Sandra Sóvágó-Royal has lived most of her adult life abroad in Europe, the USA and the Middle East. On her return to the United States, her adopted country, she decided to share some of her expatriate experiences with young children.
The idea and story of Magimus is based on actual personal experiences that Sóvágó-Royal and her family had in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She lived with her family and worked in Abu Dhabi, for nine years. After having spent years where Christmas is acknowledged but not celebrated, Magimus emphasizes the spirit of Christmas and the value of love and family.
Sandra Sóvágó-Royal was born and raised in Staffordshire, England. She graduated with B.Sc. and MBA degrees from Brenau University, Gainesville, Georgia, USA and now lives in the mountains of East Tennessee with her husband and two children.
