ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Max Davine was born in a suburb of Frankston, Victoria in 1989. He began writing dramatic pieces throughout highschool, and upon graduating set off to Los Angeles to learn the art of writing and pitching screenplays. Returning the same year, he went on to study acting with Peter Kalos at the Melbourne Actor's Lab from 2010 to 2012, the year his first novel, "Terra Domina", was published by ASJ Publishing. As well as novels, he has written for the stage and screen.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Mary was a circus elephant. The Star of the West. She could dance, play the trumpet and pleased crowds wherever she went. In 1916, after a disastrous Wild West show in Erwin Tennessee, acts against Mary the five-ton Indian elephant would go down in history as one of the most disturbing bizarre cases of animal cruelty the world has ever seen.
But, Mary had a life before the circus. She was free once. Part of a wild herd. During the British Raj, she was captured, trained and sent to America to become a spectacle. Along the way, she loved, she lost, she made friends and formed bonds. She suffered heartache and experienced ecstasy. She was a living being.
