The Magic of Magus

Proclaiming her fantasy series, The Magic Of Magus, will be the most diverse ever written, P K McHugh instantly hooks readers in with her first release, Magus And The Navaratna. 

In 2019, after her husband gifted her the first Harry Potter book, McHugh was issued with a challenge to create a captivating story, with diverse characters, in two weeks. She accepted and, driven by her unwavering belief in the importance of diversity in literature, created the Magic of Magus Series: The World’s First Most Diversity Inclusive Story for Children and Youth. A testament to her passion and dedication, she drew inspiration from her experiences in New Zealand and hopes her readers will find as much joy in her book as she did in creating it, and she invites the public to experience the magic for themselves.

Inspired by her favourite author, Enid Blyton, P K McHugh replaces Blyton’s famous five and secret seven with 18 eighteen-year-olds. While on a mission to celebrate the diversity of each of her protagonists, she will impress readers with her world-building and the authenticity and emotional growth of the eighteen teenagers.

P K McHugh has ambitions for her main characters, and narratives from every country, to be more relatable in more countries and cultures than J K Rowling’s Harry Potter series.  With 200 countries the number to beat, the unique and diverse cast of characters in this first book sets it apart and puts her on the right track.
