Simple lines. Simple story. Universal appeal. It''s happened before in the publishing world, and it''s happened again with The Peril of Magnificent Love.

Author Bradley Trevor Greive walked into a rare-book shop in Sydney, Australia several years ago and felt like he was looking back in time. There before him was a creative force as raw, strong, and straightforward as himself when he was trying to launch his eventual hit The Blue Day Book. Her name was Emma Magenta.

Magenta is the author-illustrator of The Peril of Magnificent Love, the first of a series published by Night Butterfly, an imprint founded by BTG. The book introduces readers to the emotional world of a young girl who seeks love with a three-eared bunny and pursues a course to win him. Much to her chagrin, the girl discovers love''s path is fraught with illusion and strewn with disappointment. Nevertheless, the young heroine overcomes her disillusions and finds new possibilities and strength in the lessons she''s learned.

Magenta illustrates her seemingly simple tale with red, black, and white drawings that are filled with detail and emotion. Her keen, mischievous eye delves deeply and honestly into remote corners of the human heart. This artistic skill and the quirky text befriend readers on every page. The Peril of Magnificent Love''s emotional adventure is an empowering experience for women of all ages. The book speaks to an even broader audience through its reflection of innocent dreams, sometimes-hard reality, and discerning hope for the future.

About the Author

Emma Magenta was born in Sydney, Australia. Her drawing talent was recognized at an early age when she was commended for "The Best Depiction of Samson" in a school art competition. Later, and perhaps on this merit alone, Emma attended art school for several years. World travel, palmistry, and martial arts beckoned her from her studies, but eventually Emma''s art called her home.

Emma Magenta was born in Sydney, Australia, where she lives today. She attended art school for several years but was lured away from her studies by world travel, palmistry, and martial arts. Eventually, however, her art called her home. Her first book, The Peril of Magnificent Love, was nominated for a 2005 Book Illustration Award by the National Cartoonists Society.
