When I was a kid, I fell in love with ballet. I took class when I was very small (three and four), then not again until I reached adulthood. Since then, I have continued to dance two, three, even four times a week for the last twenty-five years. I will never look like Sasha, alas, but one can dream.
Desert Flower and its sequel, Kingdom of the Shades, explore themes from two of the world’s great classical ballets, Giselle and La Bayadere, as they might play out in everyday life. I chose to set them in an imagined future—well, because, alas, in our world the joining is merely a metaphor. And if you can’t have fun speculating about the impossible, why bother to write (or read) fiction?
