It took a pandemic to get it all done. A former South Bend resident, Kassidy VanGundy, recently published her first book, “Cursed Fate.” It’s a young adult fantasy novel about finding a missing father, three princesses, hidden realms and a bad guy. Always need a bad guy.

The main character is Vincent, who has just graduated from high school. Kassidy said he was comfortable in his life until he found his family structure was messy. And that leads to his search for the missing father.

Kassidy will have a book signing from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Potawatomi Zoo. She will be near the lemur exhibit. Why there? Because Madagascar plays a part in the book. The event is part of the zoo’s 100th anniversary in River Park.

The book is published by Ukiyoto Publishing, Toronto, and is available on Amazon.

She currently lives in Allston, Mass., which is a neighborhood of Boston. She is a graduate of Adams High School, Hanover College and Boston University.  At Boston, she received her master’s in international affairs with a concentration on diplomacy.

She said she started to write the book when she was 19. It was put on hold until the world closed down. “I channeled my creativity into the book.”
