In her book “Anstice,” Sitka resident Marjean Ragsdale tells the story of a 13-year-old girl named Leyla who has just been orphaned in an automobile accident. The story takes a turn toward the fantastical when Leyla is called upon by a race of aliens to become their new leader.

The book is the product of more than seven years of active work. But, as Ragsdale told KCAW, she’s known her main character a lot longer. Hear the interview:

“Anstice” is available for sale at Old Harbor Books or online.
