First up, a special author event:

Authors Among Us at Guildford Library.  [This is a new, free, events series focusing on local authors.] 

Session 1: “Criminally Creative: different ways to write thrills and chills.”

Wed. October 2, 2013. 7 - 8:30 pm

Join our panellists to learn how each writer interprets mystery. Discover why each author uses elements of mystery, how they incorporate them into their work and their approach to creating suspense.

  • Martin Crosbie is the author of the My Temporary Life Trilogy; the first of which became an Amazon bestseller.
  • Sharon MacGougan wrote "The Mayan Mysteries", a novel based on a real life mystery – the disappearance of the ancient Maya. It’s also about the inner transformation of a young girl.
  • Dennis E. Bolen is a novelist, editor, teacher and journalist. Dennis also uses video production to highlight his fiction and poetic works.

Next up, author Ian Weir.
