About the Author
In an alternate universe, Lori R. Snyder is a circus performer--probably an aerialist wearing a lot of glitter. In this universe, she's had many different careers (none of which, sadly, are circus-related): marine biologist, fourth-grade teacher, dancer, yoga teacher and studio owner, book editor, and writer. Venice Beach is one of the great loves of her life, as are kindness, delight, and the sea, and The Circus at the End of the Sea is her love letter to all of those. Lori is also the founder of the Writers Happiness Movement, which offers free happiness tools to writers, at writershappiness.com.

This gorgeous story and its denizens are funny, wise, and a bit feral in the best way, showing us the beauty in embracing every part of ourselves. Maddy's adventures and her search for belonging tugs at your heartstrings and never lets go. I found The Circus at the End of the Sea glimmering with love and magic through and through."
--Cindy Lin, author of The Twelve and Treasures of the Twelve
"The Circus at the End of the Sea dazzles and delights with imagination and heartfelt feeling. It takes us on a journey that dares us to marvel at the magic that lies beneath the surface of the world, and more importantly the magic within our own hearts."
--Armand Baltazar, author of Timeless Diego and the Rangers of the Vastlantic
Lori Snyder's debut novel is endlessly inventive - rich with both sly humor and deep truths. As a fabulous bonus, Ophelia, the heroine's delightful octopus companion, is one of the best sidekicks ever! Adventure, mystery, heartbreak, and laughter abound in this wondrous first novel. Kids are going to love it."--Bruce Coville, author of The Thief of Worlds
