Young Iris longs for like-minded friends who value magic and the arts, especially since her twin brother joined the school bullies. She finds a key in a library book that lets her walk between worlds—out of her home in rural Florida in 1987 and into mythic lands of imagination. But will a sentient Shadow keep her from finding her purpose? Does she have what it takes to open the way for other seekers like her? Follow her epic quest through seven lands to complete her PRISM before it’s too late. Re-imagined myths & diverse identities come together with mythology, fantasy, and time travel on The Rainbow Path.
Iris Imaginoria walks between the worlds. As the Headmistress of the Imaginorium Academy, she teaches classes in acting, writing, stagecraft, mythology, pop culture, lgbtq+ identity, and metamorphmagic special effects makeup. While most of her classes are currently virtual, she is certified to teach both theatre and English in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. At the Imaginorium she guides students and adults in bringing this imaginary world to life. Iris began her first magical theatre camp in 2005. She earned her PhD in theatre from Louisiana State University and has written and directed many plays, articles, and curricula. On a more personal level, the Rainbow Path tells some of Iris's life story as her magical memoir, and real life can be stranger than fiction. She is a survivor many times over, including her experiences with cancer and mental health. She hopes that by sharing some of her very real experiences, she can make a difference in the lives of others.
I never expected to write about frogs or flies, much less chocolate frogs... or chocolate flies!
The Rainbow Path takes quite a bizarre journey, and the Frogpocalypse is only one of the odd stepzzz along the way.
Imagine the Key
You can catch more frogs with flies than with honey.”
I looked at the squirming frogs jumping around on the ground. That’s gonna take a lot of flies.
