He has spent years researching, interviewing, and uncovering never before known facts about a little known, but very popular in her time, magician: Ionia whose real name was Clementine de Vere and was the youngest daughter of magicians Charles de Vere and Okita (Julia Ferrett).

She had an incredible career and life. She debuted a large illusion show in France in 1910 and then toured around the European continent. Her first husband was a world-famous lion tamer; her second, an Old World Prince. Her brother-in-law was an American millionaire.
