki, The Magic Crystal

Princess Rose is the very pretty of a spoiled, pampered, royal. She treats everyone as if they are beneath her, and she throws shoes at her maids with a deadly aim. She even made her childhood friend her own personal court jester and ruined his chances of ever becoming a knight!

Tag wanted nothing more than to be a knight, but fate was cruel and instead made him the laughing stock of the entire palace! Instead of fighting in the wars, he was often found hiding in the broom closet with his trusted pet, Squeakers the mouse.

Princess Rose had everything that anyone could every wish for, but she found it all lacking. Her parents did not let her eat sweets as her main course, she was forced to eat prunes, and her mother wanted her to be nice to peasants! As if! So Rose hatches a plan. She was going to capture the Tooth Fairy. Everyone knows if you capture the Tooth Fairy that she has to grant you three wishes….at least that what she thought.

Instead of getting wishes, Rose got cursed. Now with the coerced help of Tag, and Cankles the local village idiot, Rose sets off in an adventure through many lands. Along the way she is forced into situations she never dreamed that she would be in. Throughout all of this Rose has been bestowed with a magic crystal called a “Dreamstone”. With the Dreamstone the Princess is allowed three wishes a day. Rose is elated, but can she learn to wish for someone other than herself?Princess Rose will soon learn many lessons and will have to decide if friendship is more valuable then all of the wishes in the world.

L.T. Suzuki weaves a laugh out loud tale of three unlikely companions who have to deal with angry fairies, crazy mime loving sorcerers, monstrous cheese making trolls, inebriated elves, hairy little dwarves, and did I mention the army of Mimes!

This story is a hilarious, romping adventure of Mel Brooks proportions!
