M. Lachi, an acclaimed recording and performing artist and president of the distinguished Federal Toastmasters club in New York City, had been working towards the completion and publication of “The Ivory Staff” for several years while traveling to Africa and Europe, subsequently working on her Master’s degree at NYU and touring with her sundry musical projects.

Along with Enchanted Book Promotions, Lachi will embark on a virtual blog and radio tour from mid October to mid November, where arious blogs and radio outlets will review, interview and feature “The Ivory Staff”.
Set on an island off the eastern coast of North Africa, “The Ivory Staff” is a story about Samiyah, a young and smart yet impoverished girl who seeks to transcend her destitute class by showcasing her prowess to the regal establishment. After a run of raucous adventures, she finds herself among the daunting elite. However, having gone from the ignorant bliss of simple peasant life to the sobering misery of the base evils of power-hungry men, Samiyah faces a series of terrible personal trials liable to determine the outcome of an imminent, bloody revolution.
Rife with passionate dialog, edgy suspense, and epic conflict, this Dark Fairy Tale follows our heroine as she journeys to heal a nation broken by the internal prejudices of class warfare, armed with nothing but determination.
“The plot is flowered with subplots and compelling characters that readers will definitely fall in love with. M. Lachi exhibits the uncanny gift of bringing back the old art of common sense into storytelling, and it is this aspect of the story that creates the striking realism that permeates its every page.”
