FCPL Hosts Author Panel
Have you ever dreamed of writing and publishing your own book? Unimaginable? Think of a recent book by a previously unpublished author that has been in the media lately, and its anticipated movie version opening, most famously, in theatres this week. You could be that author!
Fleming County Library will host its first Author Panel on Saturday,March 28th from 11 am to 1 pm. Featured authors include Laurel Heidtman, Lora Perkins, Brad Jones and Kent Freeland. They will be sharing their journey through the process of writing and publishing, as well as talking with guests in an informal setting about their individual works.
Ms. Heidtman is from Southwestern Ohio and currently lives on private land inside the Daniel Boone National Forest. She writes mysteries under Heidtman and romances under the pen name of Lolli Powell. She has a degree in Technical Writing as well as an Associate’s degree in Nursing. Catch a Falling Star is set in the peaceful college town of Eden, Kentucky and mixes “missing treasure, criminals, cops, co-worker hostility, and the surprise appearance of an ex-lover.”
Lora Perkins lives in central Kentucky with her husband and son. After accepting her husband’s challenge to write a book, she wrote and published Love’s Abyss, a historical romance based in the 1790’s, under the name of A. J. Wells. She is currently working on her second title, A Pirate’s Heart.
Bath County native Brad Jones lives in Lexington and is a former captain and Marine veteran of the Afghanistan War. In his novel, Black Walls Turn Gray, Jones writes about a Kentucky farm boy and college football hero who is honorably discharged from military service after suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The main characters in this novel are from Fleming County and a portion of the story takes place here; the Goddard covered bridge and Methodist church are prominent scenes. Jones plans to use his book as an educational tool to raise awareness about PTSD.
Kent Freeland lives in Morehead, Kentucky and is a Professor Emeritus at Morehead State University. In addition to technical writing, he has published seven historical fiction and biography titles that target an audience ranging from adolescence to adults. Historical fiction titles include Journey’s Edge, Odyssey to Iowa, and Prairie Pioneers ; A Street Called Darwin is non-fiction.
