DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - A Duncan High senior had enough of the same old story of a kidnapped princess getting saved by a prince and then them living happily ever after. So Bridget Tolle wrote her own story.

The story “Elemental Kidnapping” was published this week by Tate Publishing.

Tolle said the book was number one in the Elemental Kingdom trilogy.

“I’m half way through with book two right now,” she said. “I haven’t started editing it. The editing process takes a lot longer than writing.”

The book is about a land with kingdoms named after the different elements - earth, air, water and fire - and the first book is about each kingdom’s princess.

“One night they all get kidnapped and (the story) is them working out their differences and working together to escape,” Tolle said. “When I wrote it, I mainly just wrote it for me. I didn’t have the intention of getting it published.”

Tolle said she has wanted to be an author since the first grade but got more serious about it as she got older.

“I felt called multiple times by God to try and get published and so the first couple of times I didn’t really listen,” she joked. “I was like, ‘Ehh I don’t really believe in this work that I am doing’ so I didn’t try to get published.”

Tolle will share her experiences of wanting to write, her journey to getting published and will also talk with other writers at an event next week. Starting around 12:25 p.m. Wednesday, March 23 at the Duncan High School Auditorium, students and the public are invited to come hear the author speak.

The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Tate publishing. All the links to purchase the book are on Tolle’s website www.btollebooks.wordpress.com.
