Overview

A modern fairy tale from Leonard Kinsey, the bestselling author of "The Dark Side of Disney".

Man-child Blaine McKinnon is brilliant, wealthy, and completely alone. After an emotional breakdown, Blaine starts a new life at the only place he was ever truly happy: Walt Disney World. But he soon finds that just below the surface of his childhood paradise lies a kingdom corrupted by drugs, violence, and deceit.

For the first time, Kinsey brings his fresh writing style to the world of fiction, with astounding results. "Our Kingdom of Dust" deftly combines an insightful and riveting tale with the humor and irreverence that made "The Dark Side of Disney" an international bestseller.

“'Our Kingdom Of Dust' is a fantastic and wonderfully written debut novel from Leonard Kinsey. A powerful narrative with some of the weirdest characters you’ll ever meet, it’s like a Palahniuk novel high on Pixie Dust, with a dash of the dark side of Disney thrown in for good measure. Suspenseful and hilarious, this is a must read for everyone who’s always suspected there’s a seedy underbelly to all things Disney.”
—Jeff Heimbuch, Miceage.com
“A fantastic story about a man who looks to his childhood for salvation from a life that has turned on him, only to find that things aren’t always as expected (or remembered). 'Our Kingdom of Dust' is an emotion-provoking read, written in classic Kinsey style.”
—Brett Bennett, WDWFanboys.com
“Kinsey breaks new ground with a tale about addiction – mental, emotional and physical – in his look at one Disney fan’s journey back to the memories of his youth. Anyone who has revisited their childhood stomping grounds and found disturbing changes will relate, as will anyone who has fallen in love so quickly that they couldn’t explain it. 'Our Kingdom of Dust' is a true page-turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final word.”
—George Taylor, Imaginerding.com
“Leonard Kinsey is at it again, this time exposing the dark side of Guests and Cast Members who’ll do anything for a taste of ‘Happily Ever After’. 'Our Kingdom of Dust' is one scary ride!”
—Ron Schneider, author of "From Dreamer to Dreamfinder"

Meet the Author

Leonard Kinsey was born and raised in Clearwater, FL, and was lucky enough to visit Walt Disney World over 100 times by age 18. As an adult he still harbors an unhealthy obsession with The Mouse, has acquired a large collection of vintage EPCOT Center memorabilia, and visits WDW at least once a year, maintaining connections throughout the rest of the year with Cast Members and other Orlando-based friends and relatives.

In his spare time he has published a comic book and written and directed a horror/comedy film which received international distribution. He is also the guitarist in a rock band who appeared on a hit FOX show and released two internationally acclaimed CDs.

    Kinsey Defines His Own Genre

    If you've read Leonard Kinsey's smash travel guide to Walt Disney World, The Dark Side of Disney, then you will no doubt enjoy his first foray into fiction OUR KINGDOM OF DUST. If you haven't read DSoD but your a fan of Disney you will enjoy this book. That is if you enjoy Disney with a little bit of dirt on it.

    Kinsey is carving a writing career out of telling adult tales and experiences at WDW. This ficticious account of the shady underbelly of the parks is no exception. He takes his very real naughty experiences and twists them into a tale to please the Disnerd in us all.

    If you check this title out be sure to check his other book, The Dark Side of Disney, out as well. If you enjoy WDW but some of the magic from your childhood has worn off then this is the stuff for you!
