Peggy Mound McAloon grew up in a small farming community in the Midwest. As a child, she suffered abuse and bullying. Those experiences were her inspiration in writing the Elle Burton series. In her words, "I want to inspire kids to have a kind heart and help others and also empower kids in trouble to seek out someone who can help them."

She enjoyed a long career as the National Account Manager for Forius,Inc. a division of the National Association of Credit Management where she was a speaker, trainer, sales executive. She published her first book, "The Art of Business Credit Investigation" a resource guide for commercial credit managers during her career.

That's a great question Mili!

Fiorins look very much like a cross between fairies and humans. Their eyes are a bit larger than our human eyes. They have colored wings similar to butterfly wings (They come in many colors). The most amazing thing about the Fiorins is when they visit the dimension of Earth they are as small as a butterfly, but in their own dimension they are the same size as their human visitors.

Fiori was created in the mind of a wounded child. As an abused child, I dreamed of a place when I was little that was filled with beauty and kindness. It was a place where I would be protected by the Guardian Angels my mother told me about and where I would be happy and safe at all times. There would be no darkness. The sky there would be filled with the colors of the most spectacular sunset. The land of Fiori would be filled with flowers of every imaginable hue. It was as magical as any Disney movie I have ever seen.

I was a dreamer. I loved books and easily pictured myself in the stories I read and made up myself. My dreams were always in color and I traveled to a land where any child would love to go. What was small on earth would be large in my magical land and what was large would be small.

I loved being at the lake when I was little and would watch the reflections in the water, pretending they were doorways to the land of my dreams. Fiori has existed for me for decades. I have only recently decided to share the vision!(less)
