About the Book

Princess Bare Foot and The Tales from Togetherland came about through a chance meeting of John Townsend with Nimsi Micaelo. That chance meeting revealed Nimsi’s ideas for a book for children. She had the title already in her head, Princess Bare Foot. From their repeated conversations and exchanges of ideas, with John turning Nimsi’s ideas into short stories along with his own ideas, Princess Bare Foot and The Tales from Togetherland was born. The flow of ideas from Nimsi and John has continued resulting in a second book, even into a third book. The book holds fast to childhood—innocent, dreamlike, and happy.

About the Author

Sometimes a writer travels down a road that leads in a direction that even the author is unsure. He has written children’s fantasy before, As Thick as Two Planks of Wood (also science fiction), The Chairman, The Early Years, and The God Clock. Now he writes in a new direction, exploring the dreams of childhood, the simple reality that is based on love—not complex nor wrapped up in evil plans, but as a child may think. John was presented with Nimsi’s idea and wrote Princess Bare Foot and The Tales from Togetherland. With Nimsi’s imagination, it has been a great experience writing the book.
