Author Name: Wanda Pyle
Book Title: The Steel Canyon Legacy, Book 2 of the Legacy Trilogy
Book Synopsis: Something was terribly wrong in the 1970s. In some ways the decade was a continuation of the 1960s. In other ways, however, it was a repudiation of all that had gone before. The American character had changed. For Tessa Kingsley and her family it was a decade of tears and triumph.
Finding herself alone and responsible for her two sons and an aging mother, Tessa must find her way through a world filled with fragmentation and skepticism. Tessa's journey takes her through the glittering nightlife of Miami, Chicago, and Las Vegas. But ultimately, she is unable to escape the demons from the past that follow her. She soon finds herself drawn into a world of drugs, gambling and mob vengeance before she finally finds the strength to break free. In the process, she also discovers her own sensuality and individuality. It is a legacy she will pass on to her children in the years to come.
Author Bio: A frequent writer of stories as a child, Wanda DeHaven Pyle always thought that one day should grow up to become a writer. Unfortunately, life had a way of intervening in best of her plans. She grew up in the Flint Hills of Kansas and her recollections of life on the tallgrass prairie have influenced her writing. Her work explores the untold stories of past generations and the impact they have on those who follow.
Wanda is descended from a long line of educators going back as far as anyone can remember. It seemed a natural course for her to take at a time when few careers were open to women. She holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Education, a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Psychology, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership.
She lives in Claremont, California with her husband and spends her retirement years writing, traveling and volunteering her time in support of at-risk children. She authors a blog entitled School Marms and Cowboys at https://drwandapyle.blogspot.com. Here she records the inspirations, reflections and insights gleaned through her writing. She also authors a separate blog at https://wandadehavenpyle.wordpress.com/ which is dedicated to the support of indie authors like herself.
