Lisa Bunker writes rainbow novels for young readers. Her previous works include Felix Yz (2017), Zenobia July (2019) and Joy, to the World (2023). She has made homes in New Mexico, the LA area, Seattle, the Florida panhandle, Maine, and New Hampshire. She now lives in Sacramento with her spouse Dawn, an expert on anxiety in children and an author in her own right. Between them they have three grown children.

Her interests include chess, birding, choral singing, and playing bass and piano.


What if there was a land where children were raised without gender until they grew old enough to choose for themselves? Fans of Ursula K. LeGuin’s EarthSea will relish this proud, loving homage to the golden age of fantasy, in which gender identity is explored in a contemporary way. Three young rainbow humans in a time of strife and palace intrigue must make personal sacrifices to claim their true selves.
