"...a perfect mesh between Doctor Who and Harry Potter..."―Doctor Who Online


"A powerful perspective with alternating points of view, this book is richly layered with mystery, intrigue, murder and deceit. It’s impossible to know who to trust in this fast-paced YA fantasy adventure. Author Mackenzie Flohr’s fanciful world of magic and monarchs offers a magnificent tale that brilliantly unfolds in this lovely coming of age adventure." —Children's Literary Classic


"...a worthwhile book for any teenage fans of magic and doomsday prophecies." ―InD'Tale Magazine


"As Flohr has indicated, fans of Doctor Who and Harry Potter will definitely enjoy this book, but it's not dependent upon enjoying those; the storytelling in The Rite of Wands stands easily on its own merit, and I wholeheartedly recommend you check it out!" ―Twintype Books, LLC

Mackenzie Flohr grew up in the heartland of America, chasing leprechauns and rainbows and dreaming of angels. Her parents nurtured a love of fantasy and make-believe by introducing her at a very young age to the artistic and cultural opportunities that the city of Cleveland had to offer.


From the time she could hold a pencil, Mackenzie was already creating pictorial interpretations of classic stories, and by the age of nine, she and a childhood friend were authors and reviewers of their own picture books.


While following her love of adventure, Mackenzie found a second home, the Beck Center for the Arts Children’s and Teen Theater School. It was there that a world of wonder was only a script and a performance away.


Yet it wasn’t until she was on a trip to Indiana, viewing a Lord of the Rings exhibit, that the innermost desire of her heart became clear to her. She wanted to write a fantasy of her own, one that could inspire imagination in others and lead them into a magical world of their own making. She hopes The Rite of Wands will do just that.


Wherever we live and wherever we come from is our individual heartland. Anything is possible and everything can happen. Pure imagination is in all of us—we only need to discover it, and sometimes story telling helps.
