Lia London: I first discovered a love of writing as a primary student (grade school) in Scotland. My friends and I would write sketches, some funny and some scary (at least we thought so) to perform for our friends. My teacher saw potential and let us perform them for the whole class. Eventually, I was writing sketches for school assemblies.
By my freshman year in college, I'd written a musical comedy for the Children's Educational Theatre in Salem. Scripts, narrations, and song lyrics continued to be the main focus until 2010. At that point, I had a dream that led to the first draft of a novel. It went through dozens more drafts before it finally became my debut novel, The Circle of Law. Suddenly the ideas wouldn't stop coming, and I began writing more novels, novellas and short stories. Dialogue has, of course, always played an important role in my stories since I still think in scripts half the time.
Kincaid Riley is an average Mage with an unusual dream--to see Nomers (non-magic people) and his kind get along in an integrated society. He lobbies to that end, and by senior year MAGIAN HIGH will open its doors to kids of all kinds--and dangers of all kinds, too! Sure, one kid can change the world, but can he do it without getting himself killed?

Diane Rapp's 5* review:
Lia London takes us into a world filled with magic and teenage hormones gone wild. Punkers attack without warning, greedy adults sabotage a noble idea, and a bunch of kids must overcome fear and prejudice to save the day.
This author weaves an intricate story to demonstrate that sharing love and working together makes people grow stronger. These kids stand on the brink of building a better world for everyone. Clever and well-written, this book is a plus on anyone's reading list. Harry Potter is so yesterday now that we can all enroll in Magian High.
(Full Trilogy Edition)

She must now visit all three worlds, receive three mystic gifts, and develop three superhuman powers ... unless the powers that be can stop her.

Diane's 5* review of the trilogy: This engaging trilogy grabs the reader from page one and doesn’t let go until the exciting conclusion in book three. I began by reading book one and quickly searched to find more episodes when I finished. Luckily, the author published the complete trilogy in one volume for readers like me. I love reading sci-fantasy! In this trilogy Lia London gives her readers three planets to explore (Caren, Craggy, and Tye) with a group of engaging characters. Caz starts her journey on a space station, feeling trapped, and longing to visit real planets. As punishment, Caz is sent to a reform school on the planet Caren and the adventure begins. There are challenges to overcome, and Caz faces real danger while gathering loyal friends who protect her. She learns to use her gifts and bravely faces the journey she must complete.
Each individual book is a complete story, but if you’re like me, you’ll become eager to read the whole adventure, start to finish. (I’m grateful the trilogy was complete, or I’d be biting my fingernails waiting to know what happened to Caz and the Gypsy Pearl.)
