“Patty Gayle and the Legend of Kingsley” is a fairytale set in Kingsley Lake, Florida, in 1960. It is the journey of Patty Gayle, a twelve-year-old awkward girl, who doesn’t think she has much purpose in life until she is given a key that unlocks possibilities of which she could only dream. The key leads her on an adventure to a magical land that she thought only existed in her grandmother’s stories. While on her quest, Patty Gayle realizes some of her fantasies, but must strengthen her faith in God, gain confidence in herself, overcome her own fears and emotions, and defeat a sinister sorcerer before the inhabitants of Kingsley can be saved.
I began creating this story in my own childhood. Once my fingers actually touched the keys, it took six years to complete. My own memories of Kingsley Lake helped me to make this story as realistic as possible. The Holy Spirit and my mother’s memories guided me through the rest. My prayer is that you, as the reader, can and will relate to Patty Gayle and the quest she takes to overcome her fear and strengthen her faith. As an adult, enjoy the simplicity of this story, read it out loud to your children, and please, by all means, try the hot chocolate! It really is good! Thank you for allowing my writing to be apart of your life, Cynthia
