As a young mother Rosemary Brossard published “The ABC’s of Preschool” which was a large plethora of ideas to help mothers of preschoolers learn numerous educational skills. She happily gave many volunteer hours in the public schools promoting enrichment ideas for additional study, assisted the teachers, and offered endless hours in community service for children.

She has written stories and poems all her life. According, to her teachers comments they all encouraged her to continue writing. However, in the last 10 years she has become focused on writing with a purpose. Such as Parables, & Fantasy with lessons to be learned. Children and children’s literature is enticing her on. She currently is a member of the Southern Utah Heritage Writers guild.

She is mother of five children, and spent endless hours with them in public libraries.  Her children are all married now. She lovingly embraces her twelve beautiful grandchildren.

Welcome to my blog, Rosemary. I love the book cover. Please tell us about this children’s fantasy.

Captivating flying insects and birds live in the Kingdoms of Pardalis. Unusual magnetic portals provide thrilling transportation for the stirring adventures of the six heirs of the King and Queen. You will discover all the dimensions of Pardalis as you turn the pages of this book.
The King and Queen live in the highest ruling order of all the Kingdoms of Pardalis. Their land is the largest and most important order of this complex seven-dimension Kingdom and their ruling land is called by the same name, Pardalis.
The heirs of the King and Queen must learn to work as a team and triumph over the trials of their awakening in order to go on to the next phase of their development. If they do not conquer, they must go again until they do. It is critically important that they become strong both as a team and individually in order to take upon themselves leadership positions in the Kingdom of Pardalis.
They must all go through their final Transformation in Sagitta where they will emerge with full flying power. Only the heirs will have the ability to glow in three colors: yellow, green and orange. The brightness of their glowing will increase as they continue to help rule the Kingdom of Pardalis with wisdom and hard work.
When the ruling days of the King of Pardalis come to an end, he will choose one of his three sons to become the next King of Pardalis. The gradual increase of their glowing will help the King choose his successor. This son will then choose a queen who will also develop special glowing qualities when she becomes a Ruling Mother. Their days of ruling the Kingdom will continue to increase their glowing power. The other heirs will continue to rule as they work together in their responsibilities. But the King and Queen are the only ones who will eventually have full glowing powers as well as other gifts of special humming frequencies.

Where did you get your inspiration for this story?

This book started on a small scale parable Christmas gift for my grandchildren.  Every Grandmother wants to encourage her posterity to make good choices.  I felt the best way to do this was in story form. This would allow them to draw their own conclusions and come to realize how important every decision they make becomes a guiding thread in their personal fabric of life. 

The purpose of the Parables told in the exciting adventures of The Fireflies of Pardalis is to enhance the time honored values of:
Family unity and love
Obedience
Selflessness
Patience
Confidence
Good Leadership
Conquering fear and embracing trust

What age group is this book written for?

It’s geared toward 5th to 8th Graders.

Tell me about one of the fireflies and what you love about him or her?

Rigel finally faced his own personal awakening that many questioned he would ever achieve. His rescue, a miracle in the making, took the combined effort of all the fireflies’ heirs to accomplish. He was aggressive, independent and short tempered. His awakening brought him to understand how to channel his power in ways that would help others rather than dominate in power over them. His life was spared and his growth astonishing.

Where can my readers buy your book?
